The Minister for the Interior, Hon Mark Owen Woyongo, has announced that Ghana is in the process of finalizing its first ever national migration policy to facilitate and guide the management of Ghana’s internal and international migratory flows.


At the first interaction and orientation meeting of the GIS Board with the Management and Regional Commanders in Accra, the Minister said the policy when it is finalised would enhance national development as well as sub- regional and global interest.

He said as the lead agency in the management of migration in Ghana, the GIS is expected to steer the implementation of this policy.

He told the gathering that the Ministry of the Interior is seriously leading and facilitating the agenda to re-enact the Immigration Service Act, 1989 (PNDC Law 226) to make GIS more relevant and adequately strengthened to discharge its mandates. He affirmed that Cabinet has already approved the draft bill in that regard and would soon be laid before parliament for further action.


Hon. Woyongo assured that the Border Patrol Unit (BPU) of the Service in the coming months would see drastic transformation; this is because the Interior Ministry is in talks with appropriate dealers to procure weapons, communication equipment, and vehicles for the Unit.


He however stressed that the agencies under his Ministry have been urged to pursue Public Private Partnership (PPP) to facilitate the realization of some critical infrastructural gaps since the national purse is already over-stretched. As a result, the GIS has been given the go head to source for funds from private organizations to facilitate the construction of its Headquarters Building.
