The NMBI Annual Retention Fee (ARF) for 2019 is due for payment before 31 December 2018.

The NMBI Annual Retention Fee (ARF) for 2019 is due for payment before 31 December 2018.

There are two options for paying ARF:

  1. ONLINE: We encourage you to use My Account to pay the ARF, which is available on the NMBI website.  Currently the majority of nurses and midwives use My Account to pay the ARF.

  2. PHONE: If you are unable to pay online you can phone 1890 200 116 to make your payment by debit or credit card.  This line is open from 9.00am – 5.30pm Monday to Friday.

Payments received by post, cash, bank transfers and personal cheques will not be accepted.
Please ensure you provide/update your email address, phone number, postal address and work place online so you can be kept informed and we can maintain an accurate register.

Annual Certificate and Check the Register:
Following payment of your ARF, your Annual Certificate will issue to you within 7 working days excluding holidays.
However, both you and your employer may check your registration status online (Check the Register). All you need to provide is your PIN or your registered name (both first and last name).  The Check the Register page contains the registration status, the registration expiry date and the division(s) in which nurse or midwife is registered. This is updated every 48 hours (working days).
Legal and professional responsibility to be on the Register
If you do not pay your ARF, NMBI will not be able to update your registration and issue you with an Annual Retention Certificate for 2019.

It is your professional and legal responsibility to ensure your name is on the Register if you are engaged in the practice of nursing or midwifery.  Practice includes clinical practice, nursing/midwifery management, education or research. Failure to pay your ARF on time may result in your name being removed from the Register. It is illegal to practise nursing or midwifery in Ireland if your name has been removed from the Register.
