Home Affairs Minister Hlengiwe Mkhize says her department will respond to all Zimbabweans under the Zimbabwean Special Dispensation Permit (ZSP) as the deadline approaches.
The special dispensation was introduced in 2014 to allow Zimbabwean special permit holders to work, conduct business or study in South Africa for three years.
The deadline for the permits is December 31. All Zimbabweans with ZSP permits will be required to apply for standard study, work or business visas in order to remain in the country.
Those Zimbabweans who applied will be getting feedback.— Hlengiwe Mkhize, Minister of Home Affairs
