In general, all imports are subject to customs duties. However, Ghanaian law provides exemptions for government, diplomatic personnel, NGOs, and some others.  Ghana operates under the Customs Valuation Code (CVC), the value assessment method of the World Trade Organization (WTO). See the customs, standards, and tariff sections above for more specific information on documentary compliance in those areas.
