Ghana To Lift Visa Requirement For Africans

President Nana Akufo-Addo of Ghana

Ghana is about to implement a policy to grant visa-free entry to all Africans visiting the country by the end of 2024.

The country’s President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo announced this on Thursday.

According to PM News, Akufo-Addo pledged while opening the 2024 Africa Prosperity Dialogue in Ghana’s Eastern Region.

He said, the gesture was in line with the objectives of the African Continental Free Trade Area (AfCFTA) to create a seamless single market on the continent to drive economic growth, job creation, and poverty eradication.

“The government of Ghana is committed to ensuring visa-free entry for all Africans traveling to our country,” Akufo-Addo said.

He noted that such policies are needed throughout the continent to ensure the free movement of people, goods, and services to use trade as a catalyst for economic transformation in Africa.

Akufo-Addo also reportedly suggested that the implementation of AfCFTA should be more representative, benefiting different strata of African society.

The Africa Prosperity Dialogue, organized by the AfCFTA Secretariat and the African Prosperity Network, a think tank, serves as an annual platform for Africa’s leadership to engage, forge partnerships, and commit to achieving the African Union’s Agenda 2063. – PM
