next summer I'm going to Ghana and I will spend there 4 weeks volunteering in a hospital, after these weeks I have 8 days free. I was thinking that it would be nice to travel to Togo. But, my flight to home is from Accra, so it means that I have to come back to Ghana.
I'm from Spain and the visa it's 60€ for only one entry and 200€ for multientry. I think that's very expensive. I have been thinking about what to do to make it cheaper and I thought that I could have the "one entry visa", then going to Togo and when I'm on Togo I can make another visa for Ghana. Do you think that it's easy?
Thank you so much, and sorry for my English, I have to improve it ;)

1It has not been easy during the past couple of years to get a Ghana visa outside your own country. In fact it has been almost impossible. That seems to be changing now, but it is hard to predict whether you will be able to do this in Lomé by next summer. In any case, it will probably not be the way you want to spend your limited holiday--hanging around in a hot, crowded capital city trying to negotiate a visa.
Get the multiple entry in advance and try to remember that it's not so expensive compared to your airfare or taking time off work at home.
Hope that's helpful.

3Hi, i just (ending Nov. 2012) applied for Ghana visa. Nowadays they ask for "Invitaion letter" from a host living there. After my request, they responded, that it is a new rule from the president. I think, it is because of the presidendial election on 7.12.2012.
I know from someone that it was not like that one month before!!!
I was really shocked about the visa rejection. I had to activate my fellows-in-law there to fax this invitation letter. It was never been so like this before! I am going there annually since 18 years!
I sent my passport + forms to the embassy again an keep waiting.
