Ghana Visa Waiver Agreement

Holders of diplomatic, official or service passports issued to nationals of Brazil, China, Cuba, Germany, Iran, Namibia, South Africa and holders of diplomatic passports issued to Turkish nationals do not require a visa to Ghana. Holness said the foreign ministers of both countries had been tasked with negotiating and concluding the agreement. “This week, my parliamentary committee will look at two points,” MP Annoh-Dompreh wrote on Twitter on Monday, who is also chair of the Foreign Affairs Committee of the Parliament of the Republic of Ghana. “The first step is to examine the modalities and modalities of the establishment of the secretariat of the African Continental Free Trade Agreement in Accra. Secondly, we will consider visa-free agreements with 9 countries … namely Malta, Venezuela, Jamaica, the United Arab Emirates, Qatar, Suriname, Guyana, St. Christopher – Nevis and St. Vincent -Grenadines,” said the Ghanaian MP. Most visitors to the United States enter the country as tourists. With the introduction of visa exemption for nationals of 27 designated countries, it is now possible for many travellers to enter the United States without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program (WVP). Visa-free travel is also available for qualified travellers entering the United States for business, travel or transit.

In accordance with the 2015 Terrorist Travel Ampving and Prevention Programme, these are: who have travelled or travelled to Iran, Iraq, in North Korea, Libya, Somalia, Sudan, Syria or Yemen on or after March 1, 2011 (with a few exceptions for diplomatic or military trips serving a VWP country) OR travellers from Iran, Iraq, North Korea, Sudan and/or Syria are no longer allowed to travel with the VWP.

Diplomatic relations between Africa and the Caribbean are increasingly close. Ghana is considering facilitating visa-free travel with nine countries such as Qatar, the United Arab Emirates and several Caribbean countries. Citizens of certain countries, including British nationals with the right of residence, may enter the United States without a visa for periods of business, vacation or transit without extension. Visitors can arrive at U.S. maritime or air borders on a participating commercial airline. Registration forms are available at the port of entry or from a participating airline or cruise line. Visa exemption is also available by car or any other carrier.

Visitors wishing to use the visa waiver program must have machine-readable passports. On 26 March 2019, Malta and Ghana signed an agreement on visa exemption for holders of diplomatic and official passports. The agreement, which waives the visa requirement only for passport holders, will enter into force after both parties (Malta and Ghana) have notified the completion of the necessary national judicial procedures. This process is not yet complete. This restriction does not apply to vwP travellers, whose presence in one of these countries was to perform military service in the armed forces of a VWP country or to be a full-time employee of the government of a vwp country.
