The closing date for almost 200 000 Zimbabweans living and working in SA to apply for a Zimbabwe Exemption Permit (ZEP) has been extended to 31 January, notes a Weekend Argus report. ‘Due to the large number of ZSP (Zimbabwe Special Permit) holders who have completed the online applications thus far, the department has extended the closing date for the submission of supporting documents and biometrics to 31 January 2018. Therefore, people must present themselves to VFS (visa facilitation services) offices until this date,’ Home Affairs DG Mkuseli Apleni said. He added that by the end of September next year Home Affairs would have completed the ZEP project, including finalising adjudications and issuing the new permits.
