AirtelTigo, MTN, and Vodafone, the major mobile network operators in Ghana, have announced their compliance with a recent directive issued by the National Communications Authority (NCA) regarding the ongoing SIM registration exercise.

According to the directive, all disconnected SIMs, including those blocked in November 2022 for not completing both stages of the SIM registration, are to be delinked from all databases by Monday, April 17, 2023.

The directive also requires all SIM cards registered after the limit of 10 per individual to be delinked, deactivated, and removed from all databases by the same date.

The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications, an industry association representing mobile network operators in Ghana, has encouraged subscribers who have acquired Ghana cards but have not completed registration to do so before the deadline.

Additionally, subscribers with more than 10 SIMs registered to themselves are urged to verify their SIMs on record at their nearest mobile network operator service centers.

The Chamber has invested heavily in arrangements to ensure that subscribers who have their Ghana cards and are ready to register can do so at any of their several touchpoints across the country.

However, subscribers who fail to complete registration before the deadline risk having their impacted SIMs completely deactivated without further notice or an extension of time.

The Ghana Chamber of Telecommunications is an advocacy institution established to help direct telecommunications policy, legislation and regulation, and pursue research towards the development of the telecommunications industry in Ghana.
