Ghana is the latest country to be granted a visa-free status by the South African government.

South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs has added Ghana to a list of seven countries whose nationals will be

permitted to enter South Africa visa-free.

 

Nigeria was not included despite the large volume of trade between the two countries. South Africa announced in

September 2018, that it was finalising a number of visa waiver agreements with other countries including Ghana to

allow travellers to enter the country without a visa.

 

According to the Minister of Home Affairs, Aaron Motsoaledi, citizens of the seven countries are able to enter South

Africa without a visa.

“Tourism will soar if we relax visa requirements for entry into South Africa. We know that Tourism is very important

for job creation,” he said today at a briefing in South Africa.

“Out of the 193 countries who are member states of the United Nations, the Department has granted visa-free

status to 75 countries.

 

Of these 16 are in our continent and are SADC members and 59 are from all over the world.”
