Online visitor visa applications for Australia

Nationals of Ghana will have easier access to visas for short-term visits to Australia from 1 August 2014. Ghana and a number of other West African countries have been added to the list of countries who can lodge electronically for visitor (subclass 600) visa applications. See the full list of eligible countries for electronic lodgement and further information regarding online visitor visas here.

Welcome from the Australian High Commissioner 

Welcome to the website of the Australian High Commission in Accra, Ghana. I hope you find the site interesting and informative.

I was delighted to commence my new role at the High Commission on 21 January 2013, after earlier visits to Ghana in 2009 and 2011. I will also be responsible for Australia’s relations with Burkina Faso, Côte d’Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia, Mali, Senegal, Sierra Leone and Togo.

The Australian High Commission’s job is to advance Australia’s political, economic and other interests in all of these countries, and to work with partner governments on issues of common interest, including development, trade and investment and peace and security.

In particular, I look forward to working closely with partner governments during Australia’s two year term on the United Nations Security Council from 2013-14.

I am also very pleased that the Australian Trade Commission (Austrade) now has a regional office in the High Commission in Accra to help service the growing ties between Australia and the region.

I look forward to many enriching experiences working to advance bilateral relationships and meeting Australians and friends of Australia across the region.







Joanna Adamson, High Commissioner
