“ICAO is aware of recent and incorrect media reports claiming that ICAO has agreed that the Ghanaian ID is equivalent to an e-passport. How ever it is not ICAO’s role to certify the use of a State’s Identity Card for international travel in place of a passport” they posted on their twitter page.
“It is the sovereign right of each individual state to decide upon its entry and exit requirements and the document that need to be presented by those travelling to and/ or from its territory. A member of state worldwide accept specified national ID cards as Identity documents during air travel based on bilateral agreement between issuing and receiving states. Any decision to accept to accept such alternative travel identity documents is made by the receiving state itself. Ghana’s successful conclusion of its key ceremony on 9 February is a major milestone in its efforts to provide for more international acceptance of its electronic travel documents”
