The Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has revised its Covid-19 policies at the Kotoka International Airport in response to the increase in Covid-19 cases (KIA).

The new regulations will go into force on Friday, January 6.

All travelers from China must provide a reliable negative Covid-19 PCR test result 48 hours before leaving the country of origin.

“In addition, upon arrival at Kotoka International Airport, such passengers will be subject to undertake obligatory Covid-19 testing at no cost.”

If they are partially or fully immunized, passengers traveling from countries other than China must have a valid negative Covid-19 PCR test result 48 hours prior to departure from the source country.

Additionally, they will undergo free, necessary testing.

“In addition to the foregoing, travellers may be chosen at random and administered a test upon arrival.”

A true negative Covid-19 PCT test result is required for airlines to carry Chinese passengers who have not received the appropriate immunizations.

If this is broken, airlines will be fined $3,500.

“Non-Ghanaians arriving at Kotoka International Airport with fraudulent or falsified vaccination certificates shall be confined and shall pay for their own return to the point of departure.”

However, all incoming travelers must go through a mandated temperature check, Yellow Fever Card verification, and Covid-19 vaccine certificate verification.
