    I need some guidance and info . I have started the process for imc registration by step by step help of a senior . At this point i have mailed the documents with cover sheet to imc as per their requirement. How much more time will it take for complete registration and if i choose to work in pakistan for few years and do my training fcps here and after that go to ireland will my registration be valid till that time ?

      Dear Farhat!
      Yes your registration would be valid but you have to pay annual fee. You can choose an option to freeze your registration and again activate when required. please contact IMC to seek guidance on it.

      You have a chance! You will get reg in 6 months and then apply for jobs ASAP!

  10. HI
    I just received an email after 6 months that my application is forwarded to executive officer for second review. Is this second review a normal process? The email also states that it may take 10-12 weeks for executive officer to inform you directly of the decision and the next stage of your application.

    • Ahsan Zeeshan

      Yes this is normal! You are almost done! It can take 1 month now. They may ask for good standing if that is expired. Thanks

      • Thank you. Yes they asked for it recently and I submitted it again through PMC.
