Ghana has imposed a travel ban on travelers from Malta while travelers from Israel and South Korea will have to contend with temporary bans.

The temporary ban imposed on Israel and South Korea is for a period of 14 days, starting today, December 20.

“To this end, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration wishes to state that the general public should take not of the above and adhere to it accordingly,” it said.
