Recognition of religion or belief in Ghana

According to the SRR, conditions for RoRB in the Republic of Ghana are classified ambiguous.

Recognition of religion or belief in Ghana


  • There is no distinction between the registration process for secular and religious organisations which suggests that there is not a recognition system at all; for this reason, Ghana has been classified as ambiguous.

  • Unregistration does not come with any penalties.

Positive elements:

  • Freedom of religion or belief is generally upheld by the government despite persistent issues with the country's recognition system.


  • Establish provisions for the existential recognition and legal registration of religious and belief distinct from procedures for secular entities.

  • Rid the system of any unstructured elements and make clarifications on elements of religious life that have not been specifically addressed in present legislation.

  • To become dynamic, establish a recognition agency independent of government.
