Ghana’s would be removed from the United Kingdom (UK) government’s red list COVID-19 high-risk countries on Monday, October 11, 2021.
Ghana forms part of a list of 47 countries and territories to be taken off the list.
If Ghana is removed, it would make much easier for several people to travel abroad to a larger number of countries and territories.
Passengers returning to England from these destinations will no longer be required to enter hotel quarantine.
Disclosing this on Accra based Citi TV, UK High Commissioner to Ghana, Her Excellency Harriet Thompson, said:“There are different rules for people coming into the UK. We are really keen to open up international travel as quickly as possible and also safely. So we are changing all the rules. So now there is no amber and green list, there is a red list and the rest of the world. And as it was announced on [Thursday], there is no African country at all on that list.”
“For those countries whose citizens are not able to enter the UK, there are big changes to the vaccine certification. So again from Monday, the vaccine certificates issued in Ghana after vaccination will be recognized by the UK system which means no self-isolation, no pre-departure test, and no day-old test, so it will be much easier for persons from Ghana to enter the UK”, she added.
