Background

In a significant development, the High Commission of the Republic of South Africa has officially announced a bilateral agreement between the South African and Ghanaian governments regarding visa exemptions for ordinary passport holders.

As of November 1, 2023, this agreement is set to grant Ghanaian ordinary passport holders the privilege of visa exemption for a cumulative period of ninety days per annum.

Under this arrangement, ordinary passport holders from Ghana will be permitted to stay in the Republic of South Africa for up to ninety days in any given twelve-month period. This noteworthy policy shift is expected to facilitate travel and promote cultural and economic exchanges between the two nations.

However, in the event that the ninety-day limit is exhausted within the stipulated twelve-month period, ordinary passport holders from Ghana will be required to apply for a visa to gain entry into the Republic of South Africa. This additional measure is intended to ensure adherence to immigration regulations and to manage the flow of travelers effectively.

The implementation of this visa exemption policy marks a positive step in strengthening diplomatic and economic ties between South Africa and Ghana, allowing for greater ease of travel and engagement for ordinary passport holders. Both nations anticipate the mutual benefits of increased tourism, business activities, and cultural exchanges facilitated by this agreement.

This development is set to encourage further people-to-people connections and enhance cooperation in various fields, demonstrating the commitment of South Africa and Ghana to fostering positive relations and facilitating seamless travel between their citizens.
