I was recently reading a news article about how difficult it is for Africans to visit other African nations because of strict visa policies. It was an enlightening article which led me to research on the countries I could visit within Africa as a Ghanaian without applying for visa or countries that would require me to pay for my visa on arrival.
I used the International Air Transport Association (IATA) website for my short research and out of the 54/55 countries, Ghanaians can visit 22 African nations without a visa and 9 countries with visa on arrival or eVisa. This means you would have to pay some money when you arrive or apply for eVisa.
The African countries include: Benin, Burkina Faso, Cape Verde, Cote d’Ivoire, Djibouti, Eswatini (formerly Swaziland), Gambia, Guinea, Guinea-Bissau, Kenya, Liberia, Madagascar, Mali, Mauritania, Mauritius, Niger, Nigeria, Rwanda, Senegal, Seychelles, Sierra Leone, Tanzania, Togo, Uganda, Zambia, Zimbabwe
15 of these countries are ECOWAS member states, of which Ghana is a member.
