Kazembe Launches E-Passport Services In Bulawayo

The Minister of Home Affairs and Cultural Heritage, Kazembe Kazembe, on Wednesday, launched and opened the Bulawayo e-passport Bio-enrolment centre for issuance of passports.

Speaking at the Bulawayo launch, Kazembe said the decentralisation of the issuance of passports will speed up the processing of travel documents in the country. Said Kazembe:

Plans are, however, afoot to decentralise e-passport enrolment services to all districts in our drive to take services to the people in line with the dictates of devolution.

… The setting up of infrastructure to establish the e-passport system in Chitungwiza is at an advanced stage of completion.

Kazembe also said the Civil Registry Department will be embarking on a nationwide mobile registration exercise from 1 April to 30 September 2022.

The exercise will be focusing mainly on the issuance of births, deaths and national identity documents.

Meanwhile, the Civil Registry Department has said its Harare passport office will be open on Saturdays to cater for people applying for the newly-introduced electronic passport (e-passport).

In a statement, the Department said the operating hours will be between 8 AM and 3 PM.
