The Ghana Mission in the United States of America (USA) has expressed hope that the US government will soon lift the visa restrictions sanction placed on a section of Ghanaian travelers to the States.
According to Ghana’s Ambassador to the US, Ambassador Baffour Adjei-Bawuah, his hope is derived from the robust mechanisms underway to deal with illegal migration to the States.
Speaking on Asempa FM’s Ekosii Sen show, Dr Adjei-Bawuah indicated that there were a lot of engagements going on with the US authorities regarding the sanctions.
“We at the embassy have knowledge to develop the kind of approach which should make it possible for the US to lift soon the sanction that they have put on us and I do believe that the US will recognise this and do what is right and proper,” he said.
The US government in February 2019 imposed visa restrictions on Ghana which included suspension of issuance of all new visas for domestic employees of Ghanaian Diplomats hosted in the US.
