Annual Renewal Reminder: Window Closes Monday, 31 January 2022


The 2022 annual registration renewal window will close on Monday, 31 January and NMBI would like to remind registrants who have yet to complete the process to do so as soon as possible. NMBI would also like to thank all of those who have already renewed.

Registrants must renew online through our portal, MyNMBI. We would like to advise all registrants that we no longer accept renewal payments by phone. You can pay online using your own debit/credit card or if you are using a card issued to another person, please ensure that you have authorisation to do so. Under new EU requirements, the card provider/bank will request authentication to complete the payment.

To renew your registration, you can log into MyNMBI using the email address that the notice was sent to and your password. If you cannot remember your password, you should select the 'Forgotten Password' button and follow the steps to reset your password. Please do not create a new account or you will not be able to access your details.

To complete the process, you will need:

  • The renewal notification sent to you by email
  • Your password
  • Employment details (if employed)
  • A valid debit or credit card

Please note that there may be times when the MyNMBI portal is slower processing details and payment, as a result of a high level of usage at any one time. If you experience this issue, we suggest that you log out and come back to the portal later.


NMBI have created a video and guidance documents to assist you through the annual renewal process. The guides can be accessed through the links below and are available on our website.

Accessing your retention certificate

Once the payment is complete, you can download your annual retention certificate from the ‘My Documents’ section of MyNMBI. Please note that it may take up to 60 minutes to generate your retention certificate. You can login again at any stage to download your new retention certificate.


For those who require assistance to complete the renewal process, please call: 0818 200 116 (Monday-Sunday 9:00am - 5:30pm) or email our Registration Department at

When contacting us, please provide your name, Personal Identification Number (PIN) and date of birth to ensure we can deal with your query as efficiently as possible.

Legal requirement

All nurses and midwives practising in Ireland are required to have their name on the Register of Nurses and Midwives which is maintained by NMBI and each year it is necessary to pay the annual renewal to maintain their registration.

If the annual renewal is not completed by the Monday, 31 January 2022, we are legally obliged to include your name on the list of registrants that will be considered by the Board for removal.

Voluntary removal

If you wish to voluntarily remove your name from the Register of Nurses and Midwives, (for example are taking a career break or retiring), you can do so on the MyNMBI portal. This service is free of charge and the deadline for voluntary removal is 16 March 2022.

Should you choose to return at a later stage, you can restore your registration on MyNMBI, by selecting the ‘Restoration’ option. When restoring, you will be required to pay the renewal fee only and the restoration fee will not apply.

Further details can be found on the Voluntary Removal section of our website.
