Life in Ghana

Postby EasyExpat » Wed Mar 17, 2010 3:47 pm

Hi,

You are living in Ghana, or you used to live in Ghana. How did you decide to move to Ghana?

Help the community and share your experience as an expatriate in Ghana. :idea:

Was it a difficult move? Was it complicated to find a job in Ghana? To find an accommodation in Ghana?

Did you have some visa/immigration issue to go to Ghana? Or maybe everything was organised by your company for professional move?

:arrow: You can share here the different steps of your move in Ghana. What would you recommend to people who would like to live in Ghana?

Thanks in advance for sharing and giving advice. 8-)

Hello dear expats going to Ghana!

I'm a french expat in Ghana for 2 years now, and after a first dificult year, I manage to find out what I could do there (work and activities).
I'm writing a blog about life in Ghana (people, culture, typical things, transport, shopping, prices...) and steps and tips to live in Accra before and after arrival.
I speak also of my experience in an orphenage in Accra.
Hope it will help you to start in Accra or in another city as Tamale, Kumasi or Takoradi!

If you have one question, do not hesitate to contact me. I ll always respond to you.


Thanks for your comments !

Isabelle

Hello Isabelle,

As you might have seen, we have a :arrow: guide for expatriates in Ghana.

In addition we have opened many other topics on the forum for discussions. It would be great if you can share a few advice/tips (they are in French and in English, you can respond to both).
You will find the posts usually marked with a Image icon in our :arrow: forum Ghana. For example:
:arrow: The Best Areas to Live in Ghana
:arrow: Public Transportation in Ghana
:arrow: Setting-up Internet in Ghana
:arrow: Shopping in Ghana/Accra
:arrow: Flat or House: How to Rent in Ghana
:arrow: Going Out and Meeting People in Ghana
:arrow: ...
:arrow: Les meilleurs endroits où vivre au Ghana
:arrow: etc.

Thanks in advance and see you soon on the forum :wave:
