National Route of Registration

You can apply to register as a pharmacist through this route if you have completed the recognised training in Ireland.

How to apply for registration

Applications are made in the PSI online registration portal. You apply for registration by creating an account (select 'pharmacist'), submitting your details and the necessary documents, and paying the registration fee directly and securely online. All details such as address and phone number must be included in your account on the registration portal, and a photo must be uploaded (please refer to photo guidelines).

The online registration portal contains instructions and information videos to assist with your application.

You will need to upload copies of these documents to the portal as part of your application. We recommend you gather these documents before starting your online application:

  • Your birth certificate issued by country of birth (including original translation where appropriate)
  • Your passport or ID card (including original translation where appropriate)
  • Evidence of having been awarded a qualification appropriate for practice (for example, the certificate awarded to you by your University)
  • A completed Health Declaration form (signed by your medical practitioner).

In addition to the above, you will need to submit the following by post in hard copy format:

Please do not post other documents unless specifically requested. The online registration process aims to reduce paper and postage waste. Contact our team if you have questions about the documents needed for your application.
