Zimbabweans living abroad can now apply for birth certificates for their children born on foreign soil through the country’s embassies, Registrar-General Mr Clemence Masango, has said.

Mr Masango told journalists yesterday that his office no longer requires parents of such children to come home to process the documents.

He said the department had also slashed birth certificate processing fees for such cases from $50 to $2, payable using the multi-currency system for children above the age of six.

For children under six years, the registration was free, he said.
