Foreign architects are permitted to register and practice in Zimbabwe.
The following documentation is required:
- recognised diploma in architecture
- being over 21 years of age and resident in Zimbabwe
- professional practice examination and two years of continuous practical experience in the office of a registered architect in Zimbabwe or elsewhere
Two years internship may not be necessary if the Architects Council considers that the applicants work is of sufficient variety and of a satisfactory nature and standard for the purposes of registration as an architect.
There is a temporary registration for foreign architects which is renewable annually. The temporary registration for non-resident architects does not require proof of residence nor the professional practice examination. Temporary registered architects are recommended to establish a joint venture with a local architect, although they are not required to do so.
