One of the more stable West African nations, Ghana offers abundant opportunities for foreign investors. Its diverse economy, driven by sectors like agriculture, mining, and services, provides a solid foundation for growth. Recently, it has seen an economic boom from gold, cocoa, and oil.  With a skilled workforce and improving infrastructure, Ghana presents a favorable environment for those seeking to capitalize on its resources, strategic location, and potential for long-term returns.

Ghana Citizenship Investment

Ghana has no golden visa or citizenship by investment programme or residency by investment scheme in place and is generally considered a net exporter for investment migration. This means that more people emigrate from Ghana than immigrate to it. Countries like the United States, United Kingdom, Canada, and other European nations are common destinations for Ghanaians seeking better economic prospects, higher education, or simply a different lifestyle.

Ghana Passport Strength and Ranking

The introduction of a golden visa scheme to Ghana would not be much of a draw for foreign investors looking for visa-free travel due to Ghana’s poor passport. Ghana offers visa-free access to just 73 countries, accounting for only 9.8% of global travel and access to a mere 8.7% of global wealth (GDP). As such, it is ranked 157th in La Vida’s comprehensive Global Passport Ranking.
