KIA was reopened to international flights on Tuesday, September 1, 2020.

And speaking to the media at the Information Ministry on Thursday, September 3, 2020, Director General of GHS, Dr. Patrick Kuma-Aboagye, says “So far no positive case has been found.”

According to him, the ultimate aim of the Ghanaian Government is that people arrive in Ghana negative “and truly negative.”

Passengers arriving through the KIA are supposed to provide a negative PCR test result and also undergo covid-19 test at a cost of $150.
