Ghana Visa Requirements
Ghana is a very friendly country, ideal for first time travelers to Africa. The people are generally very helpful and welcoming. While their laid back attitude and lack of organized tourist sights/trips can be a little annoying to begin with, before you have been there for very long you realize that it is one of the delights of this country. Tourism in Ghana is growing very quickly, and more tour operators are seeing increased requests for Ghana as a travel destination. Ghana is also rich in gold. This is a stable country with great potential for growth though much more needs to be done in terms of its infrastructure.
Ghana, a country on West Africa’s Gulf of Guinea, is famous for diverse wildlife, old temples and subtropical beaches, like in Busua. Ghana visa application and support from Travis Visa Service is fast and reliable. Coastal cities Elmina and Cape Coast include posubans (indigenous shrines), colonial buildings and castles-turned-museums that function as testimonials to the slave trade. North of Cape Coast Kakum National Park includes a walkway across the rainforest.
