This was announced during a press briefing by the NCA Today, 26th April 2023.

The National Communications Authority (NCA) and Telecommunication Companies (Telcos) will by April end, introduce a short code for subscribers to verify SIM cards associated with a Ghana card. *402*1#

The short code, which will become operational after testing has been completed and approved, will help the subscribers avoid in-person inquiries at Telco offices to verify the same.

On the NCA’s official Facebook page, they Announced

”The NCA and the Telcos have already been actively working on a short code for Individual Subscribers to verify the number of SIMs associated with a Ghana card; you just type the shortcode on your phone, and after a verification process using your Ghana card pin, the number of SIMs associated with the Ghana card will be displayed.

There will be no need for Subscribers to physically go to the Telco to verify the same when the shortcode is operational, by the end of April 2023, after the testing has been completed and approved”


This came as a result of a complaint by many individuals that their Ghana Cards have been registered with multiple SIMs they are unaware of, it appears some Scammers / Fraudsters may have teamed up with these SIM registration Agents to Secretly Register more than one number for a Ghana Card and sell the rest to any interested buyer with no Ghana Card or who intends to use it for malicious purpose.
