On 7 June 2023, the South African Department of Home Affairs (DHA) extended the deadline for Zimbabwe Exemption Permit (ZEP) holders to change to another immigration status until 31 December 2023. Employers that hire ZEP holders now have over six months to assist their impacted employees with converting to another immigration status and minimize the potential for work disruptions stemming from ZEP holders losing their immigration status in South Africa.

A Tax Alert prepared by EY's People Advisory Services group, and attached below, provides additional details.
