Travellers to Ghana will no longer be required to present a negative PCR test result, neither would they be made to undergo a mandatory antigen test upon arrival at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) provided they are fully vaccinated.
Land and sea borders are also now fully opened for cross-country travel. These were contained in President Akufo-Addo’s latest update on measures taken against spread of Coronavirus on March 27.
“From Monday, 28th March, fully vaccinated travelers into Ghana will not take PCR tests from the country of embarkation to allow them entry into the country through the KIA, and will not be tested on arrival,” the President said.
Citizens and foreign residents in Ghana, who are not fully vaccinated, would however, need to provide a negative PCR test result of not more that 48-hours, will undergo an antigen test upon arrival at KIA, and will be offered vaccination there.
President Akufo-Addo also announced that events centres could now operate at full capacity.
“All in-person activities, such as those that take place in churches, mosques, conferences, workshops, private parties and events, cinemas and theatres may resume at full capacity.’’
In addition, outdoor events such as sporting activities, funerals are also allowed to go on at full capacity.
Mandatory wearing of face masks has also been scrapped.
