This article covers all you need to know about the Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) recruitment 2021. So read this article to the end.

The Ghana Immigration Service is an agency of the government of Ghana under the Ministry of the Interior. The GIS regulates examination and authorization of the application for visas, entry and residence permits in Ghana.

The Ghana Immigration Service is mandated to regulate and monitor the entry, residence, employment and exit of all foreigners. … The Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr. Kwame Takyi, has made major changes in the Ghana Immigration Service which has affected some long serving Senior Officers at some of its commands.

The Ghana Immigration Service started as the Immigration and Passport Unit of the Gold Coast Colonial Police Force under the command of Mr. Nevile C. Hill.

On attainment of independence in 1957, the rapid expansion of the economy coupled with Ghana’s role as a trailblazer in the African liberation struggle led to the country being swamped with foreign businessmen, tourists, and African aliens.

To control this influx, a Cabinet decision in 1960 transferred the Immigration Unit to the Ministry of the Interior as a separate department, while the Ministry of Foreign Affairs took over the issuing of passports.

These measures were taken to enhance service delivery. Three (3) years later, the aliens Act 1963, Act 160 was enacted to give legal backing to immigration operations.
