Hello guys, just a quick short guide on how to renew your expired Ghana passport online, or apply for a new one.
The process is faster, as compared to before:
1.Go to https://passport.mfa.gov.gh
2.To renew an expired passport (both biometric and manual), select renewal.
3.Register, then Make Payment. I recommend you pay for express if you can afford it. I got my renewed passport in two weeks. Regular payment might take a month plus few weeks, but still fast, as compared to before.
The application form would be immediately made available to you online after payment.
4.Fill the form completely.
5.Select Any Of The New Passport Application Centres. The process is fast at all centres, but even faster at the new Accra Premium Centre, I was told. Mine was processed at the Tema centre but it was still ready in 2 weeks.
6.Book An Appointment
7.Print It Out And Take It Along With You On Day Of Appointment.
Nb: You still need to fill the form if you are renewing an expired biometric passport though.
Same process is applicable if you are applying for a passport for the first time.
You only have to select “new application” instead of “renewal”.
Also, take the number of any of the workers to call for confirmation when the stipulated date for collection is due. It is mostly ready on the stipulated date but yet to be transported to the Pac Centre. So always call to verify first.
I trust this is helpful.
