    Hello. Pl
    Hello please i would like to know how one can prove at the embassy that they wont be a public charge since the Ghanaian embassy doesn't require an affidavit of support. Thank you

    Hello @Boakyewaa. Generally satisfying the basic educational requirement such as a secondary school qualification with required passes that would ordinarily entitle you to admission to a university along with a higher or advanced degree such as a Masters degree or higher OR specific skill sets which have a huge market demand in the USA along with evidence of a host (family member preferable) or a friend willing to accommodate you in the early weeks or months should suffice. A job offer from an American employer would also be great! Hope this helps.

    The evidence of
    The evidence of a host is what im concerned about. Does the embassy require the host to send certain documents to prove it is really true?

    No but you can be sure that they will carry out background checks on the host.

    Also, the embassy may not require an affidavit of support but if you can get one it will help.
    You don’t necessarily need to have high skills or whatever, you just need to be able to support yourself. If you have a a stable employment record it’s a good sign of work ethic. I’ve met Ghanaians in the US doing all sorts of things that support them without needing any special qualifications - hot dog stand operator, Uber driver (actually have seen a good number of African immigrants doing this), ticket seller at a museum, Verizon store assistant...

    Hi everyone.

    I've been lurking for some weeks since I got my interview date and I had a few questions to ask . my interview is in April.

    I have a high school diploma, I schooled in the States. Would the diploma alone without transcripts be enough evidence of my high school education? I also have a bachelor's and a master's degree.

    My host is my best friend from high school. But I'm considering changing it to my Aunt at the interview since she now has her own place. Would that be okay? I have 3 relatives and a lot of friends in the state I plan on moving to.

    I also wanted to double check I have all the correct documents to support my interview with the checklist below.

    2nl
    Ds260 (confirmation page plus the whole document)
    $330
    2 passport pictures
    Passport (including expired ones) + photocopies
    Birth certificate + photocopy
    Police reports + photocopies
    Medical results + photocopy
    High school diploma + photocopy
    Degrees & transcripts + photocopies

    Thanks for the help. Also thank you for all the help you have been giving.

    You're welcome. Yes you may change your host during your interview or at the POE. You only need the confirmation page of the ds260. No need for copy of the medical report. Please be sure to NOT open the sealed report.

    Hi Kojo, sorry oo, I have been running around a lot lately. Hmm there was some mishap but by God's grace it's been resolved. I have picked the passports and the visa packets. All is set for us now, we bless God.
    Thanks for asking.
