The first thing you would see after signing into the Ghana national service enrollment system for the national service online registration, is a page that requires you to choose a means of identification by entering the ID number of a supported ID card.
The supported ID cards are; a voters id, national id, ssnit id, drivers license or a Ghanaian passport. But what if for some reason, you do not have any of the cards. Either because you have misplaced it or because you have not acquired one yet.
The system would not allow you to move unto the enrollment form until you have provided a means of identification.
Here is what you can do
Request your Voter registraion ID number
Just go to the electoral commission district or regional office in the town where you registered the card. Request for just the ID number by providing them with your your full name. All you need is the ID number and not the card itself. You would have to be humble as they are not obliged to provide you with that information.
Upon getting the ID number, you can move on to enter it on the enrollment page to verify your identity and register.
Get New SSNIT CARD
Go to a SSNIT office and request for a SSNIT card. SSNIT would not give you the card just because you need it. You must satisfy a condition. They require a letter of appointment from an employer that shows you have been recently employed. And that your employer is ready to pay your SSNIT contribution.
How do you get an appointment letter? Any registered business can give you an appointment letter. Even an MTN mobile money vendor business that is registered at a district assembly or similar authority.
You would have to admit that you have been recently employed by the said institution. And that you need a ssnit number. Your position of employment, employment date and all that is required in an appointment letter must be present. You can google online for a sample appointment letter.
SSNIT card takes almost a month, but its not the card that you need, you need a ssnit number. Upon registering with snnit you would receive your ssnit number in a week’s time.
Upon getting the SSNIT ID number, you can move on to enter it on the enrollment page to verify your identity and register.
Get A Passport
The third option is to apply for a passport. This is not the safest option since we all know that even the expedited application takes more than a month. By then the national service enrollment would have been closed.
