You can now get your lost Matric certificate within 48 hours

On Thursday, 30 March, Umalusi held a webinar titled ‘Innovatively replacing your lost or damaged certificate issued by Umalusi’ to officially launch the newly implemented Online Application System for Replacement Certificates.

In a statement, Umalusi said candidates can access the system from anywhere (home or office) via a cellphone or personal computer to apply directly to Umalusi to replace their lost or damaged certificates.

“The new system has significantly reduced the turnaround time and costs involved in replacing a lost or damaged certificate. At a cost of R137.00 a candidate can collect a replacement certificate from Umalusi within 2 workings days of the application. Alternatively, a candidate can pay R202.00 (R137.00 for the certificate and R65.00 for courier fees)to have the certificate sent within 7 working  days to their chosen physical address anywhere within the  borders of South Africa,” said Umalusi’s Senior Manager: Public Relations and Communications, Biki Lepota.

The webinar was attended by officials from education stakeholder organisation in South Africa, Botswana Examinations Council (BEC) and Kenya National Examinations Council (KNEC).
