KIA updates Covid-19 guidelines following rise in China

2 Min Read

Following the recent spike in China, the Ghana Airports Company (GAC) has revised the Covid-19 guidelines for passengers at the Kotoka International Airport.

The Ghana Airports Company said in a news release that travelers from China would need to present authentic negative Covid-19 PCR test results obtained 48 hours before leaving the country.

“In addition, such passengers will be required to undergo mandatory Covid-19 testing on arrival at the Kotoka International Airport,” it noted.

The GAC indicated that this test will be done for passengers at no cost.

Again, vaccinated or unvaccinated passengers from other countries other than China will need to provide a negative PCR test and also undergo a mandatory test on arrival.

In addition “passengers may be randomly selected and offered test on arrival.”

Meanwhile, the Ghana Airports Company has cautioned against non-Ghanaian passengers providing a fake test, stating that they will be quarantined and returned to the point of embarkation at their own cost.

They also stated that “airlines that bring passengers to Kotoka International Airport who are not fully vaccinated or passengers originating their journey from China without a valid negative Covid-19 PCR test results 48 hours prior to the departure would be surcharged $3500.”
