About 245 Ghanaians who were deported from Kuwait have arrived at the Kotoka International Airport (KIA), Accra.
The 245 who arrived a short while ago at terminal 3 are currently undergoing arrival processes.
Information Minister Kojo Oppong Nkrumah revealed the news of their coming on Friday at a press conference in Accra.
“The Government of Kuwait has informed the Government of Ghana of an intention to deport some 245 Ghanaians who are currently in Kuwait illegally. The Government of Kuwait has further requested permission from the Government of Ghana to bring these persons into the Ghanaian jurisdiction on Saturday 30th May 2020.
“The Government of Ghana has subsequently granted a special permit for the admission of the said deportees to Ghana. This deportation is to be executed via a special charter flight arrangement at the cost of the Kuwaiti Government,” Oppong Nkrumah said.
He added that “the deportees will be mandatorily quarantined and tested for COVID-19 immediately upon arrival into Ghana. Deportees who test negative will remain in quarantine for a second test at the end of the 14-day quarantine period”.
