Conference participants will be met at the Kotoka International Airport, Accra by a reception committee. It is important that delegates register as far in advance as possible, indicating by fax, telex, e-mail or letter the date of their arrival, flight number and airline and whether they will be accompanied.
A modern international airport connects Accra to many overseas destinations. In addition to the national airline, Ghana Airways, other international airlines operate services to Accra. Land travel can be made to other major cities in Ghana by hired Self-Drive Cars, Chauffeur Driven Cars, Mini Touring Buses, Inter-city Buses and unmetered Taxis.
Exchange & Banking Service
Ghana's currency is the cedi (¢) which comes in denominations of 100, 200, 500, 1,000, 2,000, 5,000. Foreign currency can be freely exchanged at any Forex Bureaux in the country. Apart from Forex Bureaux, some commercial banks also exchange foreign currency. Banks are normally open from 8.30a.m - 2.00pm, Monday through Thursday and until 3.00pm on Friday. All banks and Forex Bureaux accept Travellers' cheques although the rate of exchange may be slightly lower than for a cash transaction. The most widely accepted credit cards are American Express, Diners and Visa. Your card may be used for payment at nearly all airlines, leading hotels and major supermarkets.
A wide range of hotel accommodation from five-star to budget category one-star hotels is located close to the Accra International Conference Centre.
Various categories of restaurants and food stalls are easy to find in Ghana. All hotels have restaurant facilities which serve various types of international dishes ranging from Western and Asian to African specialities.
The Secretariat presents its compliments and has the honour to inform participants who do not have Ghana Diplomatic Mission in their country that, they can obtain their visa on arrival at the airport at the fee of $100 (one hundred dollars) per visitor.
