If you are a staff of a Ghana well-known enterprises or you have been to China for more than three times before, you don't need it. Otherwise, you will need one. Just ask your Chinese business partner to get it for you.

The first thing to do is to collect all documents required, for example, your passport, application form, photo, etc. You should visit the China embassy in Ghana to submit the application.
