DUBAI VISA FREE ENTRY FOR GHANA PASSPORT HOLDERS
■ Diplomatic or special passport holders of Ghana are now allowed to enter the United Arab Emirate (UAE) without visa. The agreement also stipulated visa free entry for official Ghana passports.
According to the memorandum of understanding (MOU) between both countries, Ghanaian ordinary passport holders will need to visit the UAE Embassy in Accra to be issued visa after payment of the stipulated fee.
But UAE citizens holding ordinary or service passport are allowed to gain visa on arrival in Ghana for a maximum stay period of 90 days.
However, there are restrictions relating to the free entry as the travelers cannot engage in any form of profession or study inside the host country, but they can obtain permission based on the laws of the country to undertake activities like work and school.
