@...collinsfbi....Thank u so much for ur help. I eventually
went to Abuja to submit. I went on wed and returned the same day. Honestly Lagos embassy has a problem. Abuja is so organized and nice to all applicants and of course no SAQA saga. I'm glad it went well.
Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by KayVirtuoso: 9:36am On Jan 11, 2013
@ kosoblanca... Did you pay for medical cover (Momentum Health - Ingwe Option)? If you did then they would have sent you the confirmation(proof of payment and membership) through email which you should print out and that's what the embassy wants.

If you didn't include medical insurance, there is no way your application can be processed. You suppose to have confirmed this before you go ahead with submission. Thank God you were asked to bring additional docs and it wasn't an automatic rejection. If you have checked this thread earlier on, you wouldn't have made such mistake, at the same time, those guys who checked docs at the application centre before submission should have also alerted you but some of them don't work with the exact requirements given directly from the embassy. Get your medical insurance in time so that your application can be processed as soon as possible.

You will need to fulfill the requirements quoted below to be granted SA study permit
A duly completed application form signed by the applicant (BI-1738)
Passport valid for no less than 30 days after the expiry of intended visit
One (1) photograph of applicant.
Payment of the prescribed application fee
A vaccination certificate if applicant traveled through the yellow fever belt of Africa and South America
Proof of financial means (bank statements) which cover tuition fee and living expenses (There is no specific amount but be sure to have enough money to cover your tuition, living expenses and miscellaneous projects.
Medical cover in terms of a South African registered medical scheme
A medical radiological report (chest X-ray) or (skin TB test)
A police clearance certificate is required in respect of all applicants 18 years of age or older, in respect of all previous countries of residence for periods exceeding one year
A repatriation guarantee (110k in naija, almost 7k rand in SA)
Copy of a return air ticket if studies are less than 12 months
An official letter of provisional enrollment from the institution of learning concerned
Evidence of tuition payment/part payment depending on the school mode of payment
If student is under 21 years of age, the particulars of the person in the Republic who will act as the learner's guardian and confirmatory letter from such person, and proof of consent for the intended stay from both parents, or from the sole custody parent along with proof of sole custody.
If you intend to apply in Lagos Centre, you will need to include SAQA certificate or HESA exemption certificate but if you are applying at Abuja Centre, you don't need either of the two certificates

You need a health insurance cover that is registered or recognised in South Africa, but i don't know about the one issued by IGI. If they accept IGI medical insurance then you still need to include a medical radiological report (chest X-ray) or (skin TB test).

@...kosoblanca...Just like collinsfbi wrote you need a recognized south African medical cover. I would advise Momentum Health(Ingwe option) which most of us who have submitted used.
Re: General South Africa Visa Enquiries by kosoblanca: 6:28am On Jan 12, 2013
house how much is the momentum insurance and can some one in SA help me to do it faster.

kosoblanca: house how much is the momentum insurance and can some one in SA help me to do it faster.
@Kosoblanc

You don't need anybody to do it for u in SA. I was almost messed up by someone who wanted to do it for me last year.
Google Ingwe momentum student medical aid. The cost is R 3996 (N 80,000) for one year. Apply online , follow d instructions. Use d address of your department and expect the document emailed to u in 24 hours.
Use your Nigerian bank mastercard or visa card to pay online. I use GTB mastercard for transaction in Naija and SA.
Do this as soon as possible so that latest by Tuesday u
are good to go

collinsfbi: Yes! but for your travel itinerary, you do not need to use a paid ticket, just make sure your hotel booking is paid with confirmation.

It has to correspond with the official number of days you intend to declare in your visa application letter.
