APD 2024: Ghana to implement visa-free policy this year

The government has initiated steps towards implementing a visa-free policy for all Africans this year, according to President Akufo-Addo.

At present, only a few African countries, including Rwanda, Seychelles, The Gambia, and Benin, offer visa-free entry for all citizens of the continent.

President Akufo-Addo said government’s commitment to achieving visa-free access for all Africans.

He made these remarks during the opening of the 2024 Africa Prosperity Dialogue under the theme, “Developing Prosperity in Africa: Produce, Add, Value and Trade.”

“Many of you had to acquire a visa to come to this event, we made a special arrangement for this conference, we reduced the visa acquisition fee by 50%, and we were thus able to receive your visa on arrival,” the president said.

“The government of Ghana is committed to ensuring visa-free for all Africans, for all Africans travelling into our country, and the process has begun to get the policy implemented this year,” Akufo-Addo added.
