Registering to work as an Anaesthetic Technician in New Zealand from overseas
If you are an overseas qualified Anaesthetic Technician interested in working in New Zealand, please be advised of the following important steps.
To work as a Registered Anaesthetic Technician in New Zealand you must first obtain registration with the Medical Sciences Council of New Zealand (MSCNZ) and hold a current Annual Practicing Certificate.
You must wait until you are resident in New Zealand or can provide evidence of your move to New Zealand, and then register with MSC, before applying for an APC. It can take up to 6 weeks to process registrations. For more information and required documentation, read the MSC page on the registration process for an overseas qualified Anaesthetic Technician.
