The NIA has sighted a write up circulating on social media captioned “The NIA, (National

identification Authority) has begun their registration exercise again.” The NIA disassociates

itself from that statement and would urge the general public to disregard the same.

Mass registration ended in September 2020 and the Authority has moved into the continuous

registration phase. This process started in April 2021 with the co-location of 14 registration

centers at GRA offices across the country. Registration at the 14 GRA NIA centers is free and

Ghanaians can attest to that fact. Additionally, the Authority is currently working to establish

Regional and District offices across the country in June 2021.

The NIA wishes to reiterate that first registration and issuance o the Ghana Card is free in line

with government policy which has not changed. When NIA duly establishes its Regional and

District offices, registration at all the Districts and Regional offices across the country shall be

free. Click here to download the NIA fee charge pdf.
