Remittance study on Zimbabwe migrant workers in South Africa

August 19, 2011    

This 2010 study is concerned with the remittance of funds to Zimbabwe from South Africa and assesses the suitability of the 90-day casual worker’s permit issued to Zimbabweans as a tool for financial inclusion with a focus on the remittance of funds to Zimbabwe.

Whilst the 90-day permit ceased to be in use after 2010 with the introduction of the new work permit, Zimbabweans still potentially face barriers to financial inclusion including de facto practices and misalignment with regulation.
