Authorities in Australia have planned to deport scores of Ghanaians after they were denied an extension of visa due to the lack of passports.
Ghanaian resident living in Australia, Frank Ampadu, has revealed that their passports have been brought to Ghana for renewal but are yet to be returned.
“You have just 28 days to appeal. And appeal what you are going to stand on because the reason why your visa has been refused is because you were not able to submit your passport. Even if you appeal, on what grounds are you appealing? it’s either you come home or I don’t know what else you can do” he revealed to StarrFM.
According to reports, the affected Ghanaians have been living in Australia without the passports for nearly two years and have been offered a 28-day period of appeal by the Australian authorities before deportation.
