American Expat Reveals 10 Important Things to Know Before Moving to Ghana

Are you thinking about living or moving to Ghana? In this article, you will learn 10 important things to consider before settling in West Africa from a black American expat currently living in Ghana.

John, along with his wife and 5 kids, moved to Ghana from Connecticut to get away from the pressures of America and reinvent themselves in a new, different environment.

They started a blog called Native Borne and share their travel tips on their Youtube Channel.

Here are the 10 tips for expats to know before moving and living in Ghana:

Be Patient

It’s important to take your time and adapt to the culture in Ghana. Give yourself at least 6 months to 1 year before you make any major plans.

Create Passive Income

Many expats come to Ghana with lots of capital (money) but little to no passive income. Income is crucial to maintaining a high quality of life in Africa.

Stay in a Safe Neighborhood with Proper Security

Only live in an area with proper security that checks the name and ID of any visitor. Avoid living in places with little to no security.

Secure Your Belongings

Make sure all of your doors and windows are locked. Put bars on your windows for added safety. There are many horror stories of people climbing through windows at night to steal valuables. Beware!

Maintain a Balanced Western-Local Lifestyle

It’s important to not spend all your money trying to maintain a standard western lifestyle at first (unless you are well off financially). The best strategy is a mix between western and local living.

Be Willing to Sacrifice for Success

Sometimes, you may go through hard times but be willing to stand your ground and sacrifice if it’s your dream to live in Ghana (or anywhere in the world).

Start Your Own Business

Starting your own business is a great way to increase your income and support yourself overseas. You can sell anything that is legal, has a ready market, and earns enough money to justify your time investment.

Start a Youtube Channel

Youtube is a great way to educate your followers, help people and earn a comfortable living. Many vloggers earn a full time income by uploading videos to Youtube regularly.

Don’t Expect Family or Friends To Help You With Your Journey

Family or friends may judge you for moving to a different country and say no when you ask for financial support. They may envy you or think you are making a mistake by leaving home. Don’t expect them to help you in times of need so always have a backup plan.

Live Below Your Means

Create a monthly budget that’s less than your monthly income and live below your means. Only increase your standard of living once you increased your income and become more financial stable.
