The office of the South African Nursing Council will be closed for the year-end from Friday, 23 December 2022 at 12:00 midday, and re-open on Tuesday, 03 January 2023 at 08:00. Kindly note that on 23 December 2022, for operational reasons the gates will be closed at 11: 00 already.


Annual fees must be paid into the Council’s bank account on or before 31 December 2022 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 23 December 2022 to ensure it reaches the SANC by 31 December 2022.

Whilst waiting for the Annual Practising Certificate to be distributed 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 holiday season, please stay safe and we look forward to working with you in 2023.


Kind regards
