‘Don’t Be Eager To Travel Abroad, Wait For The Right Time’ – Dubai-based Ghanaian Lady Advises

Anita, a Ghanaian resident in the United Arab Emirates (UAE), has shared valuable advice with her fellow Ghanaians about traveling abroad. She urges them to be patient and wait for the right time before seeking opportunities in foreign countries.

During an interview with Citizen Coman TV, Anita cautioned against being overly eager to travel, especially influenced by how life abroad is portrayed by people in the diaspora. She emphasizes that while traveling can be beneficial, it is essential to avoid rushing into it. Instead, individuals should make sure their decision to travel is well-informed and genuine. She advises conducting thorough research, especially if considering a move to the UAE.

Regarding life in the UAE capital, Dubai, Anita suggests that it is more suitable for spending holidays rather than moving there solely for work opportunities. She praises the beauty and attractiveness of Dubai as a tourist destination, but she cautions that pursuing a profession there should be based on direct contracts rather than relying on agents.

Anita’s advice comes at a time when many Ghanaians are considering migration as a means to seek better prospects. According to data from the NGO Child Rights International, between 2020 and 2021, 55% of children between the ages of 12 and 17 expressed their desire to travel abroad for various reasons, including better economic opportunities, education, and improved living standards.

Ghana’s economy has faced significant challenges, including hyperinflation, over the years. According to WorldData, the average annual inflation rate in Ghana from 1965 to 2022 was reported to be 27.5%.

In conclusion, Anita’s message emphasizes the importance of making informed decisions about traveling abroad and not being swayed solely by the allure of a better life elsewhere. She advises her fellow Ghanaians to consider all aspects before making such a significant decision.
