Passports issued in any country and illegally posted or carried on persons other than holders to the countries of residence of the holders are not valid in those countries. They will also not be validated by our Missions/Embassies when presented since they were not issued by them. Consequently applicants must renew or obtain their passports at their nearest Ghana Missions/Embassies.
