Once we've received all your supporting information, we'll aim to assess your application within 30 days. We’ll then contact you by email to let you know the decision and your next steps.

We’re required to make a decision on your application within three months of receiving your completed application. If we fail to do this, you have a right of appeal.

Appealing our decision

You may appeal our decision on applications for entry, renewal, or readmission to the register where the refusal concerns your good health or character, or a requirement to undergo an English language test.

You must make any appeal against a decision on registration within 28 days of the decision. This should set out the grounds of the appeal and any evidence to be used, such as the details of character referees or supporting statements.

There are no appeal rights where your application was refused because you failed to pay your registration fee or if you submitted an incomplete application.
