H.E. Gina Ama Blay

Ambassador of the Republic of Ghana to the Federal Republic of Germany

Welcome

I warmly welcome you to the website of the Embassy of the Republic of Ghana in the Federal Republic of Germany. In addition to Germany, the Embassy is concurrently accredited to the Republics of Estonia, Latvia, and Lithuania. As you explore this site, you will discover more about Ghana and understand why it is often described as a ‘model democracy’ in Africa.

Here, you will find useful information about Ghana, her history, people, culture, geography, politics, tourism, and economy as well as her enabling business environment which makes her one of the ideal investment destinations in Africa.

In addition to information on our consular services, there is an array of quick links to other relevant state institutions which you may explore. Ghana’s beautiful, diverse and colorful tourism attractions also await you.

There are currently Ghana Honorary Consul offices in Hamburg, Hannover, Dortmund and Munich which provide consular services (Business Visas and related services) in those areas. We are in the process of appointing a new Honorary Consul for Frankfurt. However, clients who require consular services in cities other than those mentioned above will be served in Berlin.

It is an honour for us in the Embassy to work towards deepening Ghana’s bilateral relations with the Federal Republic of Germany and the countries of concurrent accreditation as well as serving you in the best way possible. Therefore, I encourage you to feel free to send in comments, questions and/or suggestions/ideas on how to improve upon our services.

You are most welcome to explore Ghana here!
