Tourist 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. 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.

Please provide either a confirmed hotel booking to cover the duration of your trip, or a letter of invitation from your host in Ghana if staying with friends or relatives.
