The government of Ghana has imposed a temporary ban on travellers from countries that have recorded 200 or more cases of coronavirus. This ban is however not applicable to Ghanaian citizens or foreigners with valid Ghanaian resident permits.

The travel ban was announced by Information Minister, Kojo Oppong Nkrumah at a press briefing in Accra on Sunday, March 15, 2020.

Mr Oppong Nkrumah also revealed that the government of Ghana is at this moment discouraging any form of travel to the country.

Speaking to the media Kojo said, “All travels to Ghana strongly discouraged. Non-Ghanaian citizens who within the last 14 days have travelled to countries with more than 200 confirmed #COVID-19 cases barred from Ghana. Mandatory 14-day self-quarantine upon entry to Ghana”.

The new measures have been taken after Ghana announced that it has recorded 4 more cases of the deadly coronavirus, bringing the official number of cases to six in the West African nation.
