Export Facilitation

Reserve Bank Exchange Control requires that all exports from Zimbabwe be declared on Form CD1 through the Banks who raised such documentation in a system called CEPECS. All exporters are thus required to make a once-off registration with one of the Bank by providing information required on the Registration Form for Exporters.

Once exports have been declared on the Forms CD1 and shipments made, the exporters are required to repatriate the export earnings into Zimbabwe within 90 days. Exporters who may face challenges in repatriating export proceeds within the aforementioned time frame may submit applications for extended periods.

Exporters are highly encouraged to familiarize themselves with a Guideline to Formalities (for Exporters).
