How Long Does It Take To Unlock NSFAS Wallet?
The process of unlocking your NSFAS wallet can take up to 6 weeks. However, this isn’t a fixed timeframe as it depends on the advisor’s availability and how fast they can process your application.
You will be notified by email when the funds are available in your account. This means that you should check your email regularly so that you don’t miss the notification sent out by NSFAS.
Once the funds have been released to you and activated, remember to create a unique PIN number for yourself so that no-one else can use them for any reason whatsoever! You also need to set up a user name and password when activating your account, which is necessary if you want access all of its features such as making payments or viewing reports from within MyNSFAS portal itself..
