Bawumia Promises Easier Passport Acquisition Process From 2025

The Vice President of Ghana, Dr Mahamudu Bawumia says passport application will be made easy and convenient beginning next year as he anticipates the stress and bureaucracy involved in the acquisition of the travel document will be a thing of the past.

This will be achieved through the Ghana card, he told the Ashanti Regional House of Chiefs on Monday, June 10, 2024.

The Ghana Card has all the relevant data that may be required to apply for a passport, according to him.

“Beginning next year, passport application will be made very simple and easy. There will be no need for a separate passport application. All you will need to do is walk into the office, pay for the passport and leave your Ghana Card number behind and the passport will be printed,” he explained.

The Vice President’s meeting with the House formed part of his ongoing campaign tour in the Region in his mission to win the 2024 Presidential elections.

Chairing the meeting was Asante Mamponghene Daasebre Osei Bonsu II, and among the chiefs present were Domeabrahene Nana Kusi Oboadum I, Offinsohene Nana Dwamena Akenten II, Tepahene Nana Adusei Atwenewa Ampem I and Bompatamanhene Nana Effah Appenteng.

Queens in the Ashanti Region were also duly represented and included Mamponghemaa Nana Agyakoma Difie II and Eijisuhemaa Nana Yaa Asantewaa II.

The Vice President was accompanied by the Chief of Staff at the Presidency, Akosuah Fremah Osei Opare, the Member of Parliament (MP) for Suame, Osei Kyei Mensah Bonsu, MP for Dome Kwabenya, Sarah Adwoa Sarfo, Minister for Energy, Dr Matthew Opoku Prempeh, the Ashanti Regional Minister, Simon Osei Mensah, the Chairman of the NPP, Stephen Ntim and the General Secretary, Justin Kodua Frimpong.
