  5. Visit the selected PAC on the date of appointment with the appointment slip and relevant original documents to complete the process.

Premium Passport Processing Centre option

For those who are struggling with the above self-service procedure, the Ministry has commissioned a fast-track application process office known as the Premium Passport Processing Centre at the Accra Digital Centre (Contact: +233 (0) 303 978 399 for directions).

To use this passport service, applicants will go through the usual vetting and passport applications. They will fill the form online, be vetted, and then be given an appointment date.

Afterward, all their data will be captured, and then they will make a standard payment of Ghc50 or Ghc100 for premium services.
