Emergency Visa Information for Last Minute Travelers
Citizens from these countries – USA, Western Europe, China, India – can get visas on arrival at the Airport. Any of the conditions below apply for Visa on arrival regardless of country:
Visa on arrival at port of entry eg. Kotoka International Airport, is $150.
If a Forum attendee needs the Visa PRIOR to landing in Ghana, the Alliance’s Ghanaian team can help facilitate. This service will cost US$200 due to the costs incurred for local staff to do last minute processing. In order for a partner to take this option, they must pay the Alliance the $200 via PayPal by making payment to email@example.com. Partners MUST pay the $200 in advance as the Alliance cannot cover these costs. Once payment is made, the partner must send to the Alliance at firstname.lastname@example.org:
We will then connect the partner to the Alliance team in Accra to facilitate getting the Emergency Visa. This can take up to a week to process.
All requests of this nature must be made during the week of October 19-23.
Documentation of yellow fever vaccination is required for those over nine months of age upon arrival from all countries with risk of yellow fever.
