NATIONWIDE GENERATION OF DIGITAL ADRESSES AND TAGGING OF PROPERTIES
Ghana Post is embarking on a nationwide digital address generation and property tagging exercise. Our field agents are moving from house to house with valid Identification cards and branded Ghana Post GPs costumes. Our field agents are required to generate digital addresses for everyone and tag properties for individuals and organizations upon request. The general public is hereby informed that generation of the digital address is free, but tagging of properties attracts a fee.
Ghana Post wishes to appeal to community leaders (chiefs, queen mothers, assemblymen, youth groups, etc.) and households to give accredited agents the needed assistance in the discharge of their duties.

The Digital Address system is providing an effective means of addressing every location and property to facilitate the implementation of key government policies and business transactions. Ghana Post therefore encourages citizens who have not yet generated digital address for their homes and offices to do so.
Citizens are encouraged to tag their properties to;
â€¢ Enhance visibility and identification
â€¢ Enable business and service providers to locate you easily
â€¢ Enhance home delivery
The digital address is a requirement to acquire a national ID card. In addition, citizens should remember to give their digital addresses to NADMO, Ghana National Fire Service, Ghana Ambulance Service and other emergency service providers for easy location and assistance when the need arise.
