  3. If fees have been paid electronically and the payment appears on the Nursing Council bank statement before 4 December 2006, the person will not be expected to pay the difference. In this regard, please check the rules of your own banking institution regarding the effective date for payments made electronically. Council will not make any exceptions in this regard since these rules form part of the electronic banking agreement between the client and the banking institution.

For examinations to be conducted prior to July 2007, the closing dates for applications all fall before 17 March 2007. To avoid ambiguity, the old fees will also apply to any late entries for examinations to be conducted prior to July 2007, even if payment is received after 17 March 2007.

  2. The fees to be charged for remarks will depend on the date on which the full payment for the remark is received. Where payment is received on 17 March 2007 or later, the remark fees will be charged at the increased rate.

In this regard, please check the rules of your own banking institution regarding the effective date for payments made electronically.
