The Ghana Health Service has relaxed its guidelines Ghanaians coming into the country, allowing for Ghanaians who have not been vaccinated or those who have been partially vaccinated and ensuring that foreign residents no longer have to provide evidence of full vaccination before entry.
The news was made public by the Director General of the Ghana Health Service, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, during a press briefing in Accra, according to reports from myjoyonline.
With this latest development, all such persons will be “exempted from the requirement of full vaccination before traveling to Ghana.”
This goes contrary to earlier directives issued by the Ghana Health Service ahead of the Christmas holidays in 2021, which was a desperate attempt by the Government to ensure that the country is not swept away by a fourth wave of the corona virus pandemic.
The directives issued by the Health Service ahead of the Christmas holidays indicated that persons 18 years and above and arriving into the country were mandated to provide evidence of full vaccination as part of requirements for entry.
Adding that persons who defaulted in the directive will have to take the vaccination at the Kotoka International Airport on arrival.
