Ghanaians, like perhaps anyone else in any part of the world, travel the world over for reasons of pleasure, work or just for the sake of living in another country. The process involved in trying to get into some countries can be very arduous.
However, only recently, the Government of South Africa announced that Ghana is among a list of countries whose citizens do not need a visa to go there. This was well-received in Ghana.
South Africa joins a list other countries that were already had visa-free access to Ghanaians. YEN.com.gh compiles a list of these countries:
1. South Africa

Ghanaians can now visit the land Nelson Mandela and not requiring a visa to do so.
Indonesia is home to the world's biggest Muslim population. It is also one of the largest countries in Asia per population.
By sheer virtue of numbers, Indonesia has a very productive economy that offers opportunities to Ghanaians who might want to go there.

But Philippines is one of the most beautiful countries in the world. Tourism is one of the countries biggest foreign exchange earners.
4. Trinidad and Tobago
Trinidad and Tobago is a small Caribbean country. It is the home country of superstar musician, Nicki Minaj.
Tourism is T and T's biggest foreign exchange earner. Ghanaians might therefore like to go there for pleasure.
Senegal has been voted one of Africa's cleanest countries. It is also one of the fastest-growing countries in the world.
Senegal is not far from Ghana as both countries are in West Africa. This should make for shorter flights for Ghanaians who want to go there.
6. Cape Verde
Another of the West African countries, Cape Verde, is a collection of smaller islands on the west-coast of Africa. It is a tourist destination for s lot of Europeans and there is no reason it should not be Ghanaians too.

Ghanaians now have the chance to visit this internationally-adored country visa-free.
