South Africa – Ghana visa-free policy is being “finalised” – South African Minister says as Prez. Ramaphosa apologises for xenophobic attacks
Modalities for the visa-free travel between South Africa and Ghana are being finalised for the policy to take effect, South African Minister of State at the Office of the South African Presidency, Hon. Jeffrey Thamsanqa Radebe has said.
The minister made this revelation when delivering an official apology to the president of Ghana on behalf of the South African president, H.E Cyril Ramaphosa, regarding the latest xenophobic attacks in South Africa which claimed the lives of some foreign nationals.
He told President Akufo-Addo that modalities for the waiving of visa requirements for nationals of the two countries were being finalised.
The South African Department of Home Affairs announced earlier this year that Ghana had been added to the list of countries that could travel to South Africa without visas. Though South Africa Home Affairs Minister said the policy doesn’t require Ghana to reciprocate, latest comments from his office expect the policy to be a mutual one before its implementation.
