It means documents such as driving licences, National Health Insurance cards, baptismal certificates and voters identity cards are no longer acceptable as sources of identification for the Ghana card.

The Executive Secretary of the authority, Professor Ken Attafuah said the commissioners of oath would provide ready services for Ghanaians who did not have the required documents, so that their registration would not delay.

 He said the government has also decided to bear the charges of those using the services of the commissioners of oath.

The new registration guidelines are in accordance with the National Identification Amendment Law 2017 (Act 950).
