I am currently living in abidjan. The country is very friendly interm of it characteristics bussiness wise.. and i guess it will be very good for you to start a business that is rare over here and is popular in nigeria ( experience).. besides which business do you wanna do ova here??




from ur response I think you know more about business in that country... pls what kind of business thrive most over there... though am into sales of women clothing and accessories, I can easily adjust to fit any thriving business there... myself and my family are contemplating on relocating to Ivory Coast this month end. tnks
Re: Any Nairalander In Abidjan? by oyek691: 2:25pm On Jul 10, 2016
@ayabahiper. I think your business will survive very well over here if you locate your shop to places like adjame( this is where i am living). And i will like it if you do your business on a very large scale, because they like big shops over here. God help you

@folakemi. Sorry i dont think you can get jobs over here without speaking french. And to increase your odds of getting jobs you should have experince.( even 1 year) But dont worry i guess you can work in companies such as african development bank e.t.c
But you need french

Your international passport and yellow fever card..

If you don't have one, just hold extra money on you, like 11000 CFA I think, you will be immunized at Elubo.
However, I strongly advise that you do it here in Nigeria

okay that's good. But you don't realy need an international passport to cross any west African border.. especially Lagos - Abidjan. Just hold small money like 5k for border crossing bribery.. and if you already have a passport, then goodluck. But i advice you to always tender your I.D card only.. be it Student I.d or worker I.D card.. you are good to go .. because you might be delayed at the border when it comes to passport stamping.. those who show their I.D card, with/without Yellow Vaccination Card (not realy necessary ) cross the border fast .

You might get injected for immunisation at the ghana/Ivorycoast border. .. and you can as well pay for that tp avoid it, but its not advisable

In addition to Ugosample's comment, Young Shall Grow Transport (YSG) is the fastest.. but if you want to feel like a virtual tuorist the you can also try going to benin, then at cotonou, yo can try UTB TRANSPORT. UTB is the best transport to Ivory Coast after STC. the Utb is owned by the Ivoirians themselves so its easy and cool. Price Range of all travel stuff from Nigeria to Ivory Coast is 15,000 - 20,000 Naira.

And another Option for all is if your city is close to Ejigbo. A town in Osun State. you can go from lagos or Ibadan to Ejigbo very easily. So Ejigbo is the home to Travels to Abidjan the price is the cheapest. just 10k and hold 2k to cross.. thats all.

They have many buses and giant marcoplos.. too many transportation schemes that goes to Cotonou, Lome, Accra and Abidjan every Sundays, Wesdays and Thursdays.

So back to your question on tge the travel duration in ghana:

Ghana is just a 12hour journey. From aflao to elubo. If you leave Lomé, Togo at 5pm (evening) then you'll reach the ghana/Ivorycoast border at 5:00 - 5:30am (second day morning).

I will break it down for you. How i used to travel w/africa... read my next post.

How My Duration of Travel from Lagos to Abidjan is, at a Glance:

* NIGERIA – BENIN REPUBLIC (4 hours including wait time at Seme)
•from Mile 2- Motor Park or Agege, or Maza Maza (if going from Ejigbo, the include 2-3 hours.
•Badagry
•Seme Border
•Cotonou

* BENIN REPUBLIC -- TOGO (1 hour)
• Cotonou
• Ouidah
•Hillacondji Border
•Lome

* TOGO – GHANA (3 hours)
•Aflao Border
•Accra
• Koumassi

* GHANA – IVORY COAST (12 hours)
•Takoradi
•Elubo Border
• Grand Bassam
•Abidjan

NIGERIA – BENIN REPUBLIC (4 hours including wait time at Seme)
*Seme border had the longest wait time and could take over an hour to get through numerous checkpoints
*Other borders typically take 10mins to get through
*I only listed few main Cities along the journey. you'll get across many cities towns as well as villages.
* another option which I love is.. 2-luxury bus companies can get you to Abidjan- ABC Transport from Lagos to Accra & STC Buses from Accra to Abidjan.

Check out this map. It would help with the illustration.
