I'm looking to buy beach front property in Ghana but I am concerned about the legality of buying property as a foreigner, as well as about being granted residency status.
I would not be able to live there for 10 years straight at any point what are my options if any?
From what I've read, there are different types of land in Ghana, which can make property ownership a complex process. In some instances, foreigners are able to own property but not the land that the property sits on. There are some real estate agencies that focus on the expat market. They're better equipped to brief you on the ins-and-outs of buying in the country.
This Expat Arrivals page on Visas for Ghana might have some useful information.
Alternatively, leeway seems to be given to those who plan to either start or invest in a business in Ghana.
