US Embassy in Ghana suspends visa appointments to prevent spread of COVID-19

The US Embassy Accra in Ghana has suspended routine immigrant and nonimmigrant visa appointments, effective March 17, 2020, following the outbreak of the novel coronavirus in Ghana.

“We will resume routine Visa services as soon as possible, but are unable to provide a date at this time,” a statement from the Embassy read.

According to the U.S. Embassy, this directive comes on the back of the government’s call to observe prescribed social distancing and personal hygiene measures to prevent community spread and “not in response to any known or suspected COVID-19 exposure at any of our facilities”.

However, emergency services for U.S. Citizens in Ghana will continue, said the statement.
