Since not everyone have access to the Ghana card, the National Identification Authority (NIA) have also explained how such persons can re-register their sims.

According to him, the exercise will commence with over 15.5 million Ghanaians with the National Identification Cards while persons who do not have the cards will be given a special opportunity to acquire the cards.

“15.5 million people have their cards already so those 15.5 million people can go and register their SIM cards when the process begins. But the rest who do not have it will be catered for.  We have divided the population into two. For those who are 15 years and above, we have captured about 84%.

“So the rest can go to the district and regional offices. All Ghanaians, 15 and above who did not get their Ghana card can go to the NIA offices anywhere and get registered.”

“We will also register those who are younger and under 15, so they will also be able to access the service. But as the Honourable Minister communicated, this will be over a period up to December 31st, so all those who desire to get the Ghana card can go and get it from any of our offices. It is free,” he said.

What happens when you fail to re-register your sim

After December 31, 2021, all subscribers who fails to go through but re-registration of their sim will have them blocked.
