Is there a difference between a short-term permit and an expatriate quota?


The term work permit is used synonymously with a short-term permit. Short-term permits can be applied for and given for specific periods of time, normally not exceeding five years (5 years) at a time. They are not renewable, extendable or transferable. Applicants must apply for exact and specific duration desired with justification.

Expatriate quotas on the other hand, once given are for an indefinite period, i.e. for as long as the investor needs to keep such workers in Ghana to facilitate his business. This is tied to the investor’s paid-up capital.
