The National Identification Authority (NIA) has planned to open more registration centres for issuing Ghana Cards beginning next week.
The new registration centres will run for six weeks from Monday, February 21, 2022, to Thursday, March 31, 2022.
Venues for the new registration will be the Accra Sports Stadium, El-Wak Sports Stadium (Premium Centre) in Accra, Kumasi Sports Stadium, Ghana National Fire Service (Regional Office) in Cape Coast and the Tamale Sports Stadium.
This was made known in a press statement signed and issued by the acting Head of Corporate Affairs of the NIA, Abudu Abdul-Ganiyu on Friday evening [February 18, 2022.
Apart from the El-Wak Sports Stadium in Accra, which will operate as a Premium Center, registration at all the other locations is free.
The new move, the statement explained was an intervention in response to the growing numbers of Ghanaians thronging NIA’s offices nationwide to register for the Ghana Card, particularly, as the deadline for Sim-Card re-registration approaches.
“The general public is reminded that household and institutional registration remain open,” it added.
The statement reminded persons who have already registered but have not received their cards to contact their respective district offices to be issued with their cards and should not attempt to register again as this “constitutes an offence punishable by law.”
