The extension for passport booklets takes effect from 31st March, 2019.
The government through the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and Regional Integration in a memo all of the country’s foreign missions stated, “Missions are hereby informed that government has decided to extend validity of ordinary passport booklets issues to qualified Ghanaian applicants from five years to ten years (5-10 years) with effect from 31st March, 2019. The processing fees remain the same until further notice.”
