I’m currently planning my trips for the summer and applying for visa is my WORST nightmare. I honestly love being Ghanaian, from my accent, the way I look, the way I express myself with the ah’s and oh’s and ei’s, and everything else associated with being Ghanaian, but the one thing that officially identifies me internationally as a Ghanaian is really killing my vibe.

Imagine being able to travel all over the world without ever needing to apply for a visa, not paying for visa fees and not to mention priority fees when you need to travel urgently, avoiding the long queues and the awkward silences at application centres that come with the occasional outbursts of anger from the man in the suit who is running late for his next meeting, the anxiety of not knowing the status of your visa after paying sums of money that are non refundable and worst part, not getting the visa after going through all this stress! If this is your reality bless you, if not i feel your pain.
