British Airways is to begin flying to Georgetown from March next Year, so Visa-free Access for Guyanese is seen, as helping to boost Traffic between the Two Countries.

The Visa-free Access is for Leisure, and Business Travellers. Persons seeking long Stays, or to Study and Work, would require the requisite Visas.

The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry today, also welcomed the Announcement of Visa-free Travel.

In a Release it stated:

“The Georgetown Chamber of Commerce and Industry (GCCI) welcomes the Decision of the United Kingdom (UK), to allow Visa-Free travel for Guyanese Citizens to the UK.
“Since 2019, the GCCI, made formal representation to the Government of the UK to remove it’s Requirement for Guyanese Nationals, to obtain a Visa to enter the Country. Since the onset of his time at the Chamber, GCCI’s President, Mr. Timothy Tucker, had lobbied consistently for the removal of Visa Restrictions, and today the Chamber is proud to see this Initiative come to fruition.
“The Chamber is confident now more than ever, that Visa-Free travel will foster deepened economic Relations, and promote Private-Sector development for both Countries. The GCCI continues to be a National Partner in economic growth by way of Private Sector development”.
