Customers told to re-register from July 17 at over 100 locations in the UAE
Following the launch of the "My Number, My Identity" campaign by the UAE Telecom Regulatory Authority (TRA), Etisalat today announced the near-completion of all procedures to begin SIM card registration for its mobile customers.
Starting July 17, 2012, Etisalat's customers can choose from over 100 points of sale across the UAE to process their mobile registration.
As per the directive of the TRA, mobile customers in the UAE are required to update their profile in the operator database and ensure all SIM holders are the same as the registered owner of the SIM card. Customers will need to register their SIM cards by submitting an application form along with valid identification document including Passport with valid residency, Emirates or GCC ID card. For business and government customers, the requirement is a valid establishment card.
Registration of the SIM card is only required once and all unregistered SIM cards will be cancelled once the registration period expires.
