Congestion at Beitbridge Border with delays of up to 12 hours

Travelers are complaining of long delays at Beitbridge Border post.  Some are reporting delays of up to 12 hours on the South African side of the border. The Zimbabwe side is working fine.  Reports  indicate that the South African immigration officers are on a go slow, pending a strike.

South African based Zimbabweans are also flocking home for the festive season which has resulted in  an increase in traffic.

The assistant regional immigration officer in charge of Beitbridge Border Post, Mr Notius Tarisai, said

We have consolidated our festive period plan for all key players and as immigration we have enough staff to man all counters. This coming weekend we anticipate an increase in the number of travellers passing through the border and therefore as a precautionary measure we have dissolved and combined our shifts into two with each one having 28 officers and 12 security guards to man the gates and control queues.
