Executive Secretary's Message
The 1st Phase of the revamped National Identification System (NIS) Project Roll-Out took place on 15th September 2017 when the National Identification Authority (NIA) conducted a liveness test of the National Identity Card (“Ghana Card”) issuance process and the registration and instant issuance of the first Ghana Card to His Excellency the President, Nana Addo Dankwa Akufo-Addo.
The 2nd Phase of the Roll-Out of the NIS Project, which entailed registration of, and card issuance to, Ghanaians, commenced on Monday 4th June 2018. The exercise initially covered the registration and instant issuance of the Ghana Card to citizens at Jubilee House, Parliament House, the Judicial Service, the security sector and several key influencers in society, before being extended to some public and private institutions.
The NIA piloted the registration exercise via institutional and community (Adentan, La Nkwantanang and Ga East municipalities) registration from 4th June 2018 to 28th April 2019, resulting in significant improvements to the technical system. It is worth noting that the Mass Registration Exercise started on the 29th April 2019 with Greater Accra being the first region. The registration exercise since then has taken place in the following regions: Volta, Oti, Northern, Savannah, North East, Upper West, Upper East, Bono, Ahafo and Bono East. By the first week of December 2019, residents in the Ashanti region will have their turn.Read More
