The Ministry of Communication and Digitalization has extended the deadline of the SIM card re-registration exercise to July 31, 2022.
The exercise which initially begun in October 2021 was supposed to end on March 31, 2022.
This gives persons who do not have the Ghana Card the chance to secure one to register their SIM card.
A statement signed by the sector Minister Ursula Owusu Ekuful said this will also give more time for the update of the Sim Registration App for the registration of diplomats, whiles the self-service Sim Registration App for the registration of Ghanaians residents abroad to be operational by mid April.
“These issues make it imperative for the deadline to be extended to ensure that every eligible SIM card is captured and we produce a credible database by the end of the exercise.” the statement noted.
It added ”The Ministry of Communications and Digitalisation has therefore extended the deadline for the registration of Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards to 31st July, 2022.”
