Zimbabweans to pay more for passports
Johannesburg, South Africa - 03 December 2007

Passport fees in Zimbabwe have been increased,
Zimbabwe's government mouthpiece Herald newspaper reported on Monday.

The fees were last reviewed in May this year.

According to a notice at the registrar-general's office in Harare, an ordinary
passport for an adult now costs Z$5-million, up from Z$150 000, the report said.

Ridiculous...... Bob's cashing in on all his peeps leaving the cuntry.

I recently terminated the employment of two Zimbo casual staff....Neither of them had passports or work permits (fook knows how they cross the border), remembering back a few years to when you could be fined up to 30k for not having the correct paper work.

They both "managed" to return with work permits two days later (without a passport?)....Now here's the catch.....
Both documents were a colour copy (incl.red date stamp) from a blank original. They simply printed the inviduals names etc on the copied form....So all seemed to be in order...well almost.

Then you turn the papers over to find that....hey!!!! these guys are identical twins!!!!...they even have the same fingerprints........lol BigLaugh

I told them to take a hike....only to find out later that they don't need to have a work permit in order to secure enployment in an untrained enviroment, now I don't know if that is true or not.....?? but anways..... These blokes tell me that the locals don't work and sit around in the squatter camps all day, then when pay day comes around so do the locals for their weekly "share" ....quite shocking! affraid
I am sure they were conned into paying for the forged docs aswell....well obviously, seeing as they were fake and may not have needed them in the first place....
