Ghana has kickstarted their new visa policy, according to Francis Palmdeti,
Head of Public Affairs of the Ghana Immigration Service all foreign
nationals from the African Union (AU) member states will be issued visa
on arrival when they travel to Ghana.
In a statement released yesterday [July 11] Palmdeti said,
All AU nationals affected by this policy who arrive in
the country must have a passport, valid for at least three months, from
the date of entry; they must have a return ticket or evidence of onward
travel. Travellers must show evidence of sufficient funds and proof of
accommodation before they are granted visas.
The new policy will kick off at the Kotoka International Airport in
Accra for three months, and thereafter extended to all other entry
points of the country.
Palmdeti says the visa-on-arrival decision by the Ghanaian government
was in fulfilment of a resolution adopted at the AU Executive Council
meeting held earlier this year in Addis Ababa.
