Ghana-Ivory Coast land border reopens since its closure in 2020

Ghana-Ivory Coast land border reopens since its closure in 2020

Ivory Coast’s government has officially reopened its land borders, which had been closed to travelers from Ghana since March 2020 due to the coronavirus pandemic.

According to Moses Akakpo, the Western Region Public Relations Officer of the Ghana Immigration Service, who confirmed the news to Nhyiraba Paa Kwesi Simpson, the host of Connect FM’s Omanbapa morning show, the development will allow free flow of travelers between the two countries.

“We are all aware that that side of our border has remained closed since the Coronavirus outbreak.”

“It should be remembered that in March 2022, our president ordered the reopening of our side of the border, but our brothers in Ivory Coast refused to open their side.”

“I can confirm to you and your listeners that our brothers in Ivory Coast have now opened their side, and people with intact documents who want to travel can do so without any restrictions,” he said.
He warned travelers to avoid taking illegal routes because the law will not be kind to them if they are caught.

“Those who have used illegal travel methods should be warned that they will not be spared if caught.” “Once they have genuine documents, our officers at the Elubo border will assist them in traveling without difficulty,” he added.
