Sim Registration Exercise Extended To July 31


The Ministry of Communications and Digitization has extended the closing date for the on-going sim registration exercise from March 31st to July 31st 2022.


According to the Ministry, the extension will afford the over the over 7.5 million Ghanaians the chance to also get their cards registered.


In a release sighted by Thinknewsonline.com and signed by the Minister for Communications and Digitalization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful (MP), it said "The sim registration exercise began on 1st October, 2021 and is expected to end on 31st March, 2022. As at 17th March, 14,091542 sim cards have been linked to the Ghana Card, 10,348,532 bio-captures conducted and 99,445 new sins registered"


"Due to a number of factors including the fact that over 7.5 million citizens and residents are yet to obtain Ghana Cards to enable them register their sim cards, it is clear that the deadline for the completion of the registration of the remaining active sim cards cannot be met"


She added that more time will be required to update the sim registration app for the registration of diplomats, while a self-service sim registration app is being developed to facilitate registration for Ghanaians resident abroad.


The Minister revealed that it will be operational by mid April.


"The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization has therefore extended the deadline for the registration of subscriber identification module (SIM) cards to 31st July, 2022"
