Ghanaian Passport

Ghanaian passports are issued exclusively by the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration to Ghanaians granted citizenship in accordance with the laws of Ghana. There are three types of passport booklets – Contemporary (regular), Service, and Diplomatic passports. Ghanaian passport booklets are valid for travel by Ghanaians anywhere in the world, although the holder may need to obtain a visa from the destination country when travelling for some purposes. More than one valid Ghanaian passport of the same type may not be held.

  • Contemporary – Issuable to all citizens and non-citizen nationals and valid for ten years from the date of issue.
  • Service – Issuable to officials attached to government institutions who travel on official business.
  • Diplomatic – Issuable to Ghanaian diplomats accredited overseas and their eligible dependents.
