Renew your registration for 2024-25

Registration renewal for 2024-25 has started for veterinary practitioners in Victoria. Your current registration will expire on 30 June 2024. You have until Sunday, 7 July 2024 to renew your registration without incurring a late fee; applications received from 8 to 31 July 2024 will incur a late fee. If you intend to practise next registration year, please apply to renew your registration following the instructions below.

The Board has fixed registration fees for the 2024-25 year, with a 6% increase. The fee increase will maintain and strengthen the Board's ability to regulate the profession and ensure protection of the public and animals in Victoria. The Board continues to review its processes and operational expenditure to ensure optimal cost-efficiencies. We are aware of the prevailing economic climate and have made provisions for those in hardship. If you wish to discuss your specific circumstances, please contact us before renewing.
