Ghana Tourist Traps: 24 reviews and 12 photos


This government legal money- spinning swindle is not unique to Ghana. Getting a visa is both time consuming and costly. All nationals, other than West Africans, require a visa to enter Ghana. We got ours by visiting the Ghanaian Embassy in London and leaving the passport with them, having downloaded an application form from the net. Costs and timing will depend on your nationality and where you reside, so check with the nearest Ghana consulate for up-to-date information. Visa service agencies can take the leg-work out of the process for you, but they do charge a fee. Fees vary from agency to agency.
