Ghana Embassy Visa Requirements for Tourists

by David Pacella | January 13th, 2010

If you are a US citizen and planning to visit Ghana, you need to apply for a travel visa from the Ghana Embassy.  Visa requirements vary depending on the purpose of your trip.  Here are the requirements for tourists:

  • The Ghana Embassy requires you to complete 4 copies of their visa application form. You can photocopy the application, BUT each form must have your original signature on it. So, if you don’t want to fill out the form 4 separate times, fill it out but don’t sign it, make copies and then sign each copy individually.
  • A copy of your international yellow fever vaccine certificate. Keep the original-you will need to carry it with you to enter Ghana.
  • A copy of your round-trip plane tickets or your travel itinerary.
  • Your US passport, which must be valid for at least 6 more months and have a blank page in the back where the visa can be attached.

Single-Entry visas cost $50 and are valid for 3 months from the date they are issued, while multiple-entry visas cost $80.00. If you require expedited service, the Ghana Embassy charges an additional fee of $30.00.

When trying to get visas from foreign embassies, it is always helpful to have someone on your side who is familiar with the process.  When you apply through, you’ll get personal attention and clear, easy-to-follow instructions every step of the way.

We’ll assist you with the paperwork, helping you avoid common mistakes that can hold up the application process, and then we’ll forward your application to the Ghana Embassy for the fastest possible processing.

    I want to visit my friend in Ghana. I am a permanent US resident. I am still holding my Philippine Passport. What would be my requirement so I can enter Ghana.

    what do you mean by awaiting moderation?

    By “awaiting moderation,” we unfortunately mean “drowning in off-topic spam.” Thanks for asking an on-topic, intelligent question, Nora! 🙂
