All eligible national service personnel are therefore requested to log onto the Schemes website, on www.nss.gov.gh, to check their placements and then proceed to the various user agencies to endorse their appointment letters, before they book appointments online for registration and validation at designated centres in the regions.

National service personnel are therefore to note that, the service period officially commences on Monday, September 7, 2020.

This special arrangement is being implemented in response to the COVID-19 pandemic directives and is intended to prevent large gatherings of national service personnel at registration centres.

Thank you.
