Ghana - Import Requirements and DocumentationGhana - Import Requirements
In general, all imports are subject to customs duties. The law provides exemptions for government, diplomatic personnel, NGO’s and some others.
Ghana operates under the Customs Valuation Code (CVC), the value assessment method of the World Trade Organization (WTO). Ghana also has a Destination Inspection Scheme, which means that imports are inspected at the port of clearance in Ghana rather than prior to export.
From 2000 through September of 2015 a number of international Destination Inspection Companies (DICs) operated in Ghana. These included Gateway Services Ltd., BIVAC International, Ghana Link Network Services, Inspection Control Services and Webb Fontaine Ghana Limited. In September 2015 the Ghana Revenue Authority took over all destination inspection processes at Ghana’s ports.
