After Banning Nigerians, UAE Signs Visa-free Agreement With Ghana by Derende(m): 8:21pm On Aug 08, 2021
The United Arab Emirates has entered into a visa-free agreement with the Ghanaian government, following an approval by the parliament of the West African nation on Thursday.

This comes a month after the Nigeria passport was ranked worse than ever under President Muhammadu Buhari’s regime by London-based global citizenship and residency advisory firm, Henley and Partners.

Peoples Gazette learnt the agreement between governments of Ghana and the UAE was signed on Thursday, August 5, 2021, following the adoption of a Memorandum of Understanding by both parties.

The Gazette learnt the MOU is restricted to holders of diplomatic and other official passports whose background and conduct are in line with the public and state security apparatus.

Ghanaian news medium, Graphic Online, reports that the agreement approved was on mutual exemption of entry visa requirements in respect of diplomatic, service/special, and ordinary passport holders.

The news outlet stated that the agreement was executed on November 18, 2019, to waive the visa requirements for holders of both countries’ passports before entry any of the territories, where they are only allowed to stay for a maximum of ninety days.

Bryan Acheampong, Chairman of Ghana’s parliamentary committee on foreign affairs, noted that Ghana has had fruitful co-operation with the UAE and is willing to deepen the relationship with Ghanaian citizens and officials of the United Arab Emirates.

“The agreement, which constitutes a comprehensive framework on visa regimes for both countries accordingly made provisions to cover the diplomatic, service, and ordinary passports for nationals of both countries,” Graphic Online credited Mr Acheampong to have said.

Explaining further, Mr Acheampong said; “the Agreement did not impose obligations on the two parties to admit people who are considered to be of questionable character into their territories, neither did it impose any financial obligation on the two parties while neither country will obtain direct financial gains from their implementation.”

Nigeria does not have any visa-free arrangement with the UAE despite a high volume of Nigerian travellers to the Arabian desert.


In July, Nigeria’s passport performed worst than that of the 2020 ranking.

Henley and Partners’ new passport index report ranked Nigeria’s passport 101 out of 199 countries, dropping six places from its 2020, with the country’s passport holders having access to just 46 countries visa-free, The Gazette reported.

The Gazette in July, reported that authorities of the UAE prohibited their nationals from visiting Nigeria and some other countries as the country firms up its control of exposure to the raging variant of the Coronavirus.

I don’t think it is fair to blame the government for this one. The guys who travel to other countries and fraud, drug deal, and commit crimes are to blame. There are still guys on this site that see Hush as a hero. The world is watching.

The unfortunate ediots that crossed to the other side won't behave themselves.

If they aren't pushing drugs, they are trafficking girls. If they aren't trafficking girls, they are scamming anything and everything.

Even the ones here have turned fraud to something else.

The only good news you can get from this country is that Buhari built a railway line.

Nonsense

It was reported that President Buhari had spent over 5 Trillion Naira on security in 6 years. Ask yourself what has been achieved. One of the achievements would have been the complete annihilation of "cultists", so they have failed!

Several however keep in mind that the UAE is known for human rights abuses and unfavorable business environment, just like Ghana and Nigeria. Dubai didn’t restrict business dealings with Nigeria; this has nothing to do with relations between the countries. Instead, this has everything to do with citizens of other countries entering their country. Ghanaians can now enter Dubai visa free however Nigerians cannot and it has everything to do with the way Nigerians have behaved in both Dubai and other countries.

Go and sleep! Must you people blame everything on government? Was it Buhari that asked them to go kill or push drugs in UAE? Some of you reason below standard.

Is hush puppy (so many peoples role model) in APC?

PDP, APC, ABC..all have the same denominator. Nigerian greed and selfishness.

The tendency to drain a resource to the end at the first opportunity with consideration for others coming after him.

Corruption is a natural bye product of human greed. Meaning it exist in every corner and country in this world.

The problem with Nigerian Corruption is the 'acceptabilty and normalisation' to which EVERY Nigerian who has been unfortunate to grow in this country has become infected with.

It doesn't matter who is in govt. As long as it is a Nigerian from this generation, the outcome will always be the same.

Thats the reason you are being banned from almost every country.

Its our massive tolerance and propensity to cut conners and beat a process to make gain (something Babangida realised. We dont hate Corruption, we simply want to be part of it. For it to flow)

Its our penchant for celebrating wealth irrespective of the source

Its our ridiculous societal pressure/ need to opperess and not to be financially oppressed.

There is no hope for this generation. The Only hope are the innocent kids yet to be tainted with the fuckery called Nigeria
