Ghana: No Fines But Covid Vaccination Still Mandatory

Contrary to what we had understood from the Ghana Port Health memo reproduced in our circular of 14 January, GPH have clarified that although the imposition of fines has been suspended until further notice, Covid-19 vaccination is still mandatory for all seafarers on board vessels calling in Ghana’s ports or carrying out operations at anchorage which require the presence of Ghanaian aboard.

The situation is therefore unchanged since our our update of 10 January 2022.

We apologise for our erroneous update of 14 January and for any confusion which it may have caused.
