2 min


The UK government has issued a travel warning to citizens travelling to Ghana for Christmas and it includes a surprise terrorism warning.

According to the UK government, terrorists are ‘likely’ to attack Ghana during this period thus citizens planning to visit should keep that in mind.

I wouldn’t know where they’re getting this nonsense from but the warning was issued via the official UK government website.

Foreign travel advice: Ghana

Around 90,000 British nationals visit Ghana every year. While most visits are trouble-free, crime does occur. In recent years, reported crime has increased, particularly over the Christmas period. Criminal activity ranging from petty street crime, to violent crime can occur at any time. Take sensible precautions. Be particularly vigilant in public areas, and take care when travelling by road. See Crime

It’s mandatory for all foreign nationals resident in Ghana to register with the National Identification Authority (NIA) of Ghana and get a non-citizen Ghana card. See Local laws and customs

Localised outbreaks of civil unrest can occur at short notice, and can become violent (sometimes involving weapons). If you’re in these areas, you should remain vigilant, exercise caution and follow the advice of local authorities. If this does happen, local police may impose curfews to contain the situation.

Terrorists are likely to try to carry out attacks in Ghana. Attacks could be indiscriminate, including in places visited by foreigners. See Terrorism

If you’re abroad and you need emergency help from the UK government, contact the nearest British embassy, consulate or high commission.
