The British High Commission in Ghana has dismissed reports is has issued a travel alert to its citizens coming to Ghana.

In a statement issued in Accra Friday, it asked the general public to treat such publication with the contempt it deserves.

Re:  Clarification on UK travel advice.

The British Government provides advice to British citizens travelling to countries across the world. Our aim is to provide practical, accurate and up to date information and advice to help British nationals make informed decisions about their safety and travel abroad.

Recent media stories in Ghana have wrongly suggested that the Foreign and Commonwealth Office  have issued a new warning with regard to terrorism in Ghana. We have not issued new advice.

Our travel advice for Ghana was last updated on 24 April and can be found athttps://www.gov.uk/foreign-travel-advice/ghana. This contains a section on terrorism – something that is standard practice for all travel advice. This advice is similar to that of other countries in the region and around the world.
