Moving to Ghana!

Hello All,

I'm looking for some information from expats with first hand experience moving from North America to Accra. I want to make the move however I am struggling to find information while doing my research. Any information would be wonderful!

A little bit of information about me: I am 28 years old and currently living in the South Florida area. I am a Software Implementation Specialist. Safety is most important to me (and decent internet lol).

No problem with safety. 4G Internet is available if you intend to live in Accra but 3G is available throughout the country unless you are in a very remote area. It is expensive though as there are no truly unlimited packages

Thanks for the reply!

How would you say the housing and job market current are? Will I struggle to find housing at a reasonable cost? I'd probably be looking into buying rather than renting. As far as the job market, is it a struggle for expats to find a decent paying job?

Housing depends on budget and location I suggest you look at websites such as ghanafind or to find the sort of accommodation you require.
If you want a high paying job here you need to be recruited from overseas and get accommodation and benefits on top of your salary otherwise you are probably looking at around $1000 per month if you are lucky.
