Are you planning a trip to Ghana? Do you know if you’ll need a visa to visit Ghana? Yes, a Ghana visa is required. To visit Gabon, you will need either a business visa or a tourist visa. Before you apply for your visa, we recommend that you gather all required documentation. A Ghanaian visa application form, a signed United States passport with at least six months validity, four passport photos, and a trip itinerary should all be included in your documents.

Additional documentation is required if you’re traveling to Ghana on business. A business letter should introduce the applicant, describe the nature of the business that will be conducted during the trip, specify the type of visa required and the preferred validity period, and demonstrate sufficient funds for your travel expenses. You should write your business letter on the letterhead of the company for which you are employed.

When traveling, make sure your passport has at least two (2) blank visa pages to accommodate any stamps. The Embassy of Ghana’s address and phone number can be found below.

The Embassy of Ghana is located in Forest Hills in Washington, DC.
