You are ready to travel again.
Ghana is calling to you, But there is still the Coronavirus to contend with. Ghana responded very quickly and effectively when the Pandemic began and put safety measures in place long before some other countries did.
Those safety measures and more are still in place and all visitors will need to comply with the rules that Ghana has in place to keep everyone safe. Akwaaba is still the word of the day and visitors are welcome!
For visitors traveling from the United States to Ghana, here is a little information you can definitely use.
Yellow Fever Inoculation is required for entry into Ghana.
What is Yellow Fever?
Yellow fever is a disease caused by yet another virus! It is transmitted by those annoyingly pesky mosquitoes. Ghana is just one of many countries in Africa and South America with a risk of yellow fever transmission. Hence, the vaccine is required. One thing to be mindful of is that there was a recent 2 year global shortage of the vaccine, so I would say that the sooner you are able to get one, the better.
Where to obtain the shots you need:
- Your Physician – if he or she does not give the shots, they may have some recommendations
- Travel Clinics
- Passport Health.
COVID-19 Test and Vaccine (as of today, April 5, 2021. This could change or be updated by the Ghanaian government in the future):
According to the Ghana Embassy in DC.,Travellers who have been fully vaccinated are NOT EXEMPTED from the required PCR-testing before travelling.
