You will also find a large list of FAQs.

All GP specialty trainees who have NIMDTA as their Visa sponsor should receive an email from NIMDTA approximately 12 weeks before their CCT date.

This email will ask if you wish to apply to NIMDTA for a 4 month extension after you CCT to allow you more time to find a Visa sponsor.

We are very keen to keep you in Northern Ireland as part of our workforce.
