The Ghana eVisa is an upcoming online visa announced by the Ghanaian government and expected to be introduced in the near future.
Once available, the eVisa for Ghana will permit eligible citizens to travel to Ghana for short stays and eliminate the need to apply for an embassy visa or queue for a Ghana visa on arrival.
The government of Ghana is primarily implementing the Ghana visa online to expedite the visa application process in order to boost the tourism sector in the country.
It is expected that the online Ghana visa will allow eligible citizens to travel to Ghana for purposes of tourism, transit, or business and to gain entry to the country at Kotoka International Airport.
Eligible citizens will be able to apply through the simple Ghana online visa application, which will only take a few minutes to complete with personal and passport details.
It is expected that applicants will also be required to answer a few questions related to security matters in order to submit the application and receive an approved eVisa.
The duration of stay permitted with the Ghana tourist eVisa and the number of entries have not yet been announced by the government of Ghana and will be published on this site once available.
Those who wish to visit Ghana for purposes not expected to be valid with the eVisa, such as to work or study in the country, will be required to apply for a Ghana embassy visa from the nearest diplomatic office of Ghana.
