MTN SIM Registration Update: Change Your Registration Biodata Without Going To The Office

Are you tired of the long queues at the MTN SIM registration update centers? In this article, we are going to show you how to successfully update your MTN SIM registration details online without visiting the office.

The Ministry of Communication and Digitalization (MoCD) a few weeks back revealed the decision of the Ministry to allow telecommunication networks in the country to re-register all Mobile SIM Cards.

This event was scheduled to take off in June 2021, but it has since been rescheduled to September 30, 2022, because of the NCA’s inability to issue the majority of Ghana Cards to Ghanaians.

According to the Ministry, the exercise is in accordance with the Subscriber Identity Module Registration Regulations, 2011, LI 2006 and will curb SIM Boxing and other criminal activities perpetrated by fraudsters using fake SIM cards and also facilitate E-education, among others.

As a Ghanaian, you can register a total of 10 SIM cards across all networks, but you can only do so with a Ghana card.

According to the Ministry of Communications and Digitalization, unregistered after the deadline will be deactivated. Owing to this, it has become important for all Ghanaians to link their Ghana Card to their SIM Cards.

Because of the SIM registration, it has become necessary for subscribers to be given the opportunity to update their SIM registration biodata before finally linking their MTN SIM card with the Ghana Card.
