US Imposes Visa Restrictions On Ghana

- February 01, 2019
Ghana has been imposed Visa restrictions by the United States, accusing the African country of not cooperating in accepting its citizens who have been deported from the United States.

The United States Secretary of the state, Mike Pompeo has ordered consular officers in Ghana to implement visa applicants, the Department of Homeland security (DHS) said in a statement.

"Without an appropriate response from Ghana, the scope of these sanctions may be expanded to a wider population.

Ghana has failed to live up to its obligations under international law to accept the return of its nationals ordered removed from the U.S

We hope the Ghanian government will work with us to reconcile these deficiencies quickly, said DHS Secretary Kirstjen Nielsen.
