How to Get a Tourist Visa for Ghana

Ghana Tourist Visa

Ghana Tourist Visa

Going to Ghana for a little rest and relaxation? I went to Ghana many years ago and had a great time. If you go, be sure to check out the Cape Coast Slave Quarters. Also, Ghana has some great places to do zip lining if you are into that sort of thing.

If you are going to Ghana on tourism, you might need to get a Tourist Visa for Ghana.

Go to my Ghana visa page for information on the different types of visas for Ghana.

I’ll break everything down for you below about how to go about getting the Ghana Tourist Visa.

Visa required for U.S. citizens before you go to Ghana: Yes. A passport and a visa are required, as is evidence of a yellow fever vaccination.

Visa required for non-U.S. citizens before you go to Ghana: As stated here at the Ghana Government website, everyone except members of one of the fifteen (15) ECOWAS states, nationals of Kenya, Malaysia And Singapore, and holders Of German And Cuban Diplomatic/Service Passports need a visa in order to get into Ghana.
