Ghana Transit Visa Requirements

These requirements are applicable for Non-US Citizens applying at the Houston Office

A transit visa is now required for travel to Ghana in all situations. In the past direct air side transit did not require a visa and in some cases a transit through Ghana to another country could be accomplished by obtaining a visa upon arrival in Ghana. This is no longer possible.

In some cases applying for a tourist visa maybe a better option as a tourist visa allows for a longer length of stay and validity of visa than the transit visa does.


Please send TDS your current valid and signed passport. It must be valid 6 months beyond your intended stay and must have at least one blank visa page. Foreign Embassies cannot issue a visa on a page not labeled as a Visa page. Amendment and Endorsement pages in the back of the passport cannot be used for issuance of a visa.
A visa cannot be stamped on a page even if only one Small Stamp is on the visa page. If your passport expires within 6 months, you must renew your passport and then we will secure your visa with the new passport.
Please send 2 recent professional passport-type photographs.
Digital and non-passport photographs are not acceptable.

Please send a copy of your round trip airline tickets, or itinerary or e-ticket, or letter of confirmation from a travel agent. The itinerary must show the applicant's name, date of arrival and departure from the country, and flight information. The Embassy does not recommend purchasing your ticket prior to a visa being issued.
A Photocopy of Permanent Resident Card (Green Card) or valid U.S. visa and I-94 is required.
Travelers who entered the USA after April 26th 2013 should print the electronic I-94 form from the
Department of Homeland Security.
Minors (under the age of 18) must provide a clear copy of their Birth Certificate, color copies of both parents/guardians ID's and an Original and Notarized Letter of Consent from both parents/guardians authorizing the child for travel to Ghana.

Please Send Two Completed and Signed Application Forms.
