EU entry restrictions

The EU entry restrictions were eased somewhat on July 2nd, 2020 and as a result, visas can be reissued for the following purposes:

  1. Family reunification visa
  2. Visa to start studyingif the course cannot be completed in full from abroad (certificate from the university required, which must also be presented at the border control)
  3. Skilled Employment Visa (e.g. EU Blue Card), if the employment is necessary from an economic point of view and the work cannot be postponed or carried out from abroad (certificate from the employer required, which must also be presented at the border control)

Please also note the existing quarantine rules in the respective federal state when entering Germany. Further information can be found on the website of the Federal Ministry of Health. The relaxations and regulations for entry into the EU are reviewed every two weeks and adjusted if necessary. The number of new infections within two weeks is particularly decisive.

Visa for a short stay, so-called Schengen visa, can still only be issued in particularly justified individual cases (e.g. urgently needed medical treatment or urgent entry of the "core family", i.e. the spouse or minor children, as well as unmarried partners of German citizens under certain conditions)

The German embassy in Accra is responsible for accepting visa applications for short-term or long-term stays in Germany from persons who require a visa who have their habitual residence in Ghana, Liberia or Sierra Leone to have.

In addition, the German embassy in Accra processes visa applications on behalf of Estonia from persons who require a visa and who have their habitual residence in Ghana for a short-term stay of a maximum of 90 days in Estonia.
