All arriving passengers must not have any symptoms suggestive of COVID-19, including body temperature > 38°C.

They must carry a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from an accredited laboratory in their country of origin. The test should have been done not more than 72 hours before the scheduled departure from the country of origin.

Passengers will not be allowed to travel without the valid negative COVID-19 PCR test result.

All passengers must fill out the Ghana Health Form online before arrival.

For Ghanaian residents who depart Ghana and return within one week, the passengers will not be required to present a negative COVID-19 PCR test result from the country of departure, but they will be subject to mandatory COVID-19 PCR testing upon arrival in Ghana (this is applicable for direct flights i.e. Accra-Dubai-Accra). However passengers connecting on Emirates flights (for e.g. Accra- Dubai – London and return) will be required to hold a PCR test certificate as per Dubai Government regulations.

All passengers must wear a face mask appropriately (extending from the middle of the nasal bridge to halfway between the chin and the neck) upon arrival.

All passengers will be subject to a mandatory COVID-19 PCR test at the airport terminal at the cost of USD 150 to be borne by the passenger. Payment can be made online here. Any passenger who is unable to pay online will be required to make payment on arrival for the test.

Any passenger who refuses to pay to undergo the COVID-19 PCR test will be subjected to the following:

  • Passenger’s passport will be seized, and passenger handed over to State Security Agencies.
  • Passenger will be taken into a fourteen (14) day quarantine at a designated location at the passenger’s cost.

Children below 5 years old will not be required to undergo testing at the airport.

Passengers arriving under emergency circumstances such as diverted flights will not be required to undergo testing if they do not leave the airport or if they remain in transit such that they do not leave the hotel.

All persons testing positive will receive further clinical assessment and treatment.

All persons testing negative will be advised to continue to observe COVID-19 safety precautions following their arrival in Ghana.
