Zimbabwe Clarifies On e-Passport Application, Expiry Of Current Passport

Zimbabwe Clarifies On e-Passport Application, Expiry Of Current Passport

Government Tuesday clarified the e-passport application process, adding that the current Zimbabwean passports will remain valid until they expire in December 2023.

The Home Affairs Ministry said the online application for passports was open for both normal and electronic passports. Said the ministry:

The normal passport application procedure is going on and non-biometric passports will work until they expire.

In line with the COVID-19 restrictions and your convenience, issuance of biometric or e-passports is only done online. Anyone can apply for a biometric passport whether your passport has expired or you have it or you have applied before as long as you are a Zimbabwean citizen.

The e-passport US$20 or $2 400 application fees have to be deposited with CBZ Holdings or First Capital Bank.

This was after the Zimbabwe Lawyers for Human Rights challenged a decision by the government to grant CBZ Holdings monopoly to collect the fees.

President Emmerson Mnangagwa launched the e-passport on December 14. An ordinary e-passport costs US$100 and an emergency one costs US$200.

Your statement,"Government Tuesday clarified the e-passport application process, adding that the current Zimbabwean passports will remain valid until they expire in December 2023" seems to refkect the same old government position regarding validity of current held passports which is confusing as opposed to clarifying; different to what other Newspapers e.g. Newsday have reported, thus, "GOVERNMENT yesterday clarified the e-passport application process, saying current Zimbabwean passports will remain valid until they expire." Which one is the correct statement??

Why can't they just replace our passports. Then for those who havent yet applied ndovobatwawo nema$100 ayo. Its very unfair to those who have already applied for theirs. 2023 is not far especially nemalockdown aya inoexpire no kushanda. Please help us. Mine was issued March 2020 and after a week ndacollecter kubva kwauya lockdown nanhasi haisati yashanda hameno ichashanda hre.LORD have MERCY on us!!!

AS LONG AS THEY ARE AVAILABLE FOR EVERY TOM AND DICKY, THERE IS NO PROBLEM.

PROVIDED THEY ARE GIVEN TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE APPLIED FOR THOSE

WE MIGHT FIGHT THE CORRUPTION THAT WAS BASED ON OUR OFFICES.

PLEASE TRY AND FOLLOW THE CORRUPTION BASED PERSONS IN OFFICES

IF THEY ARE STILL AVAILABLE, THEY WILL BE CAUGHT NOW.

HOW LONG DOES IT TAKE TO BE READY WHEN APPLIED THROUGH CBZ?.

THANKS
