What do I need to know before retiring in Accra?

Answer this Question

When we asked people what advice they would give someone preparing to move to Accra, they said...

"Accra is a great place to retire for expats looking for a warm climate and a vibrant culture. Before retiring in Accra, expats should research the cost of living and the availability of healthcare services. It is also important to familiarize yourself with the local laws and customs, as well as the language. Additionally, expats should consider the safety of the area and the availability of transportation. Finally, expats should look into the availability of recreational activities and cultural events in the area," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to Accra, Ghana.

"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," commented one expat who made the move to Accra, Ghana.
