NCA: Usage of Voters ID to be included in SIM registration App

The National Communications Authority (NCA) has disclosed plans to allow temporary usage of Voters ID cards for SIM registration.

It has been discussed at a SIM registration technical meeting to update the SIM registration App to allow a temporal use of Voters ID.

It however, explained that development effort will take several weeks if not months to complete.

Also, the NCA said the deep dive technical discussions on the integration effort with Mobile Network Operators (MNOs) and Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) providers have not even been held.

It noted that a similar effort with Passport integration has taken more than three months and counting and still not complete.

The Authority made the disclosure in a press release in reaction to a social media post by Sam George, Member of Parliament for Ningo Prampram and a member of the select committee on Communications concerning the use of the voters’ ID Card for the ongoing SIM registration exercise.

The regulator insisted that currently, there is no medium for registration with Voters ID in the current SIM registration exercise; Ghana Card remains the only ID.

The NCA stated that the general public will be duly informed when both integration efforts are complete as well as the modalities and conditions of use.

Until then, Ghana Card remains the only ID for the current SIM registration exercise.
