i will try that but what if i travelled to ghana from kenya instead would i be able to do that and would it be easier
Expert:  UK_Lawyer replied 4 years ago.
You can travel to Ghana from Kenya. You will need to obtain a visa on arrival which is currently $50 us dollar for British nationals.

Your friend can come to visit you in Kenya, he does not require a visa.
Your friends passport needs to be valid for 6 months prior to travel.
Please see following link:

would i need my passport to travel to ghana from kenya and also all i need to do is obtain a visa at ghana airport to get into ghana and would that be the only document i need there?
Expert:  UK_Lawyer replied 4 years ago.
Sorry if I have confused you.

Yes you would need a visa to travel to Ghana. But not to travel to Kenya.

I would suggest you obtain a visa for Ghana from the UK before you travel.

Your friend would not need a visa to visit you in Kenya as he/she is a citizen of Ghana.

I would suggest the easiest way would be for you to travel to Kenya and tell your friend to visit you in Kenya.

I hope this answers your question.

Kind regards

but im sure you said i can obtain a visa when i get to ghana airport from kenya
Expert:  UK_Lawyer replied 4 years ago.
Sorry that was an error on my part.

British passport holders can obtain a visa upon entry to Kenya BUT would require a visa prior to traveling to Ghana.

I hope this answers your question. I apologise for the confusion.

Kind regards

im going to kenya on sunday but wasnt planning to go to ghana until i chatted to my friend today so is there a quicker way to get a visa or am i stuck
Expert:  UK_Lawyer replied 4 years ago.
There is no quick way I am afraid you need to obtain a visa via an appointment.

The best option for you would be to try and apply for a visa while you are in Kenya.

It would be easier for your friend to visit you from Ghana.

I hope this answers your question

Kind regards
