The Ghanian government has now issued a press release of their new COVID-19 Protocols for international travellers.

On the 9th December the Ghanian government issued a press release which will restrict international travellers from entering Ghana as of the 12th December.

 

The press release reads;

” In November 2020, 168 cases were detected compared to 241 cases in November 2021, an increase of over 40%. We have since been recording an average of 20 positive cases a day at KIA.”

“For these positive cases, there is a significant difference in the percentage of COVID-19 infection based on vaccination status recorded at KIA. Available data from KIA, show that a COVID-19 positive person is three times more likely to be unvaccinated.”

The government now states that international travellers over the age of 18 must provide full evidence of their COVID-19 vaccine.

All unvaccinated Ghanaians and residents of Ghana who are currently outside the country and intend to return within 14 days from the midnight of 12th December 2021 are exempted. However, they would be vaccinated on arrival at the airport.
 
Definitions of what qualify as fully vaccinated are also provided with the government saying;

A person is said to be fully vaccinated when he/she has taken the full dose of vaccines approved and registered by the Food and Drugs Authority (FDA), Ghana.

  • You need two doses of AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna or Sputnik V to be declared as FullyVaccinated
  • One dose is required for Johnson and Johnson to be declared fully vaccinated.

All those planning to travel to Ghana this December are advised to go to www.ghs.gov.gh for more information and to contact their Ghanian embassy in their home country to double check what will be required of them to bring on their journey.
