The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has said that the visa-free regime for all foreign nationals traveling into Ghana starts December 1, 2023.

This is in line with the ‘December in Ghana’ initiative launched by the Ghana Tourism Authority (GTA) which aims at making travel to Ghana less stressful for visitors.

Deputy Foreign Affairs Minister, Ampratwum Sarpong, said that the move was to lessen the frustrations of the travelers.

“Anybody who wants to come to Ghana can take advantage,” he said.

He further explained that “December of late, it’s become a month of activity, big activity in the country and it’s a month that a lot of our compatriots living outside the country take advantage to come in and enjoy the Christmas festivities.”

The visa-free regime will last till the end of December, Mr Ampratwum said.

“Looking at the trend and the number of people over the years that have been coming into the country, there have been complaints of frustrations at the various missions abroad in getting visas on time to be able to get down here and have a good time.

“And being a responsive government, we’ve looked at it and we think one of the best things that we can do is to lessen the frustrations of their travel to their home base and make it possible for them to get down here and get their visas.

“Because if you arrive today, give and take, in about an hour, you should be able to go through the processes of getting your visa on arrival. So this is just for December,” Ampratwum Sarpong noted.
