All non-South African citizens, including students who are citizens from SADC countries, need to comply with the immigration regulation as determined by the Republic before registration. Medical cover is required at all times for the period of your visa validity.
Newcomers are advised to purchase medical coverage before coming to the country online. Please refrain from requesting third parties to purchase medical coverage for you due to fraudulent practices uncovered previously.
The medical scheme must be registered with the Medical Schemes Council of South Africa. https://www.medicalschemes.com/MedicalSchemes.aspx?flt=L
We recommend Momentum Health and CompCare, which offers medical cover tailored for a student life.
