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.
