An EU diplomat said the bloc was ending measures against 20 entities and 51 people – including the Justice and Foreign ministers.
However, restrictions on President Robert Mugabe continue.
The EU lifted 35 sanctions last year, noting the power-sharing government was making “significant progress” in addressing its economic crisis.
President Mugabe and more than 100 key members of his inner circle remain the subject of restrictions, which include asset freezes and bans on travelling to European countries.
EU remains concerned that pledges made after violent elections in 2008, including promises to reform the police and security services, were not being honoured.
The EU diplomat said the travel bans on Justice minister Patrick Chinamasa and Foreign minister Simbarashe Mumbengegwi were lifted so they could visit Brussels for talks, but their assets remained frozen.
The US-based campaign group Human Rights Watch earlier called on the EU not to lift its sanctions.
