Zip Code of Ghana Accra | Postal codes: (Latest Update)

zip code of ghana accra

Zip code of Ghana Accra or Postal codes, what is it? Before we dig in further, let look at the history behind it. Postal codes were first introduced in Ghana on 18, October, 2017 after the launch of the National Digital Address System implementation (N.D.A.S). Within every area in Ghana, the digital address system assigns a specific unique address and postal codes to it. 

These addresses or codes are alphanumeric characters. The first two characters are the district postcode; taking Accra Ghana for instance which is “GA”. As you know already, Ghana is categorized into various regions. The first letter of every postal or zip code represents the region, Accra for example is “G”. The second character represents the district of the location of such address “A”. Remember am using Accra here as a reference. The full meaning of “GA” is Greater Accra. The other 3 to 5 characters represent the postcode of that area.

Ghana postal code

So all these three categories (Region code, district code, and the area postcode) together form the postal code. Let me give you a simple example to understand it. “Kwame Nkrumah Memorial park” located in Accra has the postal code of GA184. The “G” represents the region code (Greater Accra Region). The “A” represents the district postcode (Accra Metropolitan District) and lastly, the “184” represents the postcode area. If you still don’t get this explanation, please comment below, I will do my best and explain it further to you.

What is Zipcode?

The full meaning for Zip is (Zone Improvement Plan) codes are five or nine digits that are added to the postal address of every country. The main purpose of it is to help assist the sorting of mails more easily, to make it travel efficiently and fast. Whiles all other countries use the postal codes, zip code is used by the United State only.

Difference between Ghana Zip code and Postal codes or postcode

A lot of peoples struggle with this all the time. But there is no difference between the two on their purpose. The only difference is this, Zipcode is used by the United States only whiles Postal codes are commonly used in other countries. I personally get suck most of the time when my friends ask me “Hey, Justice I am doing online shopping, can you tell me the Zip code for Ghana Accra?”  If you have searched for such a question before, don’t worry you will get your answer right after this article (zip code of Ghana Accra).

So let see…

What is the zip code for Ghana?

This is a very trending question by Ghanaians. Each and every month peoples searched the web almost 10* to find the answer to Ghana zip code. The real truth is, Ghana has no zip code. But that shouldn’t stop you from shopping online on platforms that require you to enter your country zip code. Mostly, if you have ever tried creating a PayPal account yourself, you would have noticed the requirement to enter your zip code in one of the input boxes.

But does this mean that if Ghana doesn’t have a zip code we can’t create a PayPal account? No, we can, and am a prove of it. I have a PayPal account myself to which I have created some for others in Ghana here. Most people use either 00233 or 23321, they think these are the zip code for Ghana, no. These numbers were generated by themselves. Since it is five digits the system accepts it because it is not used by any location or country. But 00233 is the country code for Ghana. Every country has its own calling code which is not the same as the zip code.


What zip code should I use for Ghana?

What is the zip code of Ghana Accra or postal code? We do use 00233 as the zip code for Ghana. But remember am not proving this to be right. Here is the analogy. Every country has its own calling code which you need to dial to make a call to that specific country. For Ghana we have a calling code of “233” and an International Direct Dialing (I.D.D) of) 00 prefix. What we do is to combine the two to get the zip code of Ghana making 00233, which is Ghana calling code combined with Ghana International Direct Dialing prefix. Remember am not proving this to be right, because as at now the country doesn’t have a proven zip code.

But in case you are filling any online form like that of shopping. You have no option than to generate some digit for yourself. So you can safely use 00233 for all your online transactions where the postal code or zip code is mandatory for all locations in Ghana. Remember, that digit will not be used to specify Ghana by the system because it can’t find Ghana to be the zip code for the country.  So in such a case, the location you provide will be what the system will use.

For example. When you are shopping on amazon you have these required input fields: Country name, city, zip code. So with this Amazon system will not use the zip code as your address. But rather it will use that of the country name and the city together with other requirements you may provide.
