VFS Global, an entity serving as the visa application center for South Africa, UAE, Jordan and some other Schengen states invalidated the said visa-free entry policy for Ghanaian passport holders – Monte Oz Live can boldly confirm. A customer service agent at VFS Global (South Africa section) earlier this morning (12.07.2019) on phone revealed that, Ghanaians still need a visa to enter the republic of South Africa for any kind of travel purpose, for they have no information about the trending visa-free benefits granted to Ghanaian passport holders on the 10th of July, 2019.
“We have no information from the South African high commission in Ghana concerning the Visa-Free policy, so every Ghanaian traveling to South Africa must apply for a short or long stay visa until further notice from the high commission” – The VFS Global Agent said to Monte OZ on phone upon calling to confirm the newly proclaim Visa-Free entry for Ghanaians.
