Ghana’s Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration has requested for the stoppage of the utilization of manual visa application platform effective, March 1, 2020. The Ministry has from this time forward informed each resident with respect to Ghana to rather utilize the online identification application platform, which is (passport.mfa.gov.gh) to present their applications.
According to the passport authorities, this bearing is a step in a correct direction to improve services conveyance to the Ghanaian public and to make everything simple. The online visa application is presently accessible at all Passport Application Centers. The change follows Ghana’s Parliament endorsing an upward audit of visa application expenses in February 2020.
Ghana has in this manner broadened the legitimacy time of the country’s conventional identification booklets from five years back to 10 years, following protests by some Ghanaians that the five-year legitimacy period was excessively short.
