“Ghana Card Is Free, Don’t Pay For It” – NIA

The Ghana Card registration process is free at all district and regional offices, according to the National Identification Authority (NIA).

“You don’t need to pay money to anyone at any of our district and regional offices because the registration process is free,” said NIA Media Relations Officer Dora Badu Owusu Adoma.

She asked Ghanaians to file complaints against any registration officer who collects money from them before they are registered.

“File a complaint against any of our officers who demand money from you and the appropriate sanctions will be taken against them,” she said on Accra-based Happy FM.

She said it takes between 25 to 35 minutes for one to complete the registration process for the Ghana Card.

She attributed the delays in the registration process to the large numbers turning up at registration centers.

“We also suffer some intermittent network challenges and that also causes a delay in the registration process,” she added.
