Ghana Post in collaboration with the Government of Ghana and the Ministry of Communications, in line with Government’s commitment to transform and formalize the economy has brought this innovation to all Ghanaians and foreign residents alike. The National Identification Project is the second most important process of formalizing the economy. The digital addresses is a key requirement during registration of citizens and residents.

Digital Addressing will now be the single most important tool for all citizens to locate government departments, business partners, friends and relatives accurately and quickly. This new addressing system will change the way we do things forever and will therefore lead to a formalized economy as well as change the entire business landscape.

GhanaPostGPS is a “home-grown” location based system which provides the most effective means of addressing every location. The whole of Ghana has been mapped and every location has a Digital Address. The Addressing system is nationally integrated and it will house a comprehensive database of all properties in the country.

The new Post Code Range is based on the regional telephone codes used by the erstwhile Post & Telecommunications, where 02 was for Greater Accra, 05 for Ashanti and 09 for Volta, etc. Ghana Post by this has set the stage for commercial focus for the country.

The location system comes with all the necessary security protections including but not limited to a privacy policy protected by the Data Protection Act 843, fortified architecture, various access level controls and an inter-ministerial data privacy committee that will monitor and ensure the security of the entire system.

Ghana Post encourages all citizens and residents of Ghana to get their digital addresses with post codes now.

We look forward to bringing efficient product and services to your doorstep through the digital addressing system.
