Accra Expat Guide
Start Your New Life as an Expat in Accra
With a bustling market, beautiful beaches, and stunning natural parks nearby, Accra is a delightful West African city for expats to settle into. The mining, oil, gas, and shipping industries are all thriving, and each one acts as an ideal source of work for Accra expatriates. Once you've found the work that'll fund your new lifestyle, you'll be pleased to learn that rental prices are low, and so is the cost of fresh food. Restaurants in the local area serve traditional African fare, western delicacies, and everything in between. Head to Simret for Ethiopian cuisine or Mamma Mia for mouth-watering pizzas. As English is the primary language here, you can easily find a school within the public system. For those who favor a private education for their kids, plenty of international schools are on offer, too.
The Social Network for Expatriates in Accra
InterNations is a dedicated community of expatriates in Accra and around the world who are willing to share their experiences with you. Our knowledgeable members can answer questions like "do I need to protect myself against malaria?" and "how do I get a visa?". They'll soon point you in the direction of DEET and anti-malarial medication, and they may even give you advice on dealing with the Ghanaian embassy. As our members have experienced life as expatriates in Accra for themselves, they are a source of invaluable wisdom. You can meet some of them by attending our regular InterNations Official Events or our member-led events that cover a range of activities, from business networking opportunities to a joint cinema visit.
