  • Zimbabweans importing vehicles through borders must now obtain number plates from the Central Vehicle Registry before leaving ports of entry or transit sheds.
  • Only diplomats and registered car dealers can leave with temporary plates.
  • The new rule aims to reduce customs fraud involving misrepresentation and vehicle smuggling.
  • Zimra is implementing the regulation at Beitbridge and Plumtree borders, requiring specific documentation to register vehicles.
  • The change comes after an increase in cases of vehicle smuggling and fraudulent registration.
