I'm completely surprised and shocked about all these comments people are saying about the Ghana Embassy here in the U.S. I'm appealing to the embassy for a big change and decipline so that all these kinds of commentary does not go any further. Since all these complaints are happening in the US. We expect the Ghana Embassy to set a good example of disciplkne. Thank u.

passpor renewal
I submitted my daughter passport for a five day expedited services since the 16th of July but has not received it. I thought I made a mistake by not including a return envelop, so I posted an envelop that is delivered today with a two day return posting service. I am suppose to leave here on August 2nd 2015 with my daughter. It's possible I can get the passport by Friday to enable me travel to Ghana.
Thank you.

Renwal Passport

I have follow up on my passport renewal since three months that I posted and paid a fee of $130.

According to US postal tracking an embassy official by name Bamfo receive my documents but with my numerous emails and calls no one has inform me of what why i am not getting my renewal done.

Please upon receiving and reading my email can somebody in the office communicate with me at least to let know hy and what is going on that for almost three months now i have not got my renewal passport.

i bought my ticket to travel to GHana knowing that the renewl will take at least two to three weeks as i was told my your office before i submitted the old passport.

If the process will delay, it possible to get my old passport back to i can use for identification purposes at needed places here in USA?
Thank you.

I took the pains to email the Ghana embassy knowing that no one would reply, boy was I wrong. I got a reply from the embassy the following day stating that they've received my email. So I emailed them back to find out how long the process is going to take but no one bothered to reply back. Anyway, I crossed my fingers and waited. Lo and behold, I received a pink slip from the post office on May 22 2015. When I went to pick up the package, I was astonished to find out that it was actually my new passport. The whole process took exactly 21 days. I mailed in my old passport and the application on May 7th 2015. And received my new passport on May 22nd 2015.

I had a very good experience
Reading all the negative reviews here makes me wonder if you guys did what is required of you. I must admit, I had a pleasant experience with the Ghana Embassy in Washington DC. When my passport was due for renewal I came online to seek information on how to go about it. But, the negative reviews here about how the Ghana embassy has poor customer service and how incompetent they are almost made me change my mind. But, for some reason I decided to give it a shot. First of all, I went to the post office and bought the $130 dollars money order the embassy required of all passport renewal applicants. And I told the post office clerk that I need a self-addressed prepaid overnight Express Mail. When I got everything I needed, I filled out the application and mailed it to the embassy. Exactly four days after mailing it I had a voice mail from the embassy asking me to complete the application by filling the witness portion, which is number 15. The caller made it clear to me that if they don't hear from me within the next 24 hours, they are going to send my passport and application back to me. Immediately I heard the voice mail I acted quickly. I went online and downloaded the form and filled out the number 15, and emailed it to them. I tried calling them to find out if they've received my email but unfortunately no one is available to pick up the phone. So I blocked my number and called back again, and this time around I was able to get in touch with someone. But unfortunately she couldn't help me. She told me to email them. To be continued. Stay tuned!!

Very bad customer service
I sent in my application for passport renewal since march, and I haven't heard from them yet. I called the phone number so many times but no one ever pick up the phone. Maybe we should petition Ghana government to look into this mediocre workers.

I am traveling with my family from usa through accra. Leaving on Tuesday with no way of knowing where are my passport at this time. For something so important and stressful there must be a way to track or get infos about your application. Is anyone knows how to reach them beside an email? Because I tried the email too.
