What Is Zip Code Or Postal Code?

The postal code is a scheme that assigns to different zones or places of a country a code that serves to facilitate and mechanize the routing of a piece of mail.

It is usually a series of digits. Although in some countries they include letters.

It is also used in GPS navigators to locate places.

The modern system postal coding was first introduced in Ukraine, which was a member of the USSR in 1932 but abandoned in 1939.

Germany started using the postal code in 1941, followed by Argentina in 1958, the United Kingdom (UK) in 1959, the United States in 1963, and Switzerland in 1964.

The vast majority of the state postal services in the world use postal codes. However, there are countries where zip codes or postal codes do not exist.

Countries such as Ireland and territories such as Gibraltar or Hong Kong are so small in size that the implementation of the postal code in them is unnecessary.

Ghana Postcode, Ghana Postal Code, And Ghana Zip Code – What Is The Difference?

Since zip code and postal code have the same purpose, the actual difference between zip codes.

And the postal code is that the term Zip code is used in the United States of America (USA), whereas Postal code is used in other countries.

Hence Zip code for the USA is the most appropriate term as compared to postal code.

This means that it is more appropriate to say the Ghana Postal Code instead of the Ghana Zip Code.

On the other hand, postcode and postal code refer to the same thing.

So for the rest of this post, zip code, postcode, and postal code will be used interchangeably to mean the same thing.

Postal codes have different formats and rules of use, depending on the country.

In most of Europe, the postal code goes before the name of the place or city and sometimes preceded by the country code.

Meanwhile, in the Anglophone countries (of which Ghana is part), it usually goes after the name of the place.

Although postal codes are usually assigned to geographical areas, some identify individual institutions that receive large amounts of mail.

Some of these include government agencies, large companies, television networks, etc.

Does Ghana Have A Zip OR Postal Code?

Ghana first adopted the postal code system on the 18th of October 2017 after the Ghana Post launched the National Digital Address System.

Ghana’s postal codes are alphanumeric and are unique to every 5 meter square in Ghana.

Before the launch of the GhanaPost GPS, Ghanaians were using 00233 and 23321 as Ghana’s zip codes.

Though not internationally recognized, the zip codes 00233 and 23321 were widely used in filling an online form where zip codes or postal codes are required.

Even after two(2) years of the official launch of the GhanaPost GPS and the introduction of the official Ghana postal codes, most people in Ghana use the 00233 and 23321 for their zip codes.

Examples of zip codes in Ghana are GA078, AK-039-5028, CC453, WS857.

What Is The Zip Code For Accra?

For the zip code GA078, GA represents Accra Metropolitan District, and the 078 is the area code for Gold Coast City in Accra.

It implies that the postal code for Tema or Adenta will follow the same pattern since they are in the Greater Accra region.

What Is The Postal Code For Kumasi?

For the zip code AK-039-5028, A represents the Ashanti region, K is the Kumasi District, 039 is the sub-district in Kumasi.

The last 4-digits 5028 represents the unique address within the postal code.

The postal code with the unique address comes together to make up the unique identity of the area, which is the digital address, zip code, or postal code.

  1. It is very clear to me now. I was confused about the whole thing about ZIP code and POSTAL code. But please I stay at Accra and if I use my Ghana post GPS address for my zip code the website reject it unless I use the 00233 for that one it works. Is there any way to use the GPS address?

    1. Hi Amofa, Thanks you found it helpful. For now the Ghana Post GPS address is not recognized on most e-commerce platforms so it would be best to stick with the 00233.

    1. Thanks for passing by. The codes +233 and 00233 are the Ghana country codes which are different from the postal or zip code. Hope that helps.

  2. Exceptional information. This meas the calling code and postal code are the same. I think this is the time for more public education on the Ghana Post GPS.

  3. I’m very happy to find this great blog. I have learned a lot from this piece. Zipcodes are a bit dicey to understand.

  4. Thanks for the information. I have 1 question. What is the address code, and is that different from zipcode and postal code?

  5. I was filing a form online and I saw area code, is that the same as zip code? should I use the 00233 as you suggested or i should just enter the +233 because in some fields I can see some people are also recommending the +233. please help me.

  6. I dont know if the zip code for Tema is different. i tried using the code for Ghana but it keeps rejecting.
    Any help!

  7. Hi Abrokwa. Am Joseph from Obuasi, I was shipping my parcel from the US and in the shipping address i was to provide a zip code. Because I wanted the item delivered to my location, i used the GPS address. Is this anything wrong with that? Please kindly help me.

  8. Dumo Asechemie

    A very informative post. Thank you author for this article. You have really helped a lot of lives. Stay blessed.

  9. Please i am filling a passport form manually and not online but i am asked to write the Zip/Post Code so which code should I use.

    1. Hi Eben,

      Like I explained in the post, you can use either +233 or 00233 as the ZIP Code or Postal Code for Ghana.

      Because you are filling the form manually, I suggest you use 00233 as the ZIP Code.

  10. Christopher Mensah

    I am filling a form online and am asked to input my zip code so I dial the +233 but I was asked to put a valid postal code so I need your help.

    1. Hi Christopher,

      Have you tries 00233? If you haven’t done that then enter that code and let me know if it works for you.

      Looking forward to a positive reply.
