Ghana To Open Borders For 245 Deportees From Kuwait - MOI

For a long while now the government of Ghana has chosen to close its borders as part of measures being taken to help curb the coronavirus pandemic. Many celebrities and nationals as a result have had to stay in foreign lands for far too long unable to return home. That may however be changing soon as the Government of Ghana has said intends to give entrance to about 245 Ghanaians illegally staying in Kuwait to enter the country. The border closure however has recently seen an extension by government to the end of May 2020 and is being observed as such.

The announcement was made by the current Information Minister, Mr. Kojo Oppong Nkrumah at a special press briefing on Friday, May 22, 2020. He explained that government has accepted to grant the special permit and exemption to these individuals based on an official request made by the Kuwaiti Government. Kojo Oppong Clarified: “The Government of Kuwait has informed the Government of Ghana of an intention to deport some 245 Ghanaians who are currently in Kuwait illegally. The Government of Kuwait has further requested permission from the Government of Ghana to bring these persons into the Ghanaian jurisdiction on Saturday 23rd May 2020. The Government of Ghana has subsequently granted a special permit for the admission of the said deportees to Ghana. This deportation is to be executed via a special charter flight arrangement at the cost of the Kuwaiti Government,” the Minister stated.
