The application form for a Ghanaian visa must be completed online. Please ensure all questions are answered in full, and all names and details exactly match those in your passport. You must list two referees on the form, but one of these can be your hotel. Once you have completed the online form, print it out twice, then sign and date both copies, ready to submit to us along with the other application requirements. Please do not process any payment; we will handle this on your behalf.
When completing the online form, you will also be asked to select an appointment date and time. In order to attend the appointment on your behalf, we must receive your application by 3pm the day before the date of your appointment. It is, however, advisable to submit your application as early as possible, to allow time for documents to be reviewed and corrected should there be any issues.
We can complete the online application form on your behalf for an additional fee. Please see our Services page for further information.
