What is a “Student member”?

Students who are not regarded as dependants on their parent’s medical aid fund, but apply for membership with the Fund, should pay monthly contributions in advance for the whole year once accepted.

Please note: The South African Immigration Amendment Act (Act 19 of 2004) has certain implications for Namibian students applying for a study permit in the Republic of South Africa. The current arrangement between the Republic of South African and Namibian authorities, are that all Namibians applying for a study permit need to show proof of membership with a medical aid fund, registered in the Republic of South Africa. You are advised to first confirm with the university if this prerequisite is enforced before applying for medical aid within the Republic of South Africa.
