Holders of Ghana Card will be able to travel to EU countries using only the new ID cards, Chief Executive Officer of the National Identification Authority, Prof Kenneth Attafuah, has said.
This is however dependent on whether Ghana successfully signs onto a pending protocol agreement with the European Union (EU), the NIA boss explained.
“This instant card we are issuing is the first of its kind in any part of the world. You get a passport on it that can make you travel anywhere in West Africa. And when Ghana signs the protocol with the EU, you will be able to travel with the Ghana Card anywhere in Europe,” Prof Attafuah has been quoted as saying on Starr FM, an Accra-based radio station.
Registration of Ghanaians for the Ghana card is currently ongoing.
