I'm sure this has been asked before, but I can't find the relevant information anywhere.
I am looking at a fantastic NGO job in Ghana. Although I have spent extended periods abroad, this would be my as an expat. My boyfriend are in a committed relationship but do not currently have plans to get married -would getting married be a necessity in order for him to qualify as a dependent prior to our move?
What nationality are you and your boyfriend? Is it possible that he could find a job there too?
Unfortunately, you would need to be married for a dependent visa. Even if you did get married, there would be other requirements to fill such as proving that you'd have the means to support him, etc.
Although we don't have a section here on Expat Arrivals dedicated to dependent visas specifically, you might still find our page on Visas For Ghana useful anyway.
Best of luck!
I hope you are well. I came across your query and am currently in exactly the same situation! Did you end up moving to Ghana? (if so, I hope it all went smoothly and that you're enjoying your time there!). How did it go with visas?
All the best,Rachel
