US Visa Appointments Postponed



The United States Embassy in Ghana has announced the suspension of scheduled visa appointments.

According to a post from the Embassy, this action was necessitated by the increasing number in COVID-19 infection in Ghana.

This, the Embassy said is in the greatest consideration for the health of its staff and applicants.

“U.S Embassy Accra regrets the difficulties that the change in appointment date brings and we understand the hardship that these actions have for those hoping to travel soon to the United States.”

” Please understand that these decisions are not taken lightly and it is our sincere hope that we can resume routine operations as soon as conditions allow” , the post said.

Studies have found that Ghana is experiencing the UK and South African COVID-19 variants. This is accounting for the sharp increase and faster rate of infection in the country. Ghana has seven hundred and sixty five newly recorded cases with a total of six thousand four hundred and eleven active cases.
