Hi all

Question is - best way to travel between Accra and Ho, specifically the university UHAS in Ho. It'll be on business so taxi or similar would prob be preferable. Would rather not hire our own car. Also would be a day trip, heading to Ho in the morning, coming back later in the day.
How much would it cost roughly? (Would prob need taxi/driver for best part of a whole day I guess?)

Thanks for any help!
Mike

Hi, I hope to get some responses / feedback on the subject topic since the Ghana forum here has been pretty active
Quite nervous about mailing my passport over to them, based on the reviews I have read from Yelp. Even read a review of someone who didnt get their passport back at all (eeks!!) bc the embassy lost it somehow.

Does anyone know the best method to travel from Winneba>CapeCoast>Accra cities (bus, taxi)? Also, how long does each trip take about (so I can make sure to catch my flight in Accra on time)?

Thanks,
Jess

Is one able to obtain a transit visa on arrival (VOA) in GHANA or does this need to be pre-arranged?

Your assistance would be appreciated.

I travel with Ecuador passport. Have an invitation letter from a Nigerian friend offering me even the lodging. I filled out the online application and paid while in Abidjan only to hear from the embassy there that they don't issue visas to non residents.

I have recently recieved the new edition of this guide, (edition no 7, published November 2016)
It is an excelllent guide. Not just on the day to day practicalities of travel, accommodation and food. It contains comprehensive historical, political and cultural information that would be of interest not only to first time visitors but also, I believe, (and perhaps especially so!) to long term residents of the country.
The cost of this guide is insignificant compared to the overall cost of a visit…
