An application to renounce one’s Ghanaian nationality should be addressed in the form of a letter to the Minister of Interior through this Embassy.

The letter should give applicant’s detailed curriculum vitae, and state the name and current address of his/her parents. The letter should also state whether the applicant is in any way indebted to the Government of Ghana by way of bond, scholarship or otherwise. Applicant will also complete the appropriate Form.

The processing of Citizenship Renunciation is at the cost of CZK3500, which is inclusive of the cost of the Citizenship Renunciation Form.

The application letter together with the completed Form and relevant photocopies of applicant’s current Ghana Passport should be returned to the Embassy with one (1) passport-size picture and a letter of Warranty issued by the Czech Region where he /she resides. An English translation of the Warranty should accompany the application. Also attach a photocopy of the Payment receipt for the application form.

 It must be pointed out that the renunciation becomes legal only after a Certificate has been issued by Ghana’s Minister of Interior.

Under Ghana’s Nationality Law, children under the age of eighteen (18) years CANNOT apply to change their Ghanaian nationality. Please note that any cancellation and erasure on the Renunciation Form renders it null and void and will not be forwarded to the appropriate authorities in Accra. All applicants must endeavour to avoid mistakes.
