National Recognition of Veterinary Registration (NRVR) has applied in Tasmania since 12 December 2012. Veterinary surgeons (including specialists) who currently hold primary registration and reside permanently in another Australian State or Territory are entitled to practise as a veterinary surgeon in Tasmania on a part-time/casual/locum basis without having to register with the Veterinary Board of Tasmania.
