President Akufo-Addo Announces Ambitious Plan for Visa-Free Access to All Africans in 2024

President Akufo-Addo has announced that the government is taking measures to enact a visa-free policy for all Africans this year.

Currently, only a handful of African nations, such as Rwanda, Seychelles, The Gambia, and Benin, allow entry without requiring visas for all their citizens.

The president emphasized the government’s dedication to realizing visa-free access for all Africans.

He made these remarks during the opening of the 2024 Africa Prosperity Dialogue under the theme, “Developing Prosperity in Africa: Produce, Add, Value and Trade.”

“Many of you had to acquire a visa to come to this event, we made a special arrangement for this conference, we reduced the visa acquisition fee by 50%, and we were thus able to receive your visa on arrival,” the president said.

“The government of Ghana is committed to ensuring visa-free for all Africans, for all Africans travelling into our country, and the process has begun to get the policy implemented this year,” Akufo-Addo added.
