According to the Germany-based news outlet, one reason for the ban is that many who arrive on visit visas end up overstaying in the country illegally while working without legalizing their stay.

This comes merely a month after Nigeria’s foreign ministry revealed in one of the statements that Nigerians under the age of forty will no longer be issued tourist visas to the United Arab Emirates (UAE) as the Emirati “introduced new visa rules and norms which has stopped administering tourist visas to persons under the age of forty years, besides and in exclusion for those applying for family visas.”

Ghana and other African countries have been barred from travelling to Dubai before.

Emirates Airlines of United Arab Emirates (UAE) announced on December 28, 2021, that eight African countries will not be accepted to travel to or through Dubai until further notice due to the spread of the Omicron Covid-19 variant.

The countries included: Ghana, Angola, Guinea, Kenya, Tanzania, Uganda, Cote d’Ivoire and Ethiopia.
