Hello friends, recently I got a job offer fro Ghana. I am not sure about the safety concerns if I bring my family along with me. 

1) Is Ghana very expensive for expats?

2) Is it safe to bring your family?

3) How big would be the expat community in Ghana?

 

Thanks in advance.

Hi there

Ghana is not typically considered an expensive expat destination, but extra security and healthcare costs can quickly add up. Have a look through our guides to safety and cost of living in Ghana for more detailed information. 

Hopefully, some other expats will be able to give you information on the local expat community, but our guide to expat experiences in Ghana might be a good starting point. 

Where will you be moving from?

I am not sure if you have already gone as I joined recently on the forum.

Standard of living defers from City to City and if you are planning on living in the capital then it'll be the most expensive city in Ghana.

If you are expecting to have the same life as where you are coming from, it'll also depend on what extras you have to put inplace to have that lifestyle.

Ghana is Safe and Peaceful in general with a few crime Hotspots
