Travelling From Nigeria To Dubai Via Ghana Cost Estimate

Since the suspension of flights operations between Nigeria and the United Arab Emirates, many travellers are exploring options on how to travel to Dubai or any of the United Arab Emirates states.

There are pressures everywhere especially those their job is on the line and those their visa will expire soon. Many of these people are considering travelling through Ghana as an option.

I am writing this to educate all on the best way to travel as someone that is staying in Nigeria. I know many want shortcut but the safest way is what I am going to discourse below. 

When the United Arab Emirates banned flights from Nigeria, they said that passengers that have been to Nigeria for more than 14 days will not be allowed to enter the UAE.

So, in other to enter the UAE as someone that has been to Nigeria for more than 14 days, you have to stay outside Nigeria for more than 14 days. Staying in Ghana for 14 days is one of the best things anyone can do.

Type of Transportation

I know due to the cost of a flight ticket from Nigeria to Ghana, many are considering road transportation. Here is the thing, road Transportation is complicated & is not advisable because your passport need to be stamped by the immigration officers at the Nigeria airport (stamp showing you’re leaving Nigeria) and another stamp at Accra, Ghana airport (a stamp showing the date you entered Accra, Ghana).

Many people that are using road transportation liaise with fake agents that will promise to backdate the stamp on the passport for a fee. 

That act is dangerous and we don’t encourage that. Many have been denied flight boarding at the airport because the stamp does not reflect on the airport immigration system.

Don’t be a victim. Use the right means of transportation which is Air transportation (flight).

You need a flight from Nigeria (Lagos or Abuja) to Accra, Ghana. The cost of Flight on Air Peace starts from NGN 80,000. Africa World Airline (AWA) flight cost from Lagos starts from NGN 100,000 while Abuja to Accra starts from NGN 90,000.

The cost of this flight depends on the date you booked your flight.

COVID-19 Test

You will need 3 Covid-19 tests.

  1. When you’re leaving Nigeria for Ghana, you need a covid-19 test. The cost of the covid-19 PCR test in Nigeria starts from NGN 29,500 depending on the lab you want to use.
