305 American citizens in Ghana have been repatriated by the U.S. Embassy in the midst of the Coronavirus pandemic.
The exercise took place on Wednesday, 25th March 2020, despite the closure of Ghana’s borders as announced by President Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo on March 22.
The Embassy in a health alert on its website stated that it received adequate support from the Government of Ghana for the exercise, a breach of the travel protocol.
“On March 25, 2020, with the strong support of the Government of Ghana, the U.S. Embassy in Accra facilitated the return to the United States of 305 American citizens from Ghana to the United States.”
The Embassy assured it will continue to work with the U.S. government agencies in the United States and the Ghana government to provide the needed assistance to American citizens in the country.
“If and when additional flights become available, the Embassy will provide instructions to American citizens in Ghana through the Smart Traveller Enrollment Program (STEP), the U.S. Embassy website and social media platforms on Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram.” The alert further stated.
