What do I need to know before retiring in Ghana?

Live in Ghana? Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Ghana, they said:

"Housing is extremely expensive so make sure that your company provides adequate housing allowance as even the most expensive properties are of low quality. If you do not have an adequate housing allowance you might end up in a not very pleasant part of town and in a house that is virtually uninhabitable. Cost of living here is generally very expensive," added another person in Accra.
