What do I need to know before retiring in Ghana?

Answer this Question

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

"1. Expats should research the cost of living in Ghana to ensure they can afford to retire there. 2. It is important to familiarize oneself with the local culture and customs to ensure a smooth transition. 3. Expats should also research the healthcare system in Ghana to ensure they have access to quality medical care. 4. Expats should also consider the climate in Ghana and the availability of activities and amenities that suit their lifestyle. 5. It is also important to research the visa and residency requirements for expats in Ghana. 6. Expats should also consider the safety and security of the area they plan to retire in," mentioned another expat when asked about moving to 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.
