To call outside of Ghana, you will need to dial 00 and the country code for the country you are calling. For example, if you were calling Toronto, Canada you would dial +1 647 234 5678. 1 is the country code, and 647 is the regional code.
You can purchase international calling cards to help reduce the price of calling abroad. These cards are often pre-paid and sold at a fixed price throughout the city.
Ghana's country code is +233.
Each region of the country then also has a regional code that must also be dialed.
To call a number in:
When calling from an international location, you will also drop the 0 that appears at the beginning of a phone number. It is only used for local calls.
For example, if this local number was provided 024 333 9999, you would dial +211 24 333 9999.
If you are calling locally, you will need to add the ‘truck number' ("0") in front of your call. Usually when someone provides you with their cell phone number, they will say this number as well.
Landlines are extremely rare in Ghana. Most people operate exclusively with a cell phone.
Vodaphone is the main provider of landlines. To obtain one, you will need to complete an application form, show proof of identity, proof of address and your visa/permit. You can chose either a pre-paid or post-paid option, and some will include options for internet service as well.
Public phones are extremely difficult to come by in Ghana.
If you establish a strong internet connection in your home, you may want to consider other ways of connecting.
If using services like Skype or FaceTime from your phone, be sure to keep an eye on your data usage. Often, these services will eat up your credit quite quickly, making them surprisingly expensive ways of communicating.
