Ghana will start issuing visas to citizens of African Union member states. Anyone with a passport from an African Union nation will get a visa, which could be for up to 30 days. The initiative is to bridge the gap between African citizens. The president said: "We will be allowing citizens of AU member states to…obtain visas on arrival…and experience what our country has to offer. This…should stimulate air travel, trade, investment and tourism."

The African Union said Ghana's efforts would help to bring Africa closer and reduce barriers. It said: "Many other African countries will follow suit, in the interest of achieving an integrated, prosperous and peaceful Africa." More countries need to follow Ghana's example. Only a quarter of African countries offer visas to other Africans. It is easier for U.S. citizens to travel within Africa than it is for Africans to visit each other's countries.
