Dear @christianowusu

Welcome back to the Wefugees community and thank you for sharing your question. 

To answer your question more detailed, knowing the type of residence you have might be helpful. Speaking in general, applying for a visa, some countries require a minimum validity of your passport of 6 months.

 Regarding your German residence permit (given the fact, that you are allowed to travel/leave Germany in general and also allowed to visit your country of origin), I don’t see an issue as long as the residence permit is valid. 

Would you agree @mbeon-caritas or @Mbeon-Lena

However, please don’t hesitate to get back to us if you want to discuss your situation further. 

All the best,

Thanks for the fast reply my residence permit is Para 25 Act 5 I got it from my child who also have para 33 she was born here because the mother have Paars 28 Becox the first child the Vater is Deutsche and the Child have German passport.
My Ghana passport is valid for 5years is only my residence permit that will expire on August but am allowed to travel to Ghana but I taught I have a limit month for it to expire it will be a problem but thanks for explaining all to be.
Hope u get back to me
Thanks @Meike, I agree to what you said earlier, especially now that we know about the valid Ghanian passport (no need for visa) the holiday should't be a problem.
Since Meike tagged me in her comment on your question, i have also read it. I can only support her answer. Thanks @Meike and @Mbeon-Lena. All the best.
