2019-20 annual registration invoices
Last year VIT issued annual registration invoices to all teachers by email, instead of mail, for the first time. Unfortunately this resulted in a significant number of teachers applying late, with some becoming unregistered. It also caused a large increase in the number of people contacting VIT for assistance and subsequent delays.
This year invoices will be issued by mail*, with invoice reminders sent via email and SMS, to provide the best opportunity for you to register by 30 September 2019. Invoices will start to arrive from mid-August, staggered over 2.5 weeks. Please note: you don't need to wait for your invoice to arrive, you can log into your MyVIT account and complete your registration tasks now.
*If your registration number starts with a 6, your invoice will be sent by email, with invoice reminders sent via email and SMS.
Also included with your invoice will be a factsheet PDF, 122.75 KB regarding legislative changes, due to commence 1 September 2019.
Note: If you completed your tasks prior to receiving your invoice, please disregard the invoice as it was generated before you made payment.
Complete your tasks before 30 September
Invoices and registration tasks are due by 30 September. If your annual fee payment has not been received by 30 September, a late processing fee will apply.
The following timeline provides you with some key dates and deadlines for completing your registration tasks.
27 September is a public holiday and 28 - 29 September is the weekend
For most teachers, the online process will take a matter of minutes, but if you need any assistance, we’re happy to help.
If you need to contact VIT about your registration tasks, remember that Friday 27 September is Grand Final eve public holiday and 28 - 29 September is the weekend, so we won’t be able to take your calls during this time. The online registration process will be accessible as normal on those days.
We receive a high volume of enquiries approaching the due date and delays may result, so it’s best to contact us sooner rather than later if you require any assistance.
To minimise your wait time, the best times to contact VIT are 9am - 11am and 2pm - 4pm.
Keep your details current
To ensure you receive all correspondence from VIT, it's important that you keep your details current through your MyVIT account.
Your new registration card will be issued after your annual registration tasks are completed and assessed. Cards may take up to 20 working days to arrive during the renewal period.
In response to feedback from the last renewal survey, VIT will issue registration cards that have reduced environmental impact, with the view to move to electronic cards in future.
Cessation of registration
If you are registered as a teacher and / or an early childhood teacher, and no longer wish to teach in one or both divisions, complete the cessation of registration form. Please note that once your registration has ceased, you will no longer be allowed to teach in Victoria.
