Currently applications are closed and will reopen in fall of 2021.


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.



The position of ID4Africa 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.



Currently, applications to join the ID4Africa Ambassadors Class of 2021 are now closed. Please check here again in the fall of 2021 to apply for the next session.
