Resident Permit In Ghana
A Residence Permit authorizes a foreign national to live in Ghana for a specified period of time. A Resident Permit may be issued to a foreign national who intends to remain in Ghana for a substantial period of time. It may be issued usually generally between the duration of one to four years in the first instance, and no more than eight tears in total.
A foreign national who wishes to study, carry on business, work or employment in Ghana must apply for and be issued with a Residence Permit to carry on the activity for which the permit is sought. Retirees or persons with regular income or landed property who can demonstrate that they will not be a charge on public funds may be eligible for a Resident Permit.
One of the conditions for the grant of a Residence Permit is that the applicant must have been lawfully admitted to Ghana at the time of the making of the application. When granted, it is also subject to the condition that the person to whom it is granted shall not undertake any employment or engage in any business, trade or profession except as may be specified in the Permit.
We are able to assess the eligibility requirements for the permit, advise on relevant supporting documentation, complete relevant application forms, draft and review supporting letters in support of the application, and to engage with the GIS officials to ensure that application is processed within time.
