The Minister of Communication and Digitization, Ursula Owusu-Ekuful has announced that people who are yet to register their SIM cards in the re-registration exercise will have to pay GHC 5 to execute the service.
This service charge will only apply to people who will resort to using a self-service mobile application to be rolled out by the ministry. The Minister made this revelation during a press briefing on Sunday, 31st July, 2022.
According to the sector minister, the self-service mobile application will ease the stress that comes with the SIM card re-registration process and to allow people register their SIMs in the comfort of their homes.

She also affirmed that there will be public education and publicity on the use of the self-service application.
“The self-service SIM registration App will be ready for commercial launch on Tuesday, 2nd August. Adequate time will also be required for the publicity and public education on the use of the self-service SIM registration app, which will enable you to register yourself in the privacy of your own home.”
During the Press Briefing, the sector minister, Madam Ursula Owusu-Ekuful announced a new deadline for the ongoing SIM re-registration to the 30th September, 2022.
