The Department of Posts and Telecommunications announced that the deadline for SIM card registration of mobile phones would be extended until 31 January 2023.
Since unregistered SIM cards will be deactivated, the number of SIM card applicants at communication centres is increasing every day.
The department announced on 19 September that the name and the citizenship scrutiny card number used for SIM card registration will be checked against the data in the Immigration Department, and if the data does not match, the SIM card will be blocked.
It was mentioned in the announcement that some people make use of incorrect data for using SIM cards according to the verifications of the Department of Posts and Telecommunications under the Ministry of Transport and Communications. Therefore, the data filled in the SIM card registration process will be checked against the e-ID database data from the Ministry of Immigration and Population. Therefore, the department has urged people to buy and use SIM cards only after the proper registration using the correct data. In addition, SIM cards currently in use will be shut down if the data is wrong and incomplete, the department stated.
The statement said that action will be taken against telecommunications operators and SIM card vendors if they do not follow the instructions for the selling and re-registration of SIM cards. It is notified in the announcement that users must buy new SIM cards and re-register the current-in-use SIM cards in time by filling up their correct information at provided online service of respective mobile operators and shops, to avoid the deactivation of cards.
Users can check their ID by dialling *601# for Myanmar Posts and Telecommunications (MPT), *766# or *979*3*3# for ATOM, *666# for Ooredoo and *966# for Mytel. The re-registration process can be done at relevant mobile operators’ official websites, applications and shops. — TWA/CT
