Ghana ‘seriously’ considering visa-free entry for all Africans, people of African descent in diaspora – Ayorkor Botchwey

Ghana is “seriously” considering allowing all Africans and people of African descent in the diaspora, to fly in visa-free, Foreign Affairs Minister Ayorkor Botchwey has said.

Currently Rwanda, Seychelles, The Gambia and Benin are the only African countries that provide visa-free entry for all African citizens.

Ms Botchwey told local media the Ghanaian government will soon make an announcement in that regard.

“It is something that we are seriously thinking about because I know that Rwanda has announced, Kenya is also looking into it. We are also going to be looking into it seriously for our fellow Africans and also those of African descent in the diaspora”, she said.

“We want to be able to attract them — Year of Return, Beyond The Return — and they come in their numbers to Ghana because now Ghana has become that pilgrimage country for them to touch base with the motherland”, Ms Botchwey noted.

“And, so, it is something that we are seriously thinking about and we are actually on the drawing board looking at it. It is not just the Ministry of Foreign Affairs but the Interior, Tourism, we are all looking at it and we will come out very soon”, she hinted at during an interview with Accra-based Asaase Radio.
