• Consular office in Beijing issues Entry Permit visas to travelers visiting Ghana; renewal and replacement of Ghana Passports to Ghanaians as well as authentication/attestation of documents and registration of Ghanaian nationals resident in the People`s Republic of China.

    The Government of the Republic of Ghana strongly encourages Ghanaian citizens in the China to register with the Beijing Mission so that the Consular Office could assist when the need arises. Registration is free, confidential, and can easily be completed.

    Registering with Missions will facilitate the replacement of travel documents, and also make it easier to render support in case of accidents, death or when in distress.
  • Living in the China
  • All Foreigners are subject to the host country's laws and Ghanaians are strongly urged to abide by the laws of the People Republic of China. Remember, Consular officials are limited as to how they can assist a Ghanaian if they get into trouble with the law. Consular Officials cannot, for instance, represent you in legal proceedings or pay your legal fees or other expenses. They can, however, perform a variety of vital services, which include providing a list of attorneys, assisting in contacting your family in Ghana if you so wish, monitoring your welfare as well as the conditions under which you are being held.

    If you are arrested, immediately ask to speak to a consular officer at the Ghana Embassy. Under international agreements, the Ghana Government has a right to provide consular assistance to you upon your request. If your request to speak to your consul cannot be honored immediately, persistently try again.

    Travel safety is a major concern to this Mission. Although most Ghanaian and Ghanaian students in general travel to China for a short stay or studies, during a safe and enjoyable trip, some may encounter serious problems. Ghanaian and students are therefore strongly urged to register their stay as soon as they arrive in China with either the Ghana Mission in Beijing or for students to register with the local NUGS Association.
  • Yellow Fever Vaccination Requirement for Travelers Across Frontiers of Ghana

    Yellow Fever is an acute viral infection transmitted by Aedes aegypti mosquitoes. It is endemic and epidemic in several countries in Africa, South America and Caribbean islands. Case fatality rate is high in classic yellow fever epidemics. There is no curative medical treatment. It is however highly preventable by vaccination.

    In accordance with the International Health Regulations IHR 2005:
    - Article 36 (Certification of Vaccination or other prophylaxis);
    - Annex 6 (Vaccination, prophylaxis and related certificates);
    - Annex 7 (Requirement concerning vaccination or prophylaxis for specific diseases);

    The policy of the Ministry of Health Ghana for travelers across the frontiers of Ghana is as follows:

    Travelers above nine (9) months old coming (into or leaving Ghana) from countries with risk of Yellow fever transmission are required to have been vaccinated against Yellow fever at least ten (10) days before and where already vaccinated the duration of vaccination status of not more than ten years before entering Ghana. This also applies to all travelers leaving Ghana.

    Since Ghana is one of the countries at risk of Yellow fever transmission, it is recommended for travelers coming from countries with no risk of Yellow Fever transmission to have valid Yellow Fever Vaccination Certificate or records indicating their protection against Yellow Fever.

    Ghanaian Consuls will do everything they can to help. We offer appropriate help based on individual circumstances.
