In an announcement released on Friday, February 1, 2019, the Ministry noted that they are concerned and frustrated at the decision of the pending visa sanction.

The Ministry in its announcement said that they have dependably collaborated and connected with the US experts in preparing and expulsion of Ghanaians from the US

“The Ministry wishes to express that these claims are unwarranted and the approvals forced on Ghana are with no support at all,” the announcement noted. The United States few days prior put a visa restriction on Ghana following Ghana’s supposed refusal to acknowledge extradited Ghanaians from the US. This, the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration claims is uncalled for since Ghana is following all course of action towards accepting the yet to be extradited Ghanaians illicitly living in the US. At first, US experts were accounted for to have educated the Ghanaian government office in Washington that around 7000 Ghanaians are anticipating expulsion. The 7000 Ghanaians living in various conditions of the US are said to be there wrongfully, in this way have been captured by US police, pending expulsion. In the announcement, the Ministry clarified that Ghana’s government office in Washington is making a move on the issue as per worldwide law.

“Ghana Embassy in Washington DC undertakes ID and check procedures to guarantee that all people reserved for deportation to Ghana are bonafide nationals of Ghana,” the announcement noted. In giving further subtleties, the Ministry unveiled that out of 28 applications got from US experts, 19 had been met by the Ghana international safe haven. Out of the 19 Ghanaian nationals to be ousted, the Ministry said they effectively issued making a trip declarations to 11 to head out back to Ghana. Be that as it may, a portion of the general population is have not been met because of uncertainty about their Ghanaian nationality, sick wellbeing and pending suit in US courts. The Ministry at that point guaranteed that it is evaluating the circumstance and would initiate fitting measures inside the setting of global law to determine the issue.
