My government will implement e-visa policy for visitors, says Bawumia

Bawumia, the NPP presidential candidate, plans to boost the tourism and creative arts sectors in Ghana by introducing an e-visa system for international visitors.

Mahamudu Bawumia, the vice-president and presidential candidate of the New Patriotic Party (NPP), has expressed his vision for boosting tourism and creative arts in Ghana.

As a part of this vision, he plans to expand upon the Year of Return, Beyond the Return, and the December culture in Ghana.

All of these initiatives have attracted an influx of African diaspora tourists, and some have even chosen to make Ghana their permanent home.

Addressing the nation at the University of Professional Studies, Accra (UPSA), Bawumia said, “My government will implement an e-visa policy for all international visitors to Ghana to enable visas to be obtained in minutes subject to security and criminal checks.”

This, according to Dr Bawumia, will boost the tourism sector and create opportunities for jobs in Ghana.

With the creative arts sector, Dr. Bawumia plans to launch a series of new initiatives including the introduction of digital and streaming platforms specifically designed for local artists.

He said, if elected, his government also plans to offer tax incentives aimed at supporting film producers and musicians, underlining the commitment to turning these industries into significant contributors to the nation’s economic growth.
