Thank you for using this service. I'll do my best to answer your questions as completely and honestly as I can. All I ask in return is that you give me a positive rating for my customer service. This is the only way I get credit for assisting you. If you feel the need to use "poor service" or "bad service," please ask follow-up questions instead, so that I can try to help you further. Please remember that the law sometimes does not have a satisfactory solution for your issue; unfortunately, this is something I cannot control.

NO! That is not correct. There is no such thing as a Basic Travel Allowance to be able to travel out of Ghana. This is part of a scam, where the person claims to be from Ghana, claims to need a visa and requests money for it, then when they are supposedly about to "leave" Ghana, they are stopped and forced to show a Basic Travel Allowance of cash on hand to be allowed on the plane to travel. I hear about one of these scams at least once a week.

If you really want to make sure it is a scam, call the embassy in Ghana directly, and ask them to confirm if a Basic Travel Allowance is required. Do no ask this "nurse" for the contact information to the embassy. She or he will give you a fake number where you will reach some random person who will ":confirm" the Basic Travel Allowance.

Here is information on the scam of the Basic Travel Allowance, provided by the Immigration Service of Ghana: http://www.ghanaimmigration.org/NOTICE.htm

DO NOT, UNDER ANY CIRCUMSTANCES, SEND ANY MONEY TO THIS PERSON.

I hope I have answered your questions. Keep in mind that I only get credit for my work if you rate me positively. If you're satisfied with my answer and my professionalism - not the outcome or the state of the law which I cannot control - please select a top-three rating. Again, if you feel the need to use "poor service" or "bad service," please ask follow-up questions instead, so that I can try to help you further. Remember that the bottom two negative ratings are used for Experts or professionals who are rude and/or bad at their job, and I'm confident you'll find me to be professional and truthful with you.

A bonus is appreciated, if you feel I've earned it.
