According to the recently approved SIM card registration law, all SIM cards from the nation’s three telecommunications companies (telcos), including roaming SIM cards used abroad, will need to be registered, a representative of the Department of Information and Communications Technology (DICT) said on Wednesday.

According to DICT Secretary Ivan John Uy, Globe Telecom Inc., Smart Communications Inc., and DITO Telecommunity SIM cards are included. They will be informed of the appropriate actions once the registration begins.

If they are abroad, the telcos will send them a text message asking them to visit this website or download an app, according to Uy.

He said that most of the nation’s telecoms already have mobile applications that users can access to log in and confirm their identification.

He added that some, though presently only requesting a user’s name and birthdate, will eventually be expanded to include other personal information as required by the SIM registration law.

“You’ll have to take a photo of your ID, passport, LTO license, or government-issued ID and have it uploaded,” he said. “Kukunan mo ng picture iyong ID mo o passport or LTO (Land Transportation Office) license or whatever government-issued ID.”

He stated that the telcos would confirm these provided IDs to finish the registration.

President Ferdinand “Bongbong” Marcos Jr. signed Republic Act No. 11934, commonly known as An Act Requiring the Registration of SIM Cards at a ceremony held in Malacanang Palace on Monday.

The three national telecoms declared their preparedness to abide by the law once passed, emphasizing its significance in reducing the spam and text frauds that plague mobile consumers.
