All the Zimbabwean immigration permits
Zimbabwe’s economy has fluctuated over the years, but it has not deterred possible investors. Even individuals with special skills and qualifications are much needed in the country. If you are thinking of setting up your business, or even working temporarily in Zimbabwe, then you will need to apply for the correct Zimbabwean immigration permits in order to do so. At Visafrican we facilitate all of these.
Temporary employment permit
There is only one work permit in Zimbabwe; this is the temporary employment permit. The process of applying and obtaining the permit is not intricate, but it is tricky.
- We will prepare the application in South Africa and then courier the final documentation of the application to our partner in Zimbabwe.
- The application will be submitted at the Immigration Authorities in Harare. The estimate application processing time takes up to 4 weeks.
- When the work permit is approved the applicant must make their way to Zimbabwe on their business visa to collect the work permit endorsement.
If the applicant is a South African citizen and needs to go to Zimbabwe for a short period of time, they can enter and stay in the country for 30 days without a visa. The same applies to South Africans, who are entering Zimbabwe to collect their work permits.
If the applicant applies for the work permit via our partner entity in Zimbabwe, the cost will be more. Monthly fees will be incurred for management services of payroll, payslips, professional indemnity, personal liability insurance, social securities and taxes.
The applicant can also choose to open a personal bank account in Zimbabwe or simply continue to make use of their expat bank accounts.
If AFGRI decides to apply for the work permit under a body nominated in Zimbabwe by the applicant or the Ministry of Agriculture decides to directly employ the applicant, we can still facilitate payroll and insurance.
