Visa requirements for Ghanaian people are administrative entrance limitations imposed on Ghanaian citizens by the authorities of other countries.
Before you can travel to any of these countries, you must hold an international passport if you are a Ghanaian citizen. According to ECOWAS rules, you can stay in any West African country for up to 90 days using your international passport.
In addition, numerous Commonwealth countries allow Ghanaians to visit their countries for a limited time without requiring a visa. You should, however, be aware of the length of your stay in these nations if you do not have a visa. When this time period expires, you will be forced to pay a modest charge to obtain a visa. It’s worth noting that some of the nations on this list will provide you a visa on arrival for a nominal charge.
This article seeks to update you on the full List of the 2023/2024 Visa free countries for Ghanaian Passport Holders.

According to the Guide passport index, the Ghanaian passport is presently ranked 82nd. It allows visa-free travel to 62 countries.

Separate from these Ghana visa-free countries and visa-on-arrival countries, there are 166 additional destinations which Ghana passport holders either need a physical visa to enter or an eVisa (i.e. visa required countries).
