Zim to work with SA over Permits

images (2)THE Government has started engaging South African authorities over permits for Zimbabweans which are set to expire in December.

At least 200 000 Zimbabweans in South Africa face deportation when their special dispensation permits expire on December 31.

Zimbabwe’s Consular General, Mr Batiraishe Henry Mukonoweshuro yesterday told State Media that the embassy was seized with the matter, saying they were waiting for South Africa’s Minister of Home Affairs Professor Hlengiwe Mkhize to finalise consultations.

“We have engaged the South African government over the issue of Zimbabwe Special Permits (ZSP), which are expiring in less than six months time.

“We are however, still waiting for Minister Mkhize to make her pronouncements in due course on the way forward,” he said.

Mr Mukonoweshuro urged ZSP holders to be patient as the embassy continues to engage South African authorities on the issue. Get the Zimborderguide book for detailed guidelines on all travel and immigration requirements  Click here to get yours now!
