    How can you reschedule your appointment if you don’t make it on the first.

    • #4488 Reply

      Hi Isaac, to re-schedule, just go through the process again, click “next, next” until you get to schedule appointment and choose a favourable date.

    Pls how do I make changes in the witness column. I’ve already completed the application but yet to print it out.

    • #4491 Reply

      I spoke to a rep at the Passport Office some time back about this. Essentially, what he advised, and what I did was to print out the form, then use correction fluid to correct the details and name before going to the PAC in Accra.

    have been trying to upload a photograph whiles filling the online form. anytime i click on save, it gives me connection error feedback. i have tried all the passport office official lines youve provided above but nobody seems to be answering.
    pls ur advise is needed most urgently.

    • #4690 Reply

      A connection error could simply mean your internet connection is bad. Try switching internet, or browsers and try again. All the best, sir.

  • #4691 Reply


    my internet connection works absolutely fine. i am not the only person complaining. Two other friends elsewhere are giving the same complaint.
    i thinking theres some sort of specification as to the picture that should be uploaded… if there is, pls let me know.
    it is very annoying the nobody is attending to the passport office lines provided above

    *the feedback i keep getting*

    • #4692 Reply

      This could also be the file size. I personally used a 230 x 300 pixels image which was no larger than 500KB in size. You should try that too.
      About the numbers, you should just keep calling. It’s sad that no one seems to attend to the numbers.

    • #4699 Reply

      Sorry, Desmond. The good news is that you can apply for a new passport all by yourself. You just need to go buy a GHS 50 or GHS 100 forms at GCB and continue to fill the form online with all necessary details. All the best.

    Please I have applied to renew my passport online, wanted to know if the appointment date I will choose will be the day I will have my passport ready?

    • #4783 Reply

      Hello Mandy, your appointment date refers to the date you go to the Accra Passport Application Centre to complete your registration process. On that day, you will be given a date to come for the passport. You need to go there in person to have your biometric information taken.

    How do u edit an information on the already filled form assuming u made a mistake whiles filling the form

    • #4800 Reply

      From experience (and this might sound bizarre), you just need to use correction fluid to effect the changes on the printed form before you visit the Passport Application Centre. All the best.

  • #4818 Reply



    • #4819 Reply

      I can’t tell if they are contacted or not but whatever information unit provide should be accurate and genuine to the best of your knowledge otherwise you could be jailed. About the image, try and reduce the file size.

  • #4830 Reply


    I bought my passport forms for about a year a go, but I have not submitted them. Can I still use it? Can I also apply online with the same form? If yes, how should I go by it online. If no too what should I do. Thank you

    • #4831 Reply

      Hello Isaac, you can submit your Old Application form, however, you can not use that same form to apply online. If you need to apply online, you have to buy the new online application form and discard your old form. Thank You.

      Make sure the image is in jpeg format, use a different laptop and a stronger internet and see.

  • #4917 Reply


    Do I get to choose my application date?

    • #4976 Reply

      When working on the form online, you get to choose your appointment date, that is the day you go to the Passport Application Center in Accra to have your biometrics taken.

  • #4971 Reply


    if i m outside Accra, it means i have to use the old system of applying for passport.
    That is, buying the forms and filling it.

    • #4977 Reply

      If that works for you, yes. However, if you should use the online method, it means you would have to go to Accra Passport Application Centre to complete it.
