Ghana Card is currently accepted at 44,000 airports worldwide.

Ghana’s National Identity Card can now be used worldwide as an e-passport. The Card is now accepted at 44,000 airports worldwide.

It was established in 2018 by the Ghanaian government as a means of digitizing the economy. The Card is a one-of-a-kind biometric identifier that uniquely identifies each citizen. The International Civil Aviation Organization has accepted it (ICAO). On February 9, 2022, a ceremony in Canada was held to officially recognize the card following its verification by the ICAO.

Holders of the Card from outside the country can now use the card to purchase flights to Ghana.

Ghana’s High Commissioner to Canada, Randsford Sowah, was presented with the token commemorating Ghana’s ICAO recognition.

“Ghana Card holders who were born in Ghana or in the diaspora can now board any flight to Ghana without requiring a visa, as we want to provide an inclusive Akwaba experience to all children and descendants of our country. As a result, Ghana is one of the few countries in the world where the National ID card also functions as an electronic passport.” According to Mr. Randsford Sowah
