Ghana, Kenya Astoundingly Revolutionize Biometric Passport Services for Compatriots in Canada, China

Ghana, Kenya Astoundingly Revolutionize Biometric Passport Services for Compatriots in Canada, China –

Innovative Measures to Ease Passport Renewal Process

The Ghanaian High Commission in Canada has taken an innovative step to facilitate passport issuance or renewal for its citizens residing in western Canada. A mobile team was dispatched to collect biometric information from applicants, eliminating the need for them to travel to the High Commission in Ottawa.

Dr. Charles Odame-Ankrah, President of the Ghanaian-Canadian Association of Calgary, lauded the move, stating, “Ghanaians have incurred huge costs in the past, having to travel to Ottawa from far-away locations for biometric capture. On average, an applicant requires $1,200 for that purpose.”

Biometric Capture Centres in Canada

The embassy set up a biometrics capture centre at the Ghana House in Calgary on March 16, where numerous passport applicants arrived to have their biometrics captured. Subsequently, the team visited Regina, carrying out the same exercise.

Kenya Extends Consular Services to Diaspora

Following Ghana’s lead, Kenya’s State Department of Diaspora Affairs has dispatched a mobile team to provide consular services to Kenyans abroad. According to Kenya’s Ambassador to China, Willy Bett, the exercise will reach China this month.

“From April 13, the team will be in the capital Beijing to provide ID card obtention or replacement, passport application, and certificate authentication services,” Bett said.

Consular Services in Major Chinese Cities

The mobile team will visit Guangzhou on April 15 and Shanghai on April 17, before proceeding to Hong Kong. Kenyans residing in locations neighbouring these cities are expected to benefit from this initiative.

“This is the third phase of an exercise initiated by the government to facilitate access to important services for Kenyans living in different parts of the world,” Bett added.

Facilitating Seamless Access to Vital Services

Both Ghana and Kenya have recognized the challenges faced by their citizens living abroad in accessing essential services like passport renewal and ID card obtention. By sending mobile teams to various locations, these governments are ensuring seamless access to vital services for their compatriots.
