Apply for a U.S. Visa
Diplomatic and Government OfficialsOverview
A-1, A-2, and G-1 through G-4 visas may be issued to diplomats and other government officials for official travel to the United States. Generally, the type of visa required by a diplomat or other government official depends upon their purpose of travel to the United States. There are very specific requirements which must be met by applicants in order to qualify for A, G or NATO visas under U.S. immigration law.
Applications for A-1 and A-2 visas for Ghanaian nationals must be submitted to the U.S. Embassy Consular Section through the Ghana Ministry of Foreign Affairs. Third country national applications for A-1 and A-2 visas may be submitted by courier to the U.S. Embassy Consular Section from accredited diplomatic missions in Accra. A diplomatic note must accompany all A-1 and A-2 visa applications.
Applications for G-1 through G-4 visas may be submitted directly to the U.S. Embassy consular section. All G-1 through G-4 visa applications must be accompanied by a diplomatic note or, for international organizations, an official letter requesting the issuance of a G visa. Do not pay an MRV visa application fee through this site, as it will not be refunded.
