Ghanaians can now enter the United Arab Emirates (UAE) without hassle.

The parliament approved a Visa Waiver Agreement for diplomatic, service/special and ordinary passport holders.

The free entry approved for diplomatic and other official categories is because the holders’ conduct are usually in line with public and state security apparatus.
