Open Letter To President Akufo-Addo: Concerns Raised On The |$150 Charges At Kotoka Airport
Dear President of the Republic of Ghana,
The Organisation of Ghanaians Abroad has received several complaints and concerns from Ghanaians living across the world on the recent guidelines on travel to Ghana in the context of the Covid-19 virus pandemic.
The concern is centered on the 150 USD charge that has to be paid for the COVID-19 test at the Airport in Accra. We find this charge exorbitant.
Taking into account that another test needs to be done 72 hours before departure, the 150 USD is too high especially when one travels with family members.
We, therefore, request that the fee of 150$ be reduced considerably to match the average fee in Ghanaian laboratories.
We hope that this request will meet your consideration.
Warm regards Mr. President
Osei Mensah Michael
President, Organisation of Ghanaians Abroad (OGHA)
The President of the Republic of Ghana
Jubilee House, Accra.
Director of DAOOP, Jubilee House, Accra.
