The Home Affairs and Immigration Ministry will stop receiving applications for study permits Friday.
Its Public Relations officer, Sakeus Kadhikwa, told Nampa of the deadline in a recent telephonic interview.
Kadhikwa said the initial expiry date for permit applicants was the 28 February, which gave students a three month period since last December.
The ministry granted the extension to Friday after it learnt that most foreign students had not applied for their study permits for various reasons.
Kadhikwa said very few students applied for their study permits at three tertiary institutions, where the ministry deployed teams to fast-track the process.
He stressed that students will still have to pay the normal N$1 050 for primary and secondary school pupils N$1 395 to receive permits to study at tertiary institution.
He said the ministry is determined to assist students to have a smooth study permit application process.
