Two days later we will follow up with a phone call and answer any queries you may have around registration. You will be advised to apply online immediately to avoid any delays and to start having your relevant documents translated and notarised. The documents must be notarised by an official public notary who will be asked to sign, date and stamp each copy. You can find example supporting documents here.
When all the relevant documents have been translated and notarised, we will ask you to scan and email them to us so we can verify that they are notarised correctly.
Once all the documents are accurate, we will ask you to submit them by registered post or courier to the Irish Medical Council. The registration process should take approximately eight weeks.
You will be notified when the Irish Medical Council receives your documents and when they begin assessing your application. Once they have reviewed your application, the Irish Medical Council will inform you of their decision. If your application has been successful, you will receive a Certificate of Registration which will be valid until the end of the registration year.
We will work closely with you to support you with your relocation and ensure the process runs smoothly.
We will advise which locations will be suitable, depending on your family situation and personal preferences. We will go through the cost of living and how it varies depending on the location you choose. We will provide you with a letter of employment required to open a bank account and to apply for your Personal Public Service (PPS) number, which will help you access public services in Ireland.
Upon arrival, we will meet you at the airport and welcome you to Ireland. We will take you to your place of work and help you settle in. Over the coming weeks we will contact you regularly to make sure you are enjoying your new role and life in Ireland.
