How to add your Ghana Card to your MTN SIM/Number online

A lot of MTN Customers have still not linked their SIM Cards with their Ghana Cards. With this tutorial, we will teach you the simplest method to add your Ghana Card details to your Voice and Data SIM as well as to your Turbonet SIM.

MTN Ghana has already warned severally that they will block all unregistered SIM Cards by the end of this month. It is therefore important that we all add the cards to our number so we can continue to stay in touch with family and friends.

First of all, you need to have a valid Ghana Card for this process to work for you. If you still have not applied or received your card, do well to follow up promptly.

Ghanaians who have never applied can pay GHS 250 at the Premium Office to have the card done for them on the same day.

The good thing about this method is that MTN Ghana has been encouraging subscribers to do it, hence we know that those who go through the method will not have their SIM Cards blocked.
