The Embassy of the Republic of Ghana in Oslo wishes to inform that it no longer processes and issues machine-readable passports.
However, the Embassy grants ONLY a one-time, one (1) year extension to individuals who possess such passports free of charge. For the avoidance of doubt, holders of machine-readable passports who wish to take advantage of the one-year extension are not required to pay any fee.
ACCORDINGLY, THE EMBASSY WISHES TO APPEAL TO APPLICANTS NOT TO MAKE PAYMENT INTO THE EMBASSY’S ACCOUNT WHEN APPLYING FOR THE ONE-YEAR EXTENSION. THE EMBASSY WILL NO LONGER BE IN A POSITION TO REFUND THE AMOUNT PAID BY APPLICANTS.
In fulfilment of the mandate in Article 67 of the Ghana Constitution, the President of the Republic and Commander-in-Chief of the Ghana Armed Forces, H.E. Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo delivered to the House, a Message on the State of the Nation yesterday, 9th March, 2021.

Saturday, 6th March, 2021 marked the 64th Independence Day of the Republic of Ghana. The day Ghana freed itself from the shackles of colonialism and imperialism becoming the first nation in colonial Africa to gain independence.
The Day is usually marked in Ghana, in our Diplomatic Missions and Consulates and among the several Ghanaian Diaspora across the globe with pomp and pageantry. However, due to national restrictions on Covid-19, the Embassy was not able to hold a physical celebration to mark the Day.
Instead, the Ambassador of the Republic of Ghana to the Kingdom of Norway with concurrent accreditation to the Republic of Finland and Iceland delivered virtual remarks to the various Ghanaian Associations/Union in Norway, Finland and Iceland to mark the occasion.

In line with the opening of Ghana’s borders by air effective Tuesday, 1st September, 2020, the Embassy wishes to announce the resumption of visa services to Ghana with immediate effect. The public is therefore, kindly advised to take note of the revised working days and hours due to the Covid-19 pandemic:
