Mass re-registration of SIM cards starts today, you can register up to 10

Re-registration of SIM cards: Today, Friday, October 1, the bulk re-registration of subscriber identity module (SIM) cards across the country will commence.

Data from all SIM card users across the country is likely to be collected over the six-month program.

The Ghana Card, the country’s national ID card, is the only form of identity required for the exercise.

Minister of Communications and Digitalisation Ursula Owusu-Ekuful announced the exercise early last month. Saying it was necessary owing to the increased usage of communication services since the outbreak of the Covid-19 pandemic, as well as to facilitate E-education, among other things.

She added:
“Foreigners visiting Ghana can acquire a SIM card using the passport or travel card but they can only use the SIM card for 30 days after which it will be deactivated.
