Ghana 90 day visa entry validity questionHi there - the Ghana High Commission in Canada (where I live) states that they issue both single entry and multiple entry tourist visas. The single entry visa has to be used within 90 days of issue. It's going to be VERY tight getting from Canada to Ghana the way I want to do it within 90 days. It's not exactly clear (and I haven't called them yet to ask), but it would appear that a multiple entry visa gives the traveler 180 days to make the first entry. Much better, but it's also dramatically more expensive ($260 - ouch).
My question is: how strict are the immigration people re: entering within the 90 days after issue? If I have a valid visa that I got from my own country and show up after 100 days, say, are they going to let me in? Are they going to notice? Would it make any difference entering with an expired visa by land vs. by air? Anyone have any experience with this issue?
Thanks a million. It's frustrating that many West African countries make it so tough on travelers who are moving around, away from their own countries on longer multi-country trips.

4Hi, once you have a single visa for 90 days, the immigration shorten your stay to the end of your stay you relly want. they shorten it to 60 days at maximum. In the aircraft the flight attantants distribute immigration forms. My advise: prolong your really stay for some days (as reserve!). It was useful for me in 2010 when the volcanic ash cloud disrupted the airtraffic over Europe. Even I delayed to get home. But immigration officers cat fine you at embarcation because of overstaying. For look I lyed in the form.
