Ghana starts visa-on-landing strategy for AU member states

The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) said that outside
nationals from the African Union (AU) part states can now go to Ghana and be
issued with visas on entry.
Francis Palmdeti, Head of Open Undertakings of the GIS, said
on Monday in an announcement that Ghana has kick-began the new visa approach.
He said the game plan would be steered at the Kotoka Global
Airplane terminal in Accra for three months, and from that point reached out to
all other passage purposes of the nation.
“All AU nationals influenced by this approach who touch
base in the nation must have a visa, legitimate for no less than three months,
from the date of passage; they should have an arrival ticket or confirmation of
forward travel.

“Voyagers must show confirmation of adequate finances
and evidence of convenience before they are conceded visas,” he said.
Mr. Palmdeti said the visa-on-landing choice by the Ghanaian
government was in satisfaction of a determination embraced at the AU Official
Chamber meeting held not long ago in Addis Ababa.
He said that the determination stipulates that AU Part
States ought to audit their interior and outside security substances trying to
execute components taking into account the issuing of visas on entry for
nationals of part states, with the likelihood of a 30-day remain.

Mr. Palmdeti said Ghana turned into the principal AU part
state to embrace such an arrangement and has gotten honor from the AU Commission
for the intense stride.
