Invitation Letter for Visa to Ghana

Last updated on

Are you planning to visit Ghana? You might need a visa. If you have already confirmed that you need a visa, then you may also need an invitation letter. An invitation letter gives the visa officer a clear statement of your purpose for visiting Ghana. It gives them the duration of your stay and your proposed place of stay.

What is required in the Invitation Letter

A letter of invitation from sponsor (either host company or individual) explaining the relationship to the applicant and the purpose of travel to Ghana. In addition, the letter must indicate the length of stay, place of stay, (including full residential address and telephone number), and contact information. A copy of the host’s Passport must be included, and residency permit if not a Ghanaian citizen.

I started this blog in response to the needs of friends and family for invitation letters for a visa. After thousands of letters and visas over a period of 12 years, I have become a voice in this arena. I am not an immigration lawyer. I am just a voice of help in the jungle of the internet. Thanks!

    Please I have been dating a Chinese lady and I want to go to China and marry her, should she follow the sample above or mention the purpose of marriage in the letter and if I intend to stay after marriage should she state it in the letter?

      You should state clearly how many nights you are planning to stay together. If it’s above 5 nights, it’s a solid relationship.
