The Ghana Immigration Service (GIS) has suggested that residents along the country's borders should be given identification cards to make the immigration process more efficient. In particular, the GIS is concerned about the Ghana-Togo border.

Their suggestion comes in the aftermath of the shooting dead of a taxi driver on 22 October by an immigration officer in the Aflao border district, situated next to Lome, the capital city of Togo. The driver is alleged to have used an unauthorised route across the border. The case is being investigated by Ghana
