If you are moving to Ghana for a while, and have a shipment/container coming after your arrival, you will need to complete a "personal unaccompanied baggage declaration" form when you first enter the country. You will need to ask a customs officer to assist you in obtaining this form; unfortunately, it is not sitting out on a counter. The officer will ask you what you have coming, write the information down on the form, sign it and date it, and return the form to you. It is better to overestimate your belongings than to declare less than you ship. No money needs to be paid, or visas shown. If you forget to do this when you arrive, it is not critical but it is a bit of a nightmare to obtain this form after leaving the airport.
Many people bring their dogs and cats from abroad. See Pets Section for entry requirements and other helpful information and suggestions.
