The Ghanaians, legal residents in the European country, were left stranded in Ghana after the borders were closed to prevent the importation of coronavirus.




But, on Monday, the German Ambassador to Ghana, Christoph Retzlaff, confirmed the departure of the Ghanaians in a tweet.

The aircraft arrived in Accra from Riga International Airport in Latvia. Travellers were subjected to strict baggage standards of one check-in baggage of not more than 24 kg and one carry-on bag not exceeding 5 kg.
