Ghana and South Africa have signed a visa waiver agreement for holders of ordinary passports, making it easier and more affordable for youth from both countries to travel and do business between them.
The agreement, which takes effect on November 1, 2023, allows travellers from both countries to transit through, depart from, and stay in the territory of the other country for a cumulative period of up to 90 days without a visa, as long as they are not working.
This is a significant development for both countries, as it will boost tourism, trade, and cultural exchange between them. It will also make it easier for family and friends to visit each other.
Ghana and South Africa have strong historical and cultural ties. Both countries are members of the African Union and the Commonwealth of Nations. They also share a common commitment to democracy and economic development.
The visa waiver agreement is a sign of the growing friendship and cooperation between Ghana and South Africa. It is also a testament to the importance that both countries place on youth development.
It will also allow them to connect with their peers in other countries and learn about different cultures.
Ghana and South Africa are two of the most dynamic and entrepreneurial economies in Africa. The visa waiver agreement will help to further strengthen the economic ties between the two countries and create new opportunities for nationals on both sides.
