GHANA: Digital address required to obtain ID cards


Foreign nationals wishing to apply for, or renew, non-citizen ID cards must use a newly introduced digital addressing system. 

The digital address is also required to access local services, such as opening a bank account or obtaining a driver’s license. 

Foreign nationals should download the GhanaPostGPS app on a mobile device and follow instructions to obtain a digital address. They will need to enter their phone number and then type in a four-digit verification code sent to their phone, as well as their full name, before the app will confirm their current location and digital address.

How does this affect the client?

Foreign nationals applying for or renewing their non-citizen ID card should verify their digital address via the mobile app as soon as possible in order to avoid delays.
