Business Visa  |  Ghana


 

Visa Requirements

 

::    Passport valid for six months on exit 

::    Two blank visa pages in passport

::    Two recent passport photographs

Please glue or staple one photograph to each printed application form.

::    Proof of UK residence

Non-UK passport holders must submit an original, valid UK residence card/permit, or have proof of residence in their passport.

::    Two copies of printed and signed application form

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.

::    Business introduction letter

The letter of introduction from your UK employer must be an original document on company letterhead, addressed to the High Commission. It should note your job tite, the dates and purpose of travel, plus details of companies or organisations to be visited in Ghana. The letter must be signed by an authorised individual and should confirm acceptance of moral and financial responsibility for your trip.

::    Letter of invitation

The letter of invitation must be an original, signed document on company letterhead, from a business or organisation in Ghana. It must include full contact details for the inviting party (including address), note the duration and purpose of travel, and confirm the length/validity of visa required.

::    Hotel booking confirmation

::    Yellow fever vaccination certificate

Applicants must be vaccinated against yellow fever at least ten days before travelling to Ghana.
