The management of the Kotoka International Airport (KIA) has revised the Coronavirus-induced safety protocols for passengers travelling to Ghana amidst the COVID-19 outbreak.
The new safety protocols, which take effect from Monday, November 16, 2020, require passengers arriving in Ghana to pay the $150 for the PCR test online at https://myfrontierhealthcare.com/Home/Ghana.

Also, passengers must possess a COVID-19 negative PCR test from an accredited laboratory in the country of origin and airlines who bring in travellers who have not paid for the test online would be fined $3,500 per passenger.
As of November 11, 2020, 56,123 tests have been conducted on passengers who arrived in Ghana via the KIA, out of which 190 tested positive.
