Zimbabwean Embassy In South Africa Speaks On The Voluntary Repatriation Of Citizens During Lockdown

The Zimbabwean Embassy in South Africa says it is considering the voluntary repatriation of Zimbabweans citizens in the neighbouring country who are finding it difficult to make ends meet during the current lockdown.

In a statement released on April 13, the Embassy reached out to Zimbabwean citizens who are in dire straits and wish to return home. The statement read:

EMBASSY OF THE REPUBLIC OF ZIMBABWE

798 Merton Avenue ARCADIA 0083 PRETORIA Tel: (012) 342 5125 Fax: (012) 342 5126

PRETORIA REQUEST FOR INFORMATION FROM CITIZENS AND PERMANENT RESIDENTS OF ZIMBABWE IN THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA

The Embassy of the Republic of Zimbabwe in the Republic of South Africa in Pretoria and its Consulates in Cape Town and Johannesburg is reaching out to you members of the Zimbabwean Community in South Africa.

We want to thank you for observing the laws of the host country, more importantly, the regulations pertaining to movement and gatherings during the lockdown period.

We urge you to continue on the same trajectory and stay at home during the remainder of the lockdown period.

It has come to the attention of Embassy and Consulates that some members of our community are facing challenges which may make their continued stay in the country uncomfortable.

The Embassy wishes to advise members of the community that the Government of the Republic of South Africa allows for the voluntary, orderly repatriation of foreign nationals to their countries of origin during the lockdown period.

The Embassy is liaising with Head Office in Harare on the possibility of such an eventuality. Zimbabwe borders remain open to allow for the return of citizens and permanent residents even during the lockdown period.

Citizens and permanent residents who choose to exercise the option of returning to Zimbabwe during the lockdown period are expected to go into compulsory quarantine for a period of 21 days (three weeks).
