Evacuation of GHANAIANS AND RESIDENT permit Holders

All persons whose Residence Permits expire whilst outside the country are treated as returning residents for purposes of re-entering Ghana. The GIS charges persons holding foreign passports but of Ghanaian descent and other foreign nationals, who are returning residents

Considering the fact that the expiry of the residence permits may have been occasioned by the COVID-19 travel restrictions in force, the Service will waive any penalties that might have accrued.

It must be noted that the GIS waived penalties for residence permit holders and visitors in Ghana whose permits expired during the lockdown period.
