Contribute to the mission of empowering people to claim their legal identity by applying to be an Ambassador.



ID4Africa appoints one Ambassador per African country. Appointments are valid for one year but are subject to renewal annually (with a 4-year term limit) by mutual agreement based on an assessment of active engagement and involvement in the identity space throughout the year.

In the circumstance that a previously appointed Ambassador is being renewed for another term, no applications from the concerned country will be solicited or taken for that year. 

In addition to the Ambassador, each country can also appoint up to two deputies (one required to represent an ICT Ministry or equivalent).


The position of ID4Africa Ambassador and Deputy Ambassador is open to African civil servants working full time for governmental agencies that are considered identity stakeholders in their country.

All positions are voluntary and duties are to be performed during the free time of the Ambassador.

All applicants must accept ID4Africa’s Code of Ethics and any policy directives from ID4Africa.

Applicants who do not hold the post of Director General or higher will need to provide us with the name and contact details of a senior representative within the government who will support your nomination. 

We invite you to monitor this page for calls for applications to become an ID4Africa Ambassador.
