Our Community of Expatriates in Accra Welcomes You!

Hello and a warm welcome to the InterNations Accra expat community! As a platform designed to serve expats in Accra and other areas of the world, InterNations is here to answer those burning questions you have about your big move. Whether your plans are set in stone or you're yet to finalize them, our community members can make your transition easier. Areas like the Airport Residential District, East Legon, and Spintex are popular among Accra expats, and with the help of our Accra Community you can find a reliable realtor. While medical care outside Accra is limited, public transport throughout Ghana is regular and reliable — these are just some facts that you can discover through our dedicated guide articles and in dialog with fellow expats who've been there and done that. With the friendly nature of Ghanaians thrown in, you'll soon find that Accra life is easy to settle into.

With InterNations, you never stand alone.

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.

InterNations is the largest global network for expatriates, with communities in 420 cities around the world. Meet fellow global minds in your city of residence or get to know local expatriates before you're moving or traveling abroad and never feel like a stranger. InterNations makes it easy for you to stay in touch with your expat friends, both online and offline, so you can grow your network of friends and contacts from all over the world. Whether they live in Shanghai or Riyadh, InterNations allows you to be close to them even if they are miles away.

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.

    Finding work in Ghana is not easy for an expat woman. InterNations members helped me get involved in a charity project.
