Article from - Micel Schnehage

The South African government formally lifted visa restrictions on Zimbabweans visiting South Africa on Monday.

People from that country will now be able to enter South Africa for three months without a visa.

Home Affairs Minister Nosiviwe Mapisa-Nqakula and her Zimbabwean counterparts Kembo Mohadi and Giles Mutsekwa signed a memorandum of understanding in northern Johannesburg.

The minister said the decision to lift visa restrictions would be reviewed in a year's time.

She also agreed to accepting the Zimbabwean departure permit or border pass as a legitimate travel document.
Mapisa-Nqakula said she hoped the lifting of these travel restrictions would support efforts to rebuild Zimbabwe's shattered economy.

She added that the two countries were hopeful these measures would strengthen efforts to fight human trafficking, smuggling and other cross-border crimes.
