The applicants are to provide the following information:
Full name as it appears on your passport
Citizenship (only for Legal Permanent Residents of the U.S.)
Date of birth
Date of passport issuance and expiration
Email address and contact phone number
“Please do not call the Embassy to confirm receipt of your email; we will contact you if a flight is arranged and you are confirmed for a seat on one of these flights. In the event these flights are full and there is still demand, we will make every effort to arrange additional flights.
“Unless you receive an email from U.S Embassy Accra confirming your flight, please do not come to the Embassy or go to the airport in Accra,” the State Department said.
The arrangements follow Ghana’s closure of all its air, land and sea borders on Sunday in response to the coronavirus pandemic.
In addition to the closure, President Nana Akufo-Addo also announced in a live telecast that all arrivals would be mandatorily quarantined.
