To get a valid visa for travel, then follow these steps: 

  • Step one: locate a visa office. The first step is to find a visa office or an official representative of your destination country in charge of issuing visas. This could be a consulate or embassy in Ghana or another administration authorized to issue visas. 
  • Step two: assemble the required documents. Once you know who is in charge of visas, you can prepare the required documents. The list of documents changes from country to country, and you will usually receive a complete list from the embassy/consulate. But, they generally ask you to provide the following: 
  • Step three: attend the visa interview. After your documents have been prepared, you have to make an appointment at the visa office to submit your application and attend a visa interview. Some embassies/consulate offices may ask you to pay the application fee the day of your interview, while others require you to pay the fee beforehand and provide proof of the payment- make sure you check with the visa office. 
  • Step four: get your visa. Once you submit your application, it will take a few months to process the visa request. Then if your visa is approved, you can continue with your travels. 

Please keep in mind to stay only while your visa is valid; staying after your visa expires comes with severe consequences such as hefty fines, deportation, or visa refusal (in the future).
