Travel Visa

Most foreign citizens wishing to travel to Ghana need a visa. Holders of diplomatic passports and citizens of ECOWAS countries and select others are exempt; please check the full list of exempt countries here.

The responsibility of obtaining a visa lies with the participant. Holders of regular, non-diplomatic passports should apply for a single-entry tourist visa; a business visa is not required.

Visa requirements may vary slightly based on nationality and country of application. For the latest updates, please consult Ghana’s online visa application portal. If you experience any technical difficulties accessing this platform directly, please search for the Ghanaian embassy or high commission through which you will be applying for a visa (e.g., for the United States or Kenya) and access the platform via those websites. Click here to find a list of Ghanaian Missions abroad. For any specific questions, please refer to the live chat function that can be found once you enter the visa application platform, in the lower right-hand corner of the webpage.

Visas applications must be submitted via the online platform as well as printed and mailed to the relevant embassy or consulate. Once the online application is completed, the online platform will generate a bespoke checklist with all the application materials that need to be submitted by mail.

Please ensure sufficient time for visa processing and mailing (at least two weeks for expedited service and at least four weeks for regular service).

Basic requirements for a single-entry tourist visa:

  • A passport that is valid for at least 6 months and contains at least one blank page
  • A recent passport photo in color
  • Proof of yellow fever vaccine
  • Proof of Covid-19 vaccine
