The Ministry of Communications and digitalization has announced the Extension Of Deadline for the ongoing SIM Card Registration in 2022. They have announced in a recent press release that the deadline for the completion of the registration of the remaining active SIM cards cannot be met hence, the need to extend the deadline for SIM card Registration.
Government extends deadline for SIM card re-registration
The SIM registration exercise began on 1st October, 2021 and is expected to end on March 31, 2022. As at 17th March, 14,091,542 SIM Cards have been linked to the Ghana Card, 10,348,532 Bio-Captures conducted and 99,445 New SIMs registered. Due to a number of factors including the fact that over 7.5 million citizens and residents are yet to obtain Ghana Cards to enable them register their SIM cards, it is clear that the deadline for completion of the registration of the remaining active SIM cards cannot be met.

More time will also be required to update the SIM Registration App for the registration of diplomats, while a Self-Service SIM Registration App is also being developed to facilitate registration of SIM cards for Ghanaians resident abroad. This will be operational by mid April.
Why the Sim Card Registration Deadline was Extended
These issues (stated above) 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 New SIM Card Re-Registration Deadline
The Ministry of Communications and Digitalization has therefore extended the deadline for the registration of Subscriber Identification Module (SIM) cards to 31st July, 2022.
We commend all Ghanaians and foreign residents in Ghana for their support in ensuring that through this exercise, we develop and build a credible SIM database with integrity, which will help address Issues of cyber fraud and promote secure SIM Card based transactions as part of our efforts to digitally transform the economy.
So what is the new deadline for SIM Card Re-Registration in Ghana?
The new deadline for SIM Card registration in Ghana is 31st July, 2022.
