Frequently Asked Questions

Visa: All visitors entering Ghana must have valid entry visas. There are two types of visas: Single entry and Multiple entries: Single entry visas are valid for a period of three months and must be utilized within three months from the date of issue.


This type of visa can be used only one time. Multiple entry visas are valid for more than three months, and the duration is at the discretion of the Consular officer and should not/cannot be challenged. A multiple visa can be used multiple times within its duration or validity. You are encouraged to begin your visa application 3rd week of June, latest 4th week in July to avoid any delays(www.ghanaembassydc.org/visa).


Please be sure to review/complete each step in the visa process thoroughly.

Passport: Please make sure that your passport is valid for at least six months and that you have at least one blank page available for the entry stamp



Ghana is generally considered safe for travelers. However, as with any foreign country, it is important to be aware of pickpocketing and petty theft, especially in crowded tourist areas. It is also advisable to take precautions when using ATMs or carrying valuables, and to avoid walking alone in unfamiliar areas at night.

Option: Enroll in the Smart Traveler Enrollment Program (STEP) (https://step.state.gov/step/) to receive alerts and make it easier to locate you in an emergency.


The official Ghana currency is the Ghanaian cedi, with a symbol GH₵ and a code GHS. Expect to see banknotes of 1, 2, 5, 10, 20 and 50 GH₵. Cash is definitely the best option for you, whenever possible.


You’ll be able to exchange dollars for Cedi at the hotel – usually better rates are offered for larger bills. Only newly issued USD are accepted. Yet, your best bet for a good rate may be cash withdrawal from ATMs. You can freely use a Visa and MasterCard in Ghana. American Express and Discover cards are rarely, if ever, accepted. Research the fees you may need to pay for using your credit card, as they can mount up. Use that opportunity to notify your bank of your travel plans, so they don’t cut you off for fear of fraud.


Bargaining and tipping are both expected. Outside of more formal establishments and supermarkets, you’ll often be offered goods for a price 30-50% higher than the seller actually expects to earn. So feel free to work on driving prices down, though within reason and good taste. Negotiation is the Ghanaian way! For services rendered well, such as excellent service at a restaurant or hotel, tips are encouraged.



We have exactly 15 seats on this experience.

 

Yellow Fever vaccinations are required to enter Ghana. Yellow Fever shots are valid for 10 years once administered. Plan to get the vaccine at least 10 days before your travel since proof of vaccination is not valid until 10 days after getting the vaccine, the time needed to develop immunity to yellow fever virus. You must receive your vaccination no later than December 17th. Please note: Because one of the effects of the vaccination can be lowered immunity, it is suggested you receive your Yellow Fever vaccination 3 months prior to travel.


There are also a number of recommended vaccinations listed on https://wwwnc.cdc.gov/travel/destinations/traveler/none/ghana .Be sure to consult your healthcare provider to consider what is best for you and your family and do your own research! We also love the idea of ensuring your immune system is at its peak and operating optimally while traveling. Take steps that feel right for you, under your healthcare provider’s guidance, to fortify and strengthen your system in ways you know works best for your body.


We also recommend you take Malaria medicines before arrival to Ghana. Please consult your doctor or pharmacist as to which tablets to take.



Missing a vacation is bad enough. Losing the money you paid for your vacation is even worse. Trip insurance is therefore recommended. You can purchase travel insurance on your own.


Our payment provider paystack accepts debit and credit cards from all over the world, given that they are issued by MasterCard, Visa and Verve
