The requirements for entering Ghana based upon COVID-19 vaccination status vary based upon the category that each traveller falls under. Updated requirements from official sources are as follows:

  • Fully vaccinated travelers into Ghana will no longer need to take a COVID-19 PCR test from the country of embarkation to allow them entry into the country through Kotoka International Airport, and will not be tested upon arrival.
  • Citizens and foreign residents in Ghana who are not fully vaccinated, would, however need to provide a negative COVID-19 PCR test result of not more than 48 hours, and will undergo an antigen test upon arrival at Kotoka International Airport, and will be provided vaccination there.
  • Non-Ghanaians 18 years and older who do not have residency status in the country (including ECOWAS residents) must provide evidence of full vaccination to the Airline prior to embarkation.
