Forex bureaus, as well as ATMs, are available at the airport and in these hotels.  Banks are generally open only from Monday to Friday (8 am – 4 pm) and Saturday morning, but ATMs are accessible 24/7.

If you need a visa for Ghana and there is a Ghanaian embassy in your country of residence, we recommend that you apply for a visa there; this will save you some time when you arrive at Accra airport.   Visas can, however, be issued on arrival for a fee of $150 if the option is selected on the registration form before February 22, 2019.
