Passport Processing Time

The processing time for Ghana Passport is 1 month starting from the date the applicant meets all the necessary requirements and his/her Biometric Data captured. Applicants who submit Incomplete supporting documents would be asked to reschedule their appointment for the data capture and this will consequently extend the processing time.

Please note that Incomplete applications will not be processed until the applicant meets all necessary requirements.

Due to the increase in the number of Passport applications, the Embassy will NOT be in the position to contact applicants who fail to provide all necessary requirements via telephone. You are therefore requested to provide a valid EMAIL ADDRESS for further communication regarding your application.


FedEx is the only approved courier service by which these services will be run.

150 DKK is required for posting one (1)  passport. By default, the cost of postage is already part of the application fees. If your application/documents weigh more than the weight of 1 passport, you will be contacted to make up for the difference in cost.

Applicants may also arrange for their own courier service (DHL, UPS, or EMS). This, however, would not affect the application fees.

Method of Payment

1. Consular fees must be paid through Bank Transfer to the Embassy's Danske Bank. Do not post cash!!

2. Applicants who make payments through banks other than Danske Bank should be mindful that it may take a couple of days before the transfer is complete. Please note that the issuance of a bank receipt upon completion of your transfer either through internet banking or the bank itself is not a confirmation that the transfer has been successful. This is because some applicants end up transferring into various accounts other than the Embassy's account.

3. To speed up the processing of the application, applicants are kindly advised to make their payments in person at the nearest Danske Bank office near them. In addition, they are required to submit their applications with a receipt or transfer advice from the bank. Please do not post cash!!

The Embassy wishes to request all applicants to ensure that the name of the payee corresponds with the name on the application made to the Embassy. Applicants who transfer their fees through another party are to make sure that the said party, indicates on whose behalf the transfer was made.


Bank Charges

Money transferred from another bank other than Danske Bank will attract a transfer charge of 50 DKK. Applicants are therefore advised to pay all bank charges to avoid a shortage in the application fees. Any application with a shortage in the required fees will not be attended to. Please check with your bank to ensure you pay the appropriate fees. The Visa Application fee or receipt of payment must be attached to your application.

Application Fees are NOT REFUNDABLE if the application is unsuccessful.
