In anticipation of higher traveller volumes ahead of elections in Zimbabwe, the Department of Home Affairs has announced the deployment of additional staff to the Beitbridge Port of Entry.
37 officials have been deployed to Beitbridge from 26 July to 03 August 2018 to beef up existing human resource capacity. The announcement of additional staff deployments comes within the context of the determination and commitment of the Department to ensure delivery of efficient and professional immigration services as part of our responsibility to facilitate the smooth movement of people, goods and services during this period.
To this end, we have opened extra workstations same as during peak periods to release pressure on the main operations. In addition, a senior manager from the Head Office will be deployed over the weekend to provide strategic guidance.
Said Minister Malusi Gigaba: “We have put in place these measures to affirm our resolve to contribute towards free and fair elections in Zimbabwe”.
