Visa for Ghana


ECOWAS passport holders do not require a visa to enter Ghana. The Local Organizing Committee (LOC) is making arrangements with the Ghana Immigration authorities to issue visas on arrival for individuals from non-ECOWAS member states. Participants in this category should please send the bio-data page of their passport to and latest by 16th November 2019 for payment to be made on their behalf. The fees will be reimbursed to the organizing committee upon arrival. Visa fees will depend on where the participants are coming from. The exact visa fees will be communicated to each participant before their arrival in Ghana. Participants with Ghana’s diplomatic missions in their countries can also get their visas before departure. Kindly note that an invitation letter from the RCEES center director as Chairman of the Local Organizing Committee and an introductory letter from UENR Vice-Chancellor will be sent to each participant upon registration.
