Everything You Need to Know about the Visa Requirements for Traveling to Ghana

Nationals of the Economic Community of West African States – which includes most of Ghana’s close neighbors – can visit Ghana without a visa for 90 days. Citizens from Singapore, Trinidad and Tobago, and Mauritius can also visit without a visa for 60 days. Citizens of countries in the African Union that are not part of ECOWAS can obtain a visa on arrival valid for 30 days after paying the required fee, usually US$150. Other visitors must apply for a tourist visa before traveling to Ghana. To apply, you’ll need a passport valid for at least six months, proof of a yellow fever vaccination (required for all visitors), a copy of your return ticket or travel itinerary, an invitation or reference letter (which can be from your accommodation in Ghana), and some passport photographs taken not more than three months before the date of the submission.
