GHANA: STOWAWAYS UPDATE
August 3, 2017
Our correspondents in Ghana have advised that the 2016 ban on the disembarkation of non-Ghanaian stowaways in the ports of Takoradi and Tema has been repealed. There have not been any official government circulars sent out to confirm this, but in July authorisation was granted to the local correspondent office to disembark and repatriate non-Ghanaian stowaways. This situation can change at short notice and often depends on the individual circumstances of each case, so Members are always advised to seek up to date information and advice from the local correspondents.
