Prepare for Your Trip

Contact your nearest Ghana Embassy for visa application forms.

The only legally required vaccination is yellow fever, however please check with your G.P. or travel clinic as to any other immunizations recommended for Ghana. (A mosquito net and repellent are advisable). Anti-malaria medications are generally recommended by travel clinics and we strongly recommend them. Malaria is highly prevalent in Ghana. Please follow the advice of your physician.

Ghana is just north of the equator and the sun can be quite hot. Please remember to bring a hat and sunscreen.

Although Ghana does have cash machines accepting all major cards, we recommend bringing cash with you as this saves a lot of time when changing money at the bank in Ghana! When bringing cash, keep in mind – The larger the denomination, the better the exchange rate.
