The public has been asked by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration to ignore claims that Ghana and about 19 other nations have been subject to a visa block by the United Arab Emirates (UAE).
The UAE authorities reportedly issued an instant travel ban on Ghana and 19 other African nations last week, according to many media sources.
The Ministry of Foreign Affairs maintained in a statement that the abovementioned publication assigned no explanation for the prohibition, although social media sources have suggested that it is intended at preventing tourists from African nations who often overstay their visit visas in the UAE.
The Foreign Affairs Ministry states that because it “has not received any such contact from the UAE authorities, the report should be ignored.”
The UAE, according to the Ministry, has just modified its requirements for visitor and tourist visas and has not banned Ghana.
“The single-day single-entry visas have been put on hold, a 60-day multiple visa regime is currently in force and travellers to the UAE should secure a round-trip ticket and a hotel booking prior to the visa application,” the Ministry added in their statement.
“Travellers to the UAE should secure a round-trip ticket sods hotel booking prior to the visa application While assuring the general public to remain calm, the Ministry wishes to advise travelling Ghanaians to observe the new visa requirements put in place by the UAE” the statement concluded.
