Visa Refusals for Participants from Ghana

 

Unfortunately nobody of the 11 young people from Accra/Ghana got a visa to participate in our International Youth Exchange 2018 in Germany. Only the group leader was allowed to travel!

How come that one German ministry is supporting youth exchange projects with African countries - and a German embassy refuses visas for all young participants - explaining that the "Justification for the purpose and conditions of the intended stay was not provided"?

We protest against the refusals of the visa and urge the German government to coordinate procedures between ministries, put in action the SDGs, supporting young civil society commitment and treat partners - especially young people - with dignity!

The following video shows some reactions of people from Hamburg and Accra who are involved in the project.

Participants from Hamburg invited to talk about our project during our first days of our "exchange" in Germany without our guests from Accra | Ghana.
