How to get there

Ghana is much closer than you think, and the flying time from the UK or Europe is just six hours.

It would be fair to say that flights to Ghana are expensive compared to fights to, say, Gambia, however, this is because Ghana is not a mass tourist destination (a real advantage, we think). In low season - Jan to Jun and September to November, you will be able to get a flight from UK/Europe between £400 and £450. However during peak times, prices can be as high as £650. Having said that, once you get to Ghana, food, accommodation and transport are cheaper than you would get elsewhere and you will find the total cost of the trip is quite competitive.

A number of major airlines fly to Ghana and including:

British Airways (Direct from UK)

Ghana International (Direct from UK)

KLM (Direct from Holland)

Luftshansa (Direct from Germany)

Alitalia (From Italy via Lagos, Nigeria)

Virgin (From UK via Lagos, Nigeria)

Emirates (From all over the world via Dubai)

American Airlines (From USA via UK)

You can book flights online at the various airlines’ websites or through the well known travel websites.

Any non Ghanaian travelling to Ghana will require a visa. A visa application form can be downloaded from your local Ghana High Commission website. Applications take four days to process.
