He said during the dialogue meeting, experts recommended few things to ECOWAS leadership.
“We recommended that come January 1, 2022, all borders in ECOWAS region should be opened because the Liberian borders were open throughout the outbreak of COVID-19 pandemic,” Commissioner Yebleh said.
He indicated that experts recommended that a testing and verification COVID-19 vaccine card platform be established; noting that it will help them verify vaccine card and test result at borders and stressed that most of the citizens in ECOWAS region are complaining on different tests being taken at airports in other countries in the region during traveling.

“We also recommended that by next January 2020, all citizens using various borders in ECOWAS region should be fully vaccinated as ECOWAS citizens because once you are not vaccinated, definitely there will be no access of passing through any borders in the region,” he said
He stated further that all border actors in the region should be vaccinated before taking assignment at border points.
Commissioner Yebleh said all recommendations from experts on migration have been forwarded to ECOWAS ministers responsible for border management, adding that they are to meet this week and act upon the recommendation from migration experts.
