NIA: Over 16.9 million Ghanaians have registered for Ghana Cards

Over 16.9 million Ghanaians have so far been registered for the Ghana Card as at 13 July 2022, the National Identification Authority (NIA) has said.

“We have issued 16,674,131. As at 13 July, we had uncollected cards of 895,140. It is important to contrast this with the situation before February 2017 where only 4,554,520 Ghanaians have been registered between 2008 July and February 2017,” he told sit-in host Benjamin Offei-Addo.

Attafuah added, “Only 2, 719, 425 cards had been printed and 900,000 cards had been issued between 2008 and 2017 February.”

Ghana Card as e-passport

Meanwhile, the Ghana Airports Company Limited (GACL) has informed airlines that the Ghana Card will from 1 March 2022, be recognised as an international travelling identity document, otherwise called e-passport for all Ghanaian holders travelling to Ghana.

The latest step by the GACL paves the way for airports and airlines to start recognising the Ghana Card as an e-passport.
