Effective July 1, Ghanaians and Jamaicans can travel to and from each other’s country without a visa.

This was agreed to after presidents of the two countries held bilateral discussions in Kingston, Jamaica, on Saturday.

The meeting was part of President Akufo-Addo’s two-day official visit to the Caribbean country.

Stressing the importance of Ghana-Jamaica relations, the President said the two nations have an excellent opportunity to building on their strong ties, imposed by culture and history, so as to derive maximum economic value for their respective populations.

“We cannot have visas standing in the way of those relations, so the decision has been taken by my government that, as Ghanaians benefit from visa-free arrangements here in Jamaica, we are also going to provide visa-free arrangements for Jamaicans in Ghana,” he said.

He told the Jamaica Prime Minister, Andrew Holness, that the move will facilitate and also make it easier for Jamaicans to come to Ghana and join the ‘Year of Return.’

With the two leaders pledging to reactivate the Ghana-Jamaica Permanent Joint Commission for Co-operation, which has been dormant for some time, President Akufo-Addo explained that, when properly structured, the Commission will serve as a legal framework for the doing of business between the two countries.

“Now, it has come to the time to give teeth to those relations by making sure the various areas of engagement in education, tourism and cultural activity are specifically tied down.

“That is really my purpose of coming here, apart from a mission to sensitise you in Jamaica about an event that we are commemorating this year,” he added.

President Akufo-Addo’s visit forms part of a Caribbean tour to promote ‘The Year of Return, Ghana 2019’, which is a major landmark marketing campaign targeting the African – American and Diaspora Market to mark 400 years of the first enslaved African arriving in Jamestown Virginia.
