E-Gate system to automatically be used during immigration check ins and outs at KIA.

Vice President and flagbearer of the New Patriotic Party (NPP) Dr Mahamudu Bawumia, has indicated that the government will implement an E-Gate initiative at Kotoka International Airport (KIA), allowing travellers to enter without passing through immigration officers.

Bawumia made the statement during his campaign tour in Cape Coast on Monday, June 3, when addressing the clergy.

“In fact, before the end of this year if you arrive in Ghana at Kotoka Airport you don’t need to go to an immigration officer, we are putting together the E-gates, you put in your Ghana card it will open for you, and you pass and enter,” he said.
