    • Unfortunately, there isn’t a straightforward answer to how long it will take to move to the next step, as processing times can vary depending on several factors. Here are some possibilities:

      Possible reasons for the delay:

      System issues: NSFAS may be experiencing technical difficulties with their backend systems, causing delays in processing applications.

      SARS verification: NSFAS relies on information from SARS (South African Revenue Service) to verify financial eligibility. If there’s any discrepancy in the information or it takes longer for SARS to provide the necessary data, it can hold up your application.

      Missing documents: Double-check that you uploaded all the required documents correctly and in the accepted formats. Missing or incomplete documents can also stall your application.

      High volume of applications: During peak application periods, NSFAS receives a large number of applications, which can lead to longer processing times.

      What you can do:

      Contact NSFAS: The best way to get a clear update on your application is to contact NSFAS directly. You can call their toll-free number at 0800 672 277 or visit their website and submit a query through the “Contact Us” section.

      Check the NSFAS website:
      The NSFAS website provides regular updates on application processing times and common reasons for delays. You can find this information on the “Application Status” page.

      Monitor your application status regularly: Keep checking your application status on the myNsfas website for any changes. If your status hasn’t changed for several weeks, it might be worth contacting NSFAS again.

      Be patient: While it can be frustrating, try to be patient. Processing applications takes time, and there may be valid reasons for the delay.
