Persons seeking to re-register their SIM cards can now resort to a self-service registration application which will be made available on both Android and IOS platforms next week.
The Minister of Communications and Digitalisation, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful made this known during a press briefing on Sunday, July 31, 2022.
She said registration via the app will attract a GH¢ 5 charge.
“The SIM Registration App will be available for download on both android and IOS this week barring any unforeseen circumstances. Each registration via the app will be subject to a 5-cedi surcharge.”
She said the app had to be introduced in light of the challenges confronting the sim card re-registration process.
At the presser, the Minister announced an extension of the deadline for the SIM card re-registration to September 30.
She also indicated that “non-resident Ghanaians who do not have the Ghana card can use their passports to complete the process but will be required to update their details with the Ghana card once they acquire it.”
“They have up to December 2022 to do so. I urge them to comply with these directives and to contact the NCA if they have any peculiar challenges.”
The Minister also extended the deadline for sim re-registration to December
All visitors to Ghana can now acquire SIMS with their passports.
Ghanaians on official assignments outside the country or students on scholarships who cannot acquire the Ghana card by December have been asked to contact the National Communication Authority for assistance.
