Government lifts temporary travel ban on South Korea

With effect from February 4, 2022, the government of Ghana has withdrawn the interim travel restriction imposed on any non-Ghanaian visitors entering from South Korea.

Following an increase in COVID-19 infections, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs restricted travelers from Malta, South Korea, and Israel from entering the nation in December 2021.

The embargo on South Korea was supposed to last 14 days, but the administration decided to extend it.

The restriction had been lifted, according to the latest communiqué from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs.

Dr. Anthony Nsiah-Asare, the President’s Health Advisor, defended the government’s decision to impose travel restrictions on specific countries in the aftermath of COVID-19 outbreaks.

The restriction, according to Dr. Nsiah-Asare, is in accordance with the government’s attempts to prevent a new outbreak of the virus in the country.

He said it was reasonable for the government to impose a travel ban because other countries had done so.

“If you travel to other nations, you will find that some people have been placed on high alert. Lockdown has been imposed in some countries. All we’re saying is that if you’re coming to Ghana from somewhere else, make sure you’re up to date on your vaccinations.”
