Most visitors to the United States enter the country as tourists. With the introduction of visa exemption for nationals of 27 designated countries, it is now possible for many travellers to enter the United States without a visa under the Visa Waiver Program (WVP). Visa-free travel is also available for qualified travellers entering the United States for business, travel or transit. “This ab/change in visa policy for Ghanaians? Always wrong,” tweeted the embassy in Ghana. The US television website reported that people from Ghana and Malawi could travel to the United States without a visa. Both countries are absent from the Foreign Ministry`s list of visa exemptions. There were many versions of this story that called different countries.

None of them were true and, in the case of Ghana, the U.S. Embassy warned people not to believe these reports. A visa is also not required for holders of a dual national card issued by Ghana. A pre-agreed visa can be withdrawn on arrival. This is not the first time that the United States has implemented similar visa restrictions for African countries. In 2017, Sierra Leone, Guinea and Eritrea adopted all visa restrictions because they do not fulfill orders to deport nationals. The restrictions related to tourist, business, exchange and student visas for government officials and their families. However, Eritrea was the most affected, with all its nationals allowed to abstain from applying for a B tourist visa. Visitors to the United States must be in possession of passports valid six months after their planned stay in the United States.
