In November 2021, Minister of Home Affairs Aaron Motsoaledi, announced that the Zimbabwean Exemption Permit (ZEP) Dispensation programme will terminate on 31 December 2022. ZEP holders in South Africa would have until this date to change to a mainstream visa, providing they qualify for these visas.
ZEP holders must ensure they comply with the requirements and provisions of the South African Immigration legislation. Unfortunately those who do not qualify for a mainstream visa will have to leave South Africa or be deported.
All the mainstream applications must be submitted, in person, at the VFS office in South Africa.
We urge ZEP holders, who did not start the visa process yet, to reach out to us on www.movingsouthimmigration.com, via telephone +27 73 535 7534 or email email@example.com to check your eligibility.
