Medical exam in Ghana (K-1)

7 posts in this topic

Recommended Posts

Some of us have been wondering about forms needed for medical. I called the Akai House Clinic in Accra and they were very helpful with information about the required medical exams.

They told me that the only thing my fiance has to bring is his passport (and passport photos I think). No special form. They also said the cost will be 380 ghana cedis, and they said that includes vaccinations (although I'm not sure if that can be true, since maybe not everyone will need the same vaccinations).

The number for the clinic in the information the embassy gave out is wrong! The area codes have changed. If you want to call, the number for Akai House Clinic is: 233-302-784-772

After filling out a police report, he arrives at the embassy a little late, and they allow him in to speak to the CO, even though he has no valid ID. Thank God! The CO gives him another appointment on June 15th, to bring a new passport and also an updated police certificate.

I'll be looking for your reply, because I was told on three different occasions (once when I was there in the ofc) that 380 cedis covers all vaccinations and the medical exam. Keep us posted.

You usually have to go back to get a second dose of I believe Hep B. I have heard this from a few Ghana people...

Also you have to pick up your results. Which if the first is true- hopefully you can do it on the same trip....
