Ghana and South Africa are to meet next month to conclude negotiations on a visa waiver between them.

South Africa’s High Commissioner to Ghana, Lulu Xingwana, said his country’s Head of Immigration, will be in Ghana to conclude the agreement.

Ms Xingwana, told the Daily Graphic during a South African Tourism roadshow in Accra, that there are issues concerning reciprocity between the two countries regarding waiver, which is expected to be finalised at the next meeting.

The roadshow was to facilitate business networking between South African players in the tourism sector and Ghanaian tour operators.

South Africa’s Department of Home Affairs in July, added Ghana to a list of seven countries whose nationals will be permitted to enter the country visa-free.

The South African envoy said the agreement has the potential to increase foreign direct investment and tourism inflows between the two countries.
