South African Nursing Council – Year-end Closure


The South African Nursing Council offices will be closed for the year-end from Tuesday, 24 December 2019 at 12:00 midday, and re-open on Monday, 6 January 2020 at 08:00 am. Kindly note that on 24 December, for operational reasons the gates will be closed at 11: 00 am already.


Annual fees must be paid into the Council’s bank account on or before 31 December 2019 to avoid restoration fees – note that banks take up to three (3) days to clear payments and thus all bank electronic transfers need to be made by 24 December to ensure it reaches the SANC by 31 December 2019. 


The SANC banking details are: 

Name of bank: First National Bank
Account number : 514 211 86 193
Branch code : 253145
Reference : Person’s own SANC Reference Number followed by ANLFEES


Whilst waiting for the Annual Practising Certificate to be posted by the SANC, the employer can verify the registration status of the practitioner through the SANC website by logging into the SANC eRegister at To do this, they will require the practitioner’s SANC reference number or Identity Number (ID No).


We wish you all the best over the festive season and look forward to working with you in 2020.


Kind regards


Ms SA Mchunu
Registrar and CEO
