Visit Parliament

Parliament of Ghana is open to visitors all year round from Monday to Friday.

Visitors are welcome to watch proceedings  from the public gallery. The gallery is usually open to the public from Tuesday to Friday when the House sits. You can, on most days, just turn up and wait for entry to the public gallery on the day. It is not necessary for individuals who wish to observe the proceedings of Parliament to seek advance permission in writing. Individual visitors are just required to come with some form of identification (Passport, Ghana card, e.t.c). After passing through the security screens, they are allowed in. 

However, those who wish to visit Parliament in groups or to embark on educational tours are required to put their request in writing to the Director of Public Engagement or complete the Online Application Form. There is adequate vehicle parking space for visitors in front of the main entrance to Parliament.
