The Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) has, in a circular, announced that it is giving members of the public who have cars that haven’t properly cleared customs till the end of the month to do so.
ZIMRA’s statement on car customs clearance reads as follows:
Following the encouraging and positive responses to Public Notice No. 105 of 2021, which was
published in the Sunday newspapers of 24 October 2021, the Zimbabwe Revenue Authority (ZIMRA) is
hereby extending the invitation to the public to regularize the clearance of any vehicles in their
possession, which were not properly cleared through customs.
Any member of the public in possession of such a vehicle or vehicles is required to approach the
nearest ZIMRA Regional Office to regularize the clearances. The specified vehicles include vehicles
that were fraudulently registered, smuggled into Zimbabwe, undervalued at the time of their
importation or brought in under temporary importation privileges or subject any other offence
relating to the importation of goods and vehicles under the customs legislation.
The timeframe to contact the ZIMRA offices has been extended to Monday 31 January 2022,
