Manual passport application in Ghana to cease, effective March 1

In view of this, online passport application has been made available at all passport centres.

The Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration who announced this in a press statement said that move is aimed at enabling it to migrate from the old manual passport application system to a new manual downloadable application.

This means that passport applicants will not have to buy forms from the ministry or commercial banks like before. Instead, they would have to download the form from the ministry’s website.

The Ministry is, hence, entreating Passport Applicants to use the online application platform; passport.mfa.gov.gh to submit their applications.
