Ghana Passport holders cannot yet travel to United Arab Emirates, the West African country’s embassy in the Arab country has said.
A statement on Monday by Embassy of the Republic of Ghana in UAE said the agreement which will allow travelers with Ghanaian passport entrance into the Emirates with visa has not yet come into force.
The statement read: “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 on Entry Visa Requirements between Ghana and the United Arab Emirates.
“The Embassy urges the public to disregard all such publications and messages.”
The statement further read that: “Even though the agreement has been ratified by the Parliament of Ghana, the processes for its implementation have not been completed.”
The Embassy promised to officially communicate any changes to the current entry visa regime between Ghana and the United Arab Emirates when the agreement comes into force.
