Sorting out your Zimbabwe work permit can be a time-consuming process. On top of all your other considerations when you’re planning on working in Zimbabwe, you have to ensure that your permit will be ready in enough time for the start of your contract. A number of additional factors can influence the time it takes you to get your work permit, including the specific country you’re applying for the permit in, how long you plan to stay and your nationality. Learning about the different things you have to consider when you’re applying for an Zimbabwe work permit helps to ensure that you’re prepared in time.
How Long Should I Leave for Zimbabwe Work Permit Processing?
It’s difficult to determine how long it will take you to get your Zimbabwe work permit. You normally apply at an embassy in your home country, and their different turnaround times can differ. 4-6 weeks will probably be plenty of time to arrange the permit, but leaving it until the last minute isn’t advised. If you’re applying over a holiday or during a particularly busy period, for example, the permit can take longer to arrange. Processing times vary in Zimbabwe so it is best to ask us what the current timeframe is. The best advice is to start arranging your Zimbabwe work permit as soon as you decide to take a job offer. Getting the ball rolling as soon as possible greatly improves the chances that you’ll have your permit in ample time for your departure.
Does Sponsorship Affect Zimbabwe Work Permit Processing Time?
The process of getting sponsored can be pretty time-consuming in itself. Some employers won’t sponsor work permits, and there are some that expect you to already have a permit – despite the fact that an employer has to sponsor you. Sponsorship confirms that you have a position in the country, to support your application. Contractors who’ll be working for multiple companies during their stay will have an even more difficult time, because most employers only sponsor you for the length of your contract. This can be a headache to sort out, and you might have to update your permit every time you get a new position.
