Registration dates

If you are applying to become a registered member of the RCVS, you will need to submit your application as normal. Please refer to Applications - Veterinary Surgeons for information on how to register.

Please submit your application 4 weeks before you intend to start work in the UK, to allow enough time for your application to be processed and for us to receive all your required documents and payment.

The registration application process takes 25 days once we have received your application and all supporting documents in the correct format.  You will be contacted during the processing of your application if we have any queries regarding your eligibility requirements or documents you have submitted.

Your registration appointment will be by video.  You will receive further information during the processing of your application regarding a video registration appointment date.


For more information, please contact the RCVS Registration Department on 020 7202 0707 or email where a member of the team will be able to assist you.
