Filling of landing cards to be a thing of the past – Ghana vice president announces

As part of his digitalisation efforts to speed up service delivery in the country, the vice president of Ghana, Mahamudu Bawumia, has said that Ghana will soon abolish the filling of landing cards by air passengers arriving in the country.


In a message shared on Facebook, Bawumia said the new process that will be operational in March 2023 will drastically reduce the time spent by passengers using the Kotoka International Aiport.

The vice president added that e-gates will also be operational for use by Ghanaians in possession of Ghanacards.

Below is the full post by vice president Mahamudu Bawumia:

Dear friends,

I held a productive meeting on improving the competitiveness of Kotoka International Airport (KIA) with key stakeholders, including the Minister for Public Enterprises, Minister for Transport and his deputy, the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL), Ghana Immigration Service, National Security and Ministry of Interior.


It was decided, inter alia, that airline passengers traveling to Ghana will, from 31st March 2023, no longer be required to fill out landing cards. This is because the same information can be obtained electronically.

Furthermore, the Ministry of Interior and the Ghana Immigration Service have been directed to ensure that E-Gates will be operational at KIA this year for use by passengers using their Passports or Ghanacards.

In addition, the processes that passengers go through at KIA are also going to be streamlined to drastically reduce the time spent by passengers and avoid duplication. The new process flow is expected to be operational by 31st March, 2023.

God bless our homeland Ghana.
