What is the Zip/postal code for Ghana?
At this point i believe we must have learnt what a zip code, postal code and postcode means. But now what is the actual zip code for Ghana? The answer is GHANA HAS NO ZIP CODES OR POSTAL CODES. It is used in some African Countries like Nigeria, South Africa, Kenya etc but not in Ghana. That shouldn’t stop you from using a postal code, Most people have resorted to using 00233 or 23321. These are numbers they generated by themselves. while some people confuse themselves by using 233. Note 233 is not Ghana zip code or Postal code, It is Ghana International Calling Code which is only used in Ghana. I know that some of you will be asking what to use when filling a form online or when shopping online. you just have to use any code you like but i will suggest using 00233. the 233 is picked from the Ghana Calling code while the 00 means nothing. Mind you 00233 is not the real postal code but since you really need to input your zip or postal code in a form you just have to use anything.
