SA to report to UNHCR on Zimbabweans

2010-10-03 23:29

Johannesburg - SA will on Monday give a report to the UN's High Commissioner for Refugees on progress documenting illegal Zimbabweans, the home affairs department said.

Minister Nkosazana Dlamini-Zuma would brief the UNHCR in Geneva, Switzerland, spokesperson Ronnie Mamoepa said in a statement on Sunday.

"The process of documenting Zimbabweans living in South Africa began on 20 September and includes the extension of amnesty to those Zimbabweans who return South African identity documents and permits acquired fraudulently.

"South Africa has been inspired by the huge turnout of Zimbabweans living in South Africa who wish to regularise their stay in South Africa by applying for valid study, work or business permits."

Dlamini-Zuma would also brief the UNHCR on South Africa's efforts to review its immigration policy to separate economic migrants from asylum seekers.
