Zim Halts Issuing Of Ordinary Passports

There had been a demand for passports following government’s slash of passport fees from US$140 to US$50, with desperate passport seekers sleeping in queues.

Workers at the Gwanda Passport office told Radio VOP that they had been instructed to process emergency passports only. Those who applied for ordinary passports would have to top up their fees by US$200.

South Africa has threatened to deport undocumented Zimbabweans by year end.
