Every mobile subscriber in Ghana must now provide their name, residential or occupational address, date of birth, Certificate of Incorporation, in the case of a corporation; or registration, in the case of a partnership or an unincorporated body of persons; and an identification document in order to register a SIM Card.

What is the procedure for registering your SIM card with Ghana Card?

If you wish to re-register your SIM card in Ghana to update your information and keep your number safe, follow the instructions below.

For the registration of citizens’ SIM cards, only the National Identity Card (Ghana Card) issued to the individual can be utilized. Foreign residents and visitors residing in Ghana for longer than 90 days must register for a SIM card using the Ghana Card.

Foreign visitors to Ghana who are just here for a short time can get a SIM card using their passports or travel cards, but they can only use it for 30 days until it is deactivated. Foreigners who want to use a SIM card in Ghana for longer than 30 days will need to get a Non-Citizen Ghana Card.

Existing mobile network subscribers can register their SIM cards using USSD *404# and a SIM registration app (which is free).

If you wish to re-register your SIM card in Ghana to update your information and keep your number safe, follow the instructions below.

On the SIM card you want to register, dial *404#.

Enter the PIN for your Ghana Card (Enter letters and figures without the hyphens)

Confirm the PIN on your Ghana card.

If the transaction is successful, you will receive a confirmation message with a unique code.

You have three chances to answer security questions due to incorrect information.

If the verification at the National Identification Authority (NIA) fails, you will be notified and instructed to contact the NIA.
