    Starting May 1, 2010 Ghana National Communications Authority announces a major overhaul of its fixed telephone numbering plan. Most area codes change and most local numbers are added 1 to 3 digits. The goals of the changes:

    -reducing the number of geographic area codes from over 50 to only 10 regional area codes
    -standardizing the length of all fixed numbers (all becoming 9 digit)

    Here are the old and new national number formats respectively:

    • 21 ?????? becomes 30 2??????
    • 22 ?????? becomes 30 3??????
    • 251 ????? >> 34 30?????
    • 31 ????? >> 31 20?????
    • 342 ????? >> 31 21?????
    • 345 ????? >> 31 22?????
    • 362 ????? >> 31 23?????
    • 372 ????? >> 33 22?????
    • 392 ????? >> 31 24?????
    • 394 ????? >> 31 25?????
    • 395 ????? >> 31 26?????
    • 41 ????? >> 33 20?????
    • 42 ????? >> 33 21?????
    • 432 ????? >> 33 23?????
    • 51 ????? >> 32 20?????
    • 531 ????? >> 32 21?????
    • 561 ????? >> 32 22?????
    • 565 ????? >> 32 23?????
    • 567 ????? >> 35 26?????
    • 568 ????? >> 35 27?????
    • 572 ????? >> 32 24?????
    • 582 ????? >> 32 25?????
    • 61 ????? >> 35 20?????
    • 632 ????? >> 35 21?????
    • 642 ????? >> 35 22?????
    • 648 ????? >> 35 23?????
    • 652 ????? >> 35 24?????
    • 653 ????? >> 35 25?????
    • 71 ????? >> 37 20?????
    • 715 ????? >> 37 21?????
    • 716 ????? >> 37 22?????
    • 717 ????? >> 37 23?????
    • 72 ????? >> 38 20?????
    • 742 ????? >> 38 21?????
    • 743 ????? >> 38 22?????
    • 744 ????? >> 37 24?????
    • 746 ????? >> 37 25?????
    • 752 ????? >> 37 26?????
    • 756 ????? >> 39 20?????
    • 81 ????? >> 34 20?????
    • 832 ????? >> 34 21?????
    • 842 ????? >> 34 31?????
    • 846 ????? >> 34 23?????
    • 848 ????? >> 34 24?????
    • 858 ????? >> 34 25?????
    • 863 ????? >> 34 26?????
    • 872 ????? >> 34 27?????
    • 876 ????? >> 34 28?????
    • 882 ????? >> 34 29?????
    • 91 ????? >> 36 20?????
    • 931 ????? >> 36 21?????
    • 935 ????? >> 36 22?????
    • 936 ????? >> 36 23?????
    • 953 ????? >> 36 24?????
    • 962 ????? >> 36 25?????
    • 966 ????? >> 36 26?????
    • 968 ????? >> 30 35?????

    One example: former Accra telephone numbers of the format 21 ?????? become 30 2??????. In other words area code 21 becomes 30 and digit 2 is added to the local number.

    The 10 resulting area codes by region are:

    • Ashanti - 32
    • Brong Ahafo - 35
    • Central - 33
    • Eastern - 34
    • Greater Accra - 30
    • Northern - 37
    • Upper East - 38
    • Upper West - 39
    • Volta - 36
    • Western - 31
