The headache of going on a quick vacation has always been a Visa.
A Visa is a document that makes one eligible to enter the country for which the visa has been issued. To answer your question simply, without a visa, no travel. That’s why it is important to start processing your visa, at least three months before your date of travel.
Sounds stressful, right? But efficient.
So what if there was another option?
Well, there is. A Visa on Arrival.
A Visa on Arrival simply means arriving in the country of your destination before obtaining the Visa. This means that you do not necessarily have to apply for the visa beforehand. Once you get there, your Visa is issued.
Although this sounds quite simple and stress-free, there is a “but” to it. Not all Countries have a Visa on Arrival.
Ghanaians are eligible to enter some chosen countries on this ‘Visa on Arrival’.
In this article, we’ll look at the top Visa on Arrival countries while considering a very moderate flight budget.
