How to apply for Ghanaian passport in two weeks.

To apply for a Ghanaian passport within a two-week timeframe, you will need to follow the expedited passport application process. Here are the steps to apply for a Ghanaian passport in a shortened timeframe:

  1. Gather the required documents: Collect all the necessary documents for your passport application. These typically include:
    • Completed passport application form (available from the Passport Application Center or online)
    • Birth certificate or proof of Ghanaian citizenship
    • Proof of identity (national ID card, driver’s license, or voter’s ID card)
    • Two passport-sized photographs
    • Any additional supporting documents required for your specific circumstances (e.g., marriage certificate, naturalization certificate, etc.)
  2. Fill out the application form: Complete the passport application form accurately and legibly. Double-check that all information provided is correct, as errors may cause delays in processing your application.
  3. Visit the Passport Application Center: Locate the nearest Passport Application Center in Ghana. You may need to book an appointment in advance to ensure a smooth process. Check the official website or contact the center directly for specific instructions and requirements.
  4. Submit your application: Take all the required documents, including the completed application form, to the Passport Application Center on your scheduled appointment date. Present your documents to the relevant personnel for verification and submission. Pay the passport application fee, which varies depending on the type and duration of the passport you require.
  5. Biometric data capture: After submitting your application, your biometric data (including fingerprints and a digital photograph) will be captured at the Passport Application Center. This step is mandatory for passport issuance.
  6. Request expedited processing: Inform the passport office staff that you require expedited processing due to your time constraints. Emphasize the urgency of your situation and provide any necessary supporting documentation to justify your request for an accelerated process.
  7. Payment for expedited service: Depending on the passport office’s policies, you may be required to pay an additional fee for expedited processing. Inquire about the specific amount and payment method accepted at the center.
  8. Follow up on your application: Regularly check the status of your application by contacting the Passport Application Center. Politely inquire about the progress and whether any additional steps are needed from your end.
  9. Collect your passport: Once your passport is ready, visit the Passport Application Center to collect it. Bring your receipt or any other proof of application to facilitate the retrieval process. Verify that all the information on your passport is correct before leaving the center.
