VISA INFORMATION

HOW DOES THE VISA APPLICATION WORKS?
All volunteers to Ghana will be required to obtain a visa from their nearest Ghanaian Representation (Embassy, Consulate or High Commission).

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF WEBSITE:

  • For the Ghanaian Embassy in the USA VISIT www.ghana-embassy.org
  • For the Ghanaian High Commission in the UK VISIT www.ghanahighcommissionuk.com
  • For the Ghanaian High Commission in Canada VISIT www.ghc-ca.com
  • For the Ghanaian Embassy in The Netherlands VISIT www.ghanaembassy.com
  • For the Ghanaian Consult General in Australia VISIT www.ghanacg.com.au
  • For the Ghanaian Embassy in Germany VISIT www.ghanaemberlin.de

HERE ARE A COUPLE OF TIPS TO HELP YOU ON YOUR WAY:

  • Contact your nearest representation to find out whether you have to apply in person or by Email.
  • To apply you will need a letter from us confirming your placement. We will provide you with this letter as soon as we receive your application or you have requested it.
  • You will need to complete a form for which you will need the following:
  • passport photos
  • flight details
  • two references from us
  • passport details
  • Depending on the embassy you may only be provided with a three month visa. Do not worry if you are volunteering OR interning for longer than that. This is standard procedure. Upon arrival in Ghana you will receive a stamp of either 30 or 60 days in your passport. 60 days is the maximum you will get (no matter what duration of visa you applied for - a bit strange, we know). You will have to have your visa extended in-country. PHIVOG will help you with this.

It says on the form that I need references. How do I get these?
Send us a mail and you will be provided with the references
It does not have volunteering OR internship as an option under the Purpose of Journey section. What should I select?

If the form does not have volunteering or internship as an option you should select holiday/tourism and make a note where possible that you are volunteering OR interning. To apply for a volunteer visa you will need a letter from us confirming your volunteer placement. We will provide you with this as soon as you notify as.
Should I choose single entry or multiple entry visas?
If you think you will travel outside of Ghana during your trip, you will require a multiple entry visa to enter Ghana again. You can always obtain re-entry visas in Ghana from Immigration.
