Sad news for ZEP holders as they are excluded from the blanket waiver

We have received the disappointing confirmation that ZEP holders are not included in the newly extended blanket waiver.

The Department of Home Affairs extended its blanket waiver until 31 December 2023, allowing applicants of pending long-term visa and waiver applications to remain in South Africa or travel out of South Africa without being declared undesirable.

It is with the explanation that ZEP holders are already on their own dispensation programme until 30 June 2023, hence the exclusion from the blanket waiver.

The question remains - what if a waiver application has not been finalized by 30 June 2023 or such an application was denied with little time to spare? We guess time will tell.
