Ghana’s land, sea borders reopen today

    President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo Addo has  announced the easing of various restrictions including reopening the country’s land and sea borders as well as the no more negative PCR test for fully vaccinated travellers via the Kotoka International Airport.

    This takes   effect on Monday, 28 March 2022.

    The country’s land and sea borders were closed in March 2020 due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

    The closure affected trade between Ghana and their  neighboring countries.

    Announcing the lifting of restrictions imposed on the country, as part of measures to fight the COVID-19 Pandemic on Sunday, 27 March 2022, President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo said: “As from tomorrow, Monday, 28th March, all land and sea borders will be opened. Fully vaccinated travelers will be allowed entry through the land and sea borders without a negative PCR test result from the country of origin. Citizens and foreign residents in Ghana, who are not fully vaccinated, will have to produce a negative 48-hour PCR test result, and will be offered vaccination on arrival.”

    President Akufo-Addo also urged Ghanaians to work together with the government to ensure the recovery of the economy from the effects of the COVID-19 pandemic.

    “Fellow Ghanaians, it has been a difficult two (2) years for all of us, and we are seeing light at the end of a very long tunnel. I appeal to all of us to live responsibly, protect ourselves at all times, and do everything we can to stay safe, as we lift these restrictions.

    “Now is the time for all of us to join hands, work hard, and help put our nation back onto the path of progress and prosperity, as we resume full production and increase productivity.”
