South African Home Affairs Department has reported that the department still has over 3 000 Zimbabwe Exemption Permits outcomes that have not been collected by applicants.

In a circulating message, the department said all those that have applied and did not get feedback are kindly requested to take their VFS receipts and valid passports to the VFS office to collect their outcomes.

The cutoff date for all collections is the end of July and thereafter the outcomes will be sent back to Home Affairs for a certain period before being destroyed.

The opening of the new Zimbabwean Exemption Permit (ZEP) was announced on 8 September 2017 following the expiry of the Zimbabwean Special Permit (ZSP). The application process for the ZEP project started on 15 September 2017. It is meant to regularize the stay of Zimbabwean nationals in South Africa for work, study or legal business.

A total of 180 188 Zimbabweans applied for the ZEP permit.
