This is that time of the year when people are making last minute frantic efforts to ship their cars to Zimbabwe. With t
he deadline of October 31, 2011 fast approaching, most people are not really clear with what is happening in Zimbabwe.
Sending vehicles to Zimbabwe has become a bit complicated as most customers do not know what to do. Let me clarify
Shipping to Zimbabwe will become difficulty for people after 31 oCTOBER, 2011.The Government of Zimbabwe through its TRANSPORT Minister Nicholas Goche, on 1 July 2011; announced an extension on the proposed ban of second hand cars into Zimbabwe.The original deadline was announced in September 2010. The idea was to ban the importation of second hand cars that are more than 5 years. The ban was originally set to be 31 March 2011. It was then extended to 31May 2011. But as consultations are still underway, the minister of Transport extended the deadline by a further 3 months to 31 October 2011. Mr Goche was quoted on 1st July;2011 saying:"I want to advise all concerned that no one will be barred from importing vehicles which are more than five-years-old until the consultative process is completed,”He went of further to say:"Therefore, the effective date restricting the importation of second-hand vehicles into the country remains October 31, by which date the consultative process would have been completed to which my office will give further direction.”
