1099 - 05/16 - Disembarkation of Stowaways banned in both Tema and Takoradi - Ghana
The Association has been recently advised of a ban to disembark stowaways in both Tema and Tokaradi ports, Ghana.
Budd Ghana advises that Takoradi Port Authority has now decided to follow the example of Tema and ban the disembarkation of non-Ghanaian stowaways in its port, rather than inflicting the US$ 1,000.00 fine for each stowaway disembarked that was announced to local ship agents on 30 April 2016.
As a result, it officially is no longer possible to disembark non-Ghanaian stowaways in either Takoradi or Tema.
