The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has said efforts are underway to evacuate some 331 Ghanaian students stranded in Dubai.

The Ministry in a statement said its attention has been drawn to the detention of some Ghanaian nationals in Dubai at the Al Tawadi Medical Centre and the Immigration Centre.

“In the wake of the above development, officers from our consulate-general in Dubai visited our stranded compatriots at the detention centre and extended proximity consular assistance to them,” the statement said.

It added “Even though our stranded compatriots went to the UAE on their own volition, the Government of Ghana is making necessary efforts in collaboration with the UAE authorities to effect the evacuation of our stranded nationals back to Ghana.”
