In view of this, these countries have recognised in terms of travel that the stipulations for visas are sometimes a deterrent for tourists and those seeking to establish businesses. They hence find it fairly complicated.

Africa is growing and Ghana has not been an exemption.

The Minister of Foreign Affairs and Foreign Trade Senator for Barbados, Dr Jerome Walcott, recently said, “We recognise that Africa, a continent of 54 countries, many of them showing growth rates of five, six, and seven per cent, in terms of Rwanda, it is time for us to look more closely at that continent.”  

So, if you ever dreamt of travelling and discovering new cultures and nationalities in different parts of the world, then now is the time.

It is important to have an international passport if you do not have one yet, as now you can see the list of visa-free countries for Ghana passport holders. It is also advisable to contact the embassy of the country of your destination before you fly there to make sure if you may need a return ticket to enter the country or not, as such regulations can sometimes change from time to another.
