I’m planning on going to Togo next week, crossing the boarder from Ghana in the South. With this in mind, I have a number of questions I am hoping people can help me with:
- Where is the best place to find tros in Accra that go to Lome?
- How long does it take to get to the boarder?
- Does the boarder shut at 18:00?
- Where is a good place to stay in Lome?
- How easy is it to find the Service Immigration Togolaise? As I would like to get a visa for Benin (for x1 Brit and x1 American)…
Here are things, i'm about to stay in Accra for 3 days and visit some of my client, maybe take a tour in the city, something like this. But i don't have driver license or don't know where i could rent a car with driver. Also if i take a taxi, how it will cost me, i mean based on what, kilometer? how can i be sure about that not being ripped off? Can anyone help me with that?
Anybody know whether it is possible to get visa for Benin at the Benin embassy in Accra on the same day?
How long it takes to issue visa to Benin, how much it cost and what are the requirements?
We will get our Ghana visa before leaving Canada. Is it possible to obtain a Togo visa at the Ghana/Togo border? Also, is it possible to obtain Benin Visa at Benin/Togo Border?
What are the requirements beyond Yellow Fever certificate if the visa is obtained at the border?
You can find my earlier post about Transit Visa and that company Traveldocs.com saying quite authoritatively that a Transit Visa is required even if staying airside ... was confusing, caused much stress, much google searching emailng to Ghana Immigration who never responded ... all i can say about that company is they are WRONG !!
Maybe they mis-interpreted something, maybe they want things to be more certain and therefore want to get Transit Visa's and for you to purchase their services…
I did finally go through the lengthy process of obtaining a VISA to Ghana, but I am also interested in seeing Togo and Benin and was advised to instead apply for them while in Ghana.
While it would take many weeks to apply from Europa, I did read some old posts claiming that applying from Accra would be much quicker and could take less than a day.
As VISA situation is constantly changing, can someone please confirm whether that is still the case and their experience of the procedure in…
i've been searching for hours the visa information for Ghana if you are not in your homecountry. It seems that it is nearly impossible to obtain a visa for Ghana if you are abroad.
I'm staying in Benin for the next 4 months (just picked up my 6 months resident-visa) and would like to obtain a visa for Ghana in Cotonou or Lome. Has anyone information if this is possible? Anyone with experiences in Cotonou or Lome?
Thanks a lot
Wanting to book ticket and save 33% to 50%, but requires long 20hr layover (and change of airlines easily resolved).
The 17% saving (50% to 33%) can be achieved by booking 2 separate tickets (on same airline) vs 1 single ticket ... go fiure Kenya AIrways! i think it's the lower taxes in Ghana
(a) wishful thinking ... book flight (on 2nd airline) 45 MINUTES after arrival, but if initial flight late ==> uh oh, risk too great.
(b) i'm n Sudan, going to SOuth SUdan .... no Ghana…
Has anyone recently crossed the boarder between Ghana (Paga) and Burkina Faso (Leo) and knows how much visa's cost. Everyone says it cheaper to get a visa in Accra or Kumasi. However, as I am based in Tamale it will cost me to get to Accra/Kumasi or use a travel agent. As such, I am trying to find out the cost of the visa at the boarder.
The specific visa I am interested in is a 12 month multi-entry visa.
I am travelling all thru West Africa - mid June for 3/4 weeks
Hoping that the tourist numbers will be down then - but rain & humidity not too high!
- is there any logic in travelling from the North or South 1st etc - to avoid the on-coming (& worsening) rain & humidity?
ie which countries are likely to be getting worst 1st?
Any places to avoid?
Grey skies make for poor photos too!
