Ghana Visa and Passport Requirements

To enter Ghana, a valid passport is required by all nationals referred to in the chart above.

Visas for Ghana (or entry permits for Commonwealth citizens) are required by all nationals.

Visa note:
Ghanaian embassies require applicants to fill in the application form and courier it or hand it in accompanied by their passport, a copy of a paid-up air ticket, a letter of invitation from somebody in Ghana together with a copy of their passport, two identical passport-sized photos, and the fee appropriate to the type of visa required. Note also that Ghanaian embassies and high commissions in many countries only issue visas to nationals or residents of that country.

All travelers must carry a yellow fever vaccination certificate.
