Form for Restoration

The Restoration Form must be completed if you have: voluntarily removed your name from the Register/
were removed from the Register for non-payment of fees and wish to restore it to the Register of Nurses and Midwives.

Restoration Process

Following the removal of a name for non-payment of the ARF, the process to restore a name to the Register in accordance with Section 78 is as follows:

  • The Restoration Form above is downloaded.
  • The completed form and relevant documents are sent to NMBI.
  • The Restoration Fee of €250 and the €100 ARF are paid (section E of the Form).
  • It takes approximately 10-15 working days to process a completed restoration request.
  • Please note that in the context of the current emergency caused by COVID-19 there is a fee waiver from March 9 to May 31, to support those returning to the register.
  • As more staff have been allocated to support registration, in the context of this crisis, it can take less time to return to the register. 

A waiver of the Restoration Fee may be granted following assessment of exceptional and extenuating circumstances which caused the failure of the Annual Retention Fee to be paid on time. An assessment of the Request of Waiver of Restoration Fee Form and supporting documentation may take up to 15 working days.
