The Ghana Card is a national identity card that is issued by the Ghanaian authorities to Ghanaian citizens – both resident and non-resident, and legally and permanently resident foreign nationals.
The government has revealed that this new card will be so ‘powerful’ that it will be used to do almost everything that requires proof of identity. In the meantime, it’s going to be used to access health care, authenticates one’s identity on a SIM card, passport acquisition, job search, education and a wide range of other things.
As it stands now, by March 31, 2022, any SIM that has not been registered with the Ghana Card will be blocked from the system and it will become invalid. We understand people are expected to pay ₵250 for the premium service.
However, some few centres have been opened providing free service for prospective clients. The National Identification Authority has announced the centres where everybody can go for Ghana Card for free.
