The embassy of the Republic of Ghana in the United Emirates (UAE) has clarified viral news reports that Ghanaian passport holders can enter the country without visa.
In a statement on Monday, the embassy said although there is an agreement for Ghana passport holders to travel visa-free to the UAE, the processes for implementation has not been completed.
“It has come to the attention of the Embassy that some publications on the internet and on social media seem to suggest that Ghana passport holders can now travel visa-free to the United Arab Emirates following the ratification by the Parliament of Ghana of the Memorandum of Understanding on Mutual Exemption of Entry Visa Requirements between Ghana and the United Arab.
The explanation followed viral reports over the weekend that Ghanaians can now travel to the UAE with no visa requirements
“The Embassy urges the public to disregard all such publications and messages.
“Even though the agreement has been ratified by the Parliament of Ghana, the processes for its implementation have not been completed,” a press release from Ghana’s Embassy in Abu Dhabi has said.
“The Embassy will officially communicate any changes to the current entry visa regime between Ghana and the United Arab Emirates when the agreement comes into force”.
