THE USE OF GHANA CARD

Jul 21- 2022

IN FURTHERANCE OF ITS OBJECTIVE OF ENSURING THE SAFETY OF THE FINANCIAL SYSTEM, BANK OF GHANA PURSUANT TO REGULATION 7 OF THE NATIONAL IDENTITY REGISTER, 2012 (L.I. 2111), DIRECTED THAT WITH EFFECT FROM 1ST JULY, 2022, THE GHANA CARD SHALL BE THE ONLY IDENTIFICATION CARD THAT WILL BE USED TO UNDERTAKE TRANSACTIONS AT ALL BANK OF GHANA LICENSED AND REGULATED FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN GHANA.

FOLLOWING REPRESENTATIONS BY GHANAIAN CITIZENS LIVING ABROAD OVER THE BANK OF GHANA’S DIRECTIVE, IT WAS PROPOSED TO THE BANK TO CONSIDER/ACCEPT VALID PASSPORTS AS ALTERNATIVE IDENTIFICATION DOCUMENT FOR BANK/FINANCIAL TRANSACTIONS BY NON-RESIDENT GHANAIANS WITHOUT GHANA CARD IN VIEW OF THE FACT THAT THE NATIONAL IDENTIFICATION AUTHORITY IS YET TO ARRANGE FOR THE ISSUANCE OF GHANA CARDS TO OUR CITIZENS ABROAD.

IN THE INTERIM THEREFORE, NON-RESIDENT GHANAIANS ARE TO PRESENT THEIR PASSPORTS FOR TRANSACTIONARY PURPOSES WITH FINANCIAL INSTITUTIONS IN GHANA.

MEANWHILE, THE EMBASSY WISHES TO INFORM THE PUBLIC THAT ARRANGEMENTS ARE BEING MADE FOR THE REGISTRATION OF GHANAIANS ABROAD FOR THE GHANA CARD.
