Sean Mendis, an aviation expert, sees the UK government’s recent decision to recognize vaccine certificates given in Ghana for persons who have been completely vaccinated with AstraZeneca, Pfizer, Moderna, and Johnson & Johnson as a positive move for UK-Ghana trade.
On Thursday, October 7, the British High Commission in Accra tweeted the news, claiming that it was part of an effort to minimize the number of procedures for people visiting the UK.
This comes just weeks after the UK announced a tiered travel system in which fully vaccinated travellers from some countries were allowed to travel to the UK without having to isolate, while fully vaccinated travellers from other countries, such as Ghana, were still required to isolate once they arrived.
“This is a very positive thing for Ghana’s business community, especially when you look at the fact that the U.S. is also going to be removing the travel restrictions on transit through the UK. So I know that there are a lot of business people who have ties in both the UK and the U.S. and previously because of the travel bans in the U.S. would need to travel back to Ghana from the U.K. and spend time here before heading to the U.S.”, Sean Mendis stated.
Sean Mendis who disclosed this in an interview with Citi Business News noted that “Anything which opens up borders, anything which removes these artificial obstructions and is able to do so safely is a good thing for business, for travel, for airlines and for all stakeholders,” he added.
