Ghana Introduces A Visa-On-Arrival System For Africans In The Diaspora

Ghana has declared a 46-day visa-on-arrival system for visitors, between December 1, 2023, to January 15, 2024.

This is essential for the Government’s aggressive 10-year ‘Beyond The Return‘ campaign, intended to empower Africans in the diaspora to explore and reconnect with Ghana.

The move lines up with the more extensive objective of positioning Ghana as a top destination for those of African plummet.

This according to the country’s Transport Ministry is to update systems to mirror this new game plan. That being said, travelers heading out to Ghana will be formally checked and will be asked of their entry visas prior to arriving.

Foreign Affairs Minister Ayorkor Botchwey recently hinted at Ghana’s serious consideration of allowing all Africans and people of African descent in the diaspora to enter the country visa-free.

Rwanda, Seychelles, The Gambia, and Benin are right now the only African countries offering without visa entry for every single African resident.

The transition to implement a visa-free entry for Africans lines up with Ghana’s more extensive endeavors to deepen connections with the diaspora and position itself as an open hub.

As the government explores this possibility, it reflects a strategic effort to boost tourism, enhance cultural exchange, and celebrate the shared heritage of people of African descent across the globe.
