NB: To qualify for the discount amounts, practitioners may be required to submit a certified copy of their identity document in order to confirm their age.
The annual fees for 2021 must be received by the SANC on or before 31 December
The amounts in the tables above all include 15% VAT.
2. RESTORATION FEES FOR 2021
The restoration fees for different categories applicable from 1 January 2021 are shown in the following table.
3. VOLUNTARY REMOVAL
A Nurse Practitioner who no longer wishes to practise in South Africa or who is unemployed, may request, in writing, a voluntary removal of his/her name from the register, by completing the form available from the SANC. If a voluntary removal is granted by the SANC, the nurse practitionerís name will be removed accordingly on the
31 December of the year in which the application is received. Once removed, the nurse practitioner will no longer be required to pay annual fees while he/she is removed from the register.
If the nurse practitioner requires reinstatement onto the register, he/she will, in addition to paying the reduced
restoration fee, be required to complete a Restoration Form. It must be noted that practising while not being registered is illegal.
4. CLOSING DATE FOR PAYMENT OF ANNUAL FEES
Please note that for the calendar year 2021, the closing date for the payment of annual fees is
31 December 2020. Payments must reach the SANC bank account on or before the closing
date. You are, therefore, urged not to leave payment for the last minute to avoid problems associated with making payments at year end.
Remember: Bank transfers from non-FNB banks may take up to 3 working days and you are therefore advised to pay well in advance to meet
31 December 2020 deadline.
5. OTHER FEES
Please note that other fees and fees payable by institutions will be applicable with effect from
01 January 2021.
6. PERSAL DEDUCTIONS
The signing of Resolution 3 of 2019 in September 2019 by the National Department of Health together with major trade unions in Public Health and Social Development Sectoral Bargaining Council (PHSDSBC) brought into effect the implementation of Persal deductions in 2020 for all employees falling under the scope of the PHSDSBC.
As a result of this agreement, affected nurse practitioners are urged not to pay the annual fees on their own as the employers are required to pay on their behalf in terms of Resolution 3 of 2019.
The SANC has made an eRegister facility available on the SANC website which can be utilised by employers to verify the registration status of all nurse practitioners in their employment. Employers are urged to utilise this facility in the absence of a physical Annual Practising Certificate (APC). Visit:
for more details.
8. COMMUNITY SERVICE PRACTITIONERS
Community Service Practitioners are not eligible to be issued with an APC and therefore should
NOT pay annual fees. They MUST pay a conversion fee on completion of their Community Service in order to be registered as Nurse Practitioners using the
REGFPRA registration fee code instead of ANLFEES (e.g. 12345678REGFPRA).
