The cost of A passport in ghana is fixed and flexible at the same time. Every year, passport application fee increases by at least 4cedis. Currently passport application fee cost 50cedis and the form can be purchased at the any bank that have the right to sell passport application forms.

Also passport processing fee is around 100cedis and this also increases by at least 7 cedis a year.

It takes at least 15 working days to process a passport application after submission. Of course if you cant wait for the fifteen working days,there is a work around to speed up things. IF you are in a hurry and you need your passport in 3days the only thing you need to do is motivate the officials involved in the form of money. This can be arranged at the passport office if you know how to deal with Ghanaian officials.
