Regular Registration For Ghana Card Free, GH¢250 For Premium Service - NIA
The National Identification Authority has clarified that the GH¢250 fee for the Ghana Card registration is only for applicants seeking premium services. Responding to viral posts suggesting that all applicants had to also pay GH¢250, the authority’s acting Head of Corporate Affairs, Abudu Abdul-Ganiyu, assured that there was a
free option for all Ghanaians seeking the Ghana Card. This write-up is erroneous, it seeks to misinform the the general public and I come your way to reiterate that even beyond the mass registration, registration that will be taking place at our regional and district offices will be free for all Ghanaians, he said. A GH¢30 fee will only
be required for the replacement of the Ghana Cards or when an update requires that a new card is printed. The premium registration currently only takes place at the authority’s headquarters. The authority also expects to establish more premium registration centres to expand this particular service. At these premium centres, an
individual going to register for his Ghana Card will be required to pay GH¢250, which is backed by law, Mr. Abdul-Ganiyu. Registration for the Ghana Card can be carried out at the 34 registration centres at 34 Ghana Revenue Authority’s offices across the country. Ahead of the sim card reregistration on October 1, Mr. Abdul-Ganiyu said the authority’s regional offices will reopen
for persons awaiting their Ghana Cards. Somewhere in the month of October, these regional and district offices will be reopened and individuals who have registered for the Ghana Cards in their districts are are expected to go to NIA districts or regional office for card to be issued to them. There are currently over fifteen million persons registered for the Ghana Card.
