A released statement emanating from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration indicated that a restriction or ban have been imposed for all travellers coming from The International countries, Israel, South Korea and Malta.
According to the statement, a temporary ban has been placed on emerging travellers for some period in the country.
According to the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration, the temporary restrictions is expected to take effect on the 20th of December 2021, Monday for 14 days.
Furthermore, the Ministry discloses that any humanitarian cases or official duties or head officials in Israel country will, therefore, be granted permission into the state but apart from these excuses, permission cannot be granted.
The Ministry further explained that even with the above excuses, permission will have to be obtained from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration on the exceptional cases before permission can be granted.
“Permission would have to be obtained from the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration in exceptional cases,” it said.
However, it also reveals that a vaccine certificate from Malta has not been recognised by the government of Ghana hence cannot grant a permit with regards to that.
The Ministry said, “the Government of Ghana does not recognise any vaccine certificate from Malta”.
Therefore, the rationale behind the temporary cannot be comprehended as the statement does not disclose its reasons for the new development but it can therefore be related to the surfacing effects of the new Omicrona variant of the covid 19 in the country.
On that note, the Ministry for Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration admonished Ghanaians and the general public to take note of the announcement and to adhere to it Accordingly.
“To this end, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to state that the general public should take note of the above and adhere to it accordingly”, the statement concluded.
