The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority is targeting to complete the modernisation of border posts by 2018, a process which will enhance efficiency.

Zimra Acting Commissioner, Tjiyapo Velempini said the modernisation process was almost complete with some of the technological facilities already functional.

He said Zimra had already installed non-intrusive inspection equipment (scanners) at ports of entry and exit to improve clearance.

The modernisation of the border posts will target the busy posts such as the Beit Bridge, Nyamapanda and Chirundu border posts which most of our trading partners use and this will stimulate trade in all the avenues.

In line with the modernisation of the border posts, Zimra has introduced an electronic registration and electronic filing process aimed at increasing efficiency for all stakeholders.

The modernisation process is being financed through public, private partnerships.
