All exchangees coming to Ghana are required to have a valid passport and a visa. The visa must be applied for in the nearest Ghana Embassy or Consulate and this must be done before 31st May each year in order to avoid delays. Exchangees will have to apply for an ENTRY VISA (not a one year visa). On your arrival to Ghana, you will be given 60 days extension at the airport. ICYE GHANA will collect your passports, you will be given an extension form to be filled at the orientation camp, support letters from the ICYE GHANA office and the work placements. Exchangees are required to provide 8 passport size photographs to be affixed to the forms supplied by the Immigration Service. ICYE –GHANA will then submit the forms on behalf of the exchangees. This may take 3-4 months due to the bureaucratic system it goes through.

Some banks do not accept the photocopies of passports. Exchangees are responsible for the payment of the extension permit.
