Ghana Airports Company Launches Hotline For Travellers To Report Extortion

Kotoka International Airport

Last Wednesday, we reported that a South African national had accused immigration officials at the Kotoka International Airport of extorting money from her.

The Business and Financial Times also reported that some immigration officers ‘pocket’ visa on arrival cash leading to revenue leakages.

A South African national who arrived in Ghana on October 24, 2019, was greeted with the unprofessional activities by some airport immigration officers at the Kotoka Internal Airport, Terminal 3.

She was forced to pay cash even when she insisted to make payment with her visa card.

“I told them I don’t have cash so I want to swipe my visa card to make payment; they said ‘no’, I should go and withdraw money from the ATM.”
