Ghana Card to be integrated with a passport for travel

The executive secretary of the National Identification Authority, Prof Kenneth Attafuha, has announced that the Ghana Card will soon be used as a passport for travel to European and American countries.

“The conversation we had with the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and NITA is to get the appropriate certification and International Standardisation Organisation Certification and the International Civil Aviation Organisation Certification (ICAO) so that the Ghana Card itself can be a valid passport.”

The Ghana Card can already be used to travel within West Africa. This plan would see the Ghana Card grant entry to more countries, and expand the eligibility to Ghanaians living abroad.

The Ghana Card is a powerful tool, it already has an electronic passport on it, which is valid for travel within West Africa
