Ghana: FAIRS Country Report

  |   Attaché Report (GAIN)

The 2018 FAIRS report provides updated information on the regulations and procedures for the importation of food and agricultural products to Ghana. Ghana’s customs clearance process underwent significant change in September 2017, as the main port facility in Tema went ‘paperless’ under the new “Ghana Single Window Portal” initiative (see Section IX). Presently, the new electronic system appears to be well received by the business community and a welcome step towards a more streamlined import and export process. This report includes several other updates, including the general food laws (section I), changes in Facility and Product Registration (VII), and import procedures (Section IX).
