    Hi–I am an American citizen with a short-term residency permit for South Africa. However, I am currently in Mozambique on a long-term assignment (in possession on a multiple-entry three-month business visa), where there is no Ghanaian mission. I am planning on being in Ghana for a short 2-day trip for tourism purposes in June (tentatively, arriving Friday, June 22 around 10pm and departing Sunday 24 around 10 pm). Are you able to assist with obtaining permission for me to receive a visa on arrival? As I have explained previously, there is no Ghanaian mission here in Mozambique and I won’t be in South Africa long enough during my onward travels to obtain a visa from the Ghanaian consulate there.

    Thanks–and looking forward to hearing from you.

    Best, Debjeet.

    We will be in Ghana for 7 days. Not having a visa upon arrival will this interrupt the 7 intended days?

    Hello! I’m holding italian passport and presently I am in Togo. I intend to return to Italy on a flight departing from Accra. I would reach the Airport travelling overland from Kpalimé in Togo directly to Accra airport, so I am going to stay in Ghana for a few hours only.
    I guess I need a transit visa.
    Is it possible to get it at the border?
    How much does it cost and how long will it last for?

    Good day, I’m a Mozambican citizen and passport holder. I’m planning a touristic trip to Ghana at the end of the year ( 10 days). There is no embassy or consulate in Mozambique but I’m told the Ghanaian embassy in Zimbabwe processes Visa for Mozambicans. I however do not feel comfortable sending my passport over to another country where I will not be present. Is it possible for me to obtain a visa on arrival and what documents do I need. Thanks

    I am a British born Ghanian, Living in Dubai & my uncle has fallen ill and i am trying to get to his side in Ghana.

    I cannot provide a No Objection Certificate (NOC) from an employer to the Ghana consulate here in Dubai as per the UAE to Ghana visa stipulations in the UAE.

    I cannot provide the NOC as I have left the employer due to wanting to make this trip, not knowing I would need an NOC from them. Without this NOC i can not obtain the Ghana VISA in the UAE, however i have already purchased the flight tickets and do not have the luxury of to fly to the UK and apply for a visa from there.

    Hello I am an American citizen with a passport trying to visit Ghana. I see on the visa application that it is asking if I have an airline ticket. I work for a major airline therefore I will be flying standby and don’t actually have a “ticket”. Will that be a problem? If not, how do I move forward?

    Also, I have been hearing conflicting information on whether I can get a visa at the airport in Ghana or whether I must have one upon arrival. If I can obtain a visa at the airport that would work much better for me because I don’t think I have time to get that process done before my vacation. Can you help clarify this? Thank you very much

    Dear Sir or Madam, I am retired but would like to live in Ghana. I am Dutch but live in Brazil. The problem is that I cannot get in touch with the Embassy of Ghana in Brasilia. I have sent several e-mails but never received a reply. You have the correct e-mail address for me. I have now applied for a visa from you. Can you inform me about the cost of the visa and how I can pay it in Brazil, or can this also be done in the Netherlands. I received a protocol number when I filled in the form. I was in Ghana on January 1 but did not get a visa at Accra airport. The emigration service did not believe that I had come to get to know my girlfriend personally. I was told that I had to pay $ 150 the next day. I said that’s good and no problem. But the next day I was told that I didn’t get a visa at all, but the country was deported. I also wasn’t told what the reason was. Another lady told my girlfriend that if I wanted to pay she could arrange for a visa. Before I left I had been well informed about obtaining a visa upon arrival. If I want to live there permanently, I need a residence permit. I was told that all that could be arranged there as well. My girlfriend had also informed everything at the emigration service. There was no problem if I came, unfortunately everything went wrong. I had received an invitation letter from her, but that too was set aside. They just didn’t believe us. I would like to hear from you what I can do now to return to Ghana, but now without problems. Thank you in advance for your effort, I stay with kind regards,
