Passengers who arrived in the country will no longer be required to fill landing cards at the Kotoka International Airport from 31st March, the Vice President Mahamudu Bawumia has said.
In addition, the Ministry of Interior and the Ghana Immigration Service have been directed to ensure that E-Gates will be operational at KIA this year for use by passengers using their Passports or Ghana-cards.
It follows a productive meeting on improving the competitiveness of Kotoka International Airport (KIA) with key stakeholders convened by the Vice President.
In a Facebook post on Thursday (9 February) Bawumia said the processes that passengers go through at KIA are also going to be streamlined to drastically reduce the time spent by passengers and avoid duplication.
“I held a productive meeting on improving the competitiveness of Kotoka International Airport (KIA) with key stakeholders, including the Minister for Public Enterprises, Minister for Transport and his deputy, the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), Ghana Immigration Service, National Security and Ministry of Interior.”
“It was decided, that airline passengers traveling to Ghana will, from 31st March 2023, no longer be required to fill out landing cards. This is because the same information can be obtained electronically,” Bawumia posted on Facebook.
