Press accreditation

All Foreign Correspondents wishing to visit Ghana are required to complete Press Accreditation application forms at the Mission.

The application, with three passport-size photographs, will be forwarded to the Information Services Department in Accra for processing. To avoid delays, the application must be submitted at least fourteen (14) days before the date of departure.

The visiting correspondents should indicate the purpose of their visits, members of government and officials they would wish to interview and places of interest they would like to visit.

Note:  All visiting correspondents should, on arrival in the country, report at the Information Services Department for accreditation before they undertake any assignment. A fee is charged for the issue of press cards to foreign correspondents.

Personnel of the Armed forces, Police, Immigration, Customs, Excise and Preventive Service (CEPS) and Prisons should not be photographed, filmed or interviewed without prior permission from the Director of Information Services Department.
