“Our borders remain closed until further notice for human traffic ” – Nana Addo

The government’s directive on border closure has not changed despite the second phase of easing of restrictions imposed on the Ghanaians as a result of the coronavirus pandemic.

President Akufo-Addo On Sunday, while delivering his 14th address on Sunday, July 26 2020, stated that “our borders, by air, land and sea, remain closed until further notice for human traffic”.

Even though the entry points are to remain shut, evacuation of stranded Ghanaians in various countries will continue through special arrangements and by observing the stipulated rules of repatriation to prevent the import of the virus into the country.

“However, given that there are Ghana residents stranded abroad, special dispensation will continue to be given for the evacuation of our nationals and residents back to Ghana, where they will be subjected to the mandatory quarantine and safety protocols,” said Akufo-Addo.

Equally, goods, supplies and cargo have not been affected by the directive, as they are to be allowed in and out of the country.
