REGISTRATION OF DEFAULTERS AND PRIVATE CANDIDATES OPENS FOR 2020/2021 SERVICE YEAR

The Management of the National Service Scheme (NSS) wishes to announce to the general public that eligible Ghanaians who missed the opportunity to do their national service in previous years and now wish to enrol to do the service, have from Wednesday 15th January 2020 up to Tuesday 31st March 2020 to do so.

Eligible registrants include previous candidates who started but could not complete the service, private candidates who are qualified and wish to enroll, and Ghanaian nationals who schooled abroad.

Eligible applicants are therefore, required to submit their application letters to any of the Regional Secretariats of the Scheme or the NSS head office in Accra.

All applications must be accompanied by a letter requesting for PIN code or reactivation of PIN code, certified true copy of School Certificate or Transcript, an evidence of Deferment Letter, an Attestation/Introductory Letter from the institution attended, a copy of any of the following National Identifications (Voters, Driver’s License, Travel Passport) and a copy of School ID.

International students are mandated to upload their travel passport and other supporting documents on portal.www.nss.gov.gh as part of the NSS Diaspora Programme.
The general public is reminded that the National Service Act, 1980 (Act 426) makes it mandatory for every Ghanaian 18 years and above who have acquired a tertiary educational training, to fulfil national service obligation to the state.

Thank you.

SIGNED.
