Option A: For urgent missions:

Start with application for an Entry Business Visa, with applications for the Work and Residence Permits done immediately upon arrival in Ghana.

Option B: For non-urgent missions:

Start the application process for the Work Permit and acquire it for the applicant prior to their departure, then apply for the Residence Permit upon arrival in Ghana.

Please note: Applicants are required to have a yellow fever vaccination to travel to Ghana, done at least 10 days prior to departure. Ghana will not issue any visa without it.

Business visas

A Ghanaian business visa authorises the holder to:

  • Engage in business meetings;
  • Conduct feasibility studies; and
  • Attend conferences and similar events.

The visa holder is not allowed to work. In urgent situations it may be permitted to repair machinery on a business visa.
