The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has taken disciplinary action against 27 officers, including three senior officers and 24 junior officers, on suspicion of engaging in various offenses that have tarnished the Service’s reputation.

In a circular signed by the Comptroller-General of Immigration, Mr. Kwame Asuah Takyi, it announced that the officers in question are accused of committing recruitment and/or visa fraud, among other offenses, which violate Regulation 138 (1)(a) and (k) of the Immigration Service Regulations, 2016 (L.I. 2245).
