Ministry of Telecommunications to solve the Issue of Unregistered SIM Cards

Afghanistan’s Telecommunication Ministry announced to proceed legally against selling of unregistered SIM cards.

Deputy Head of Office of Telecommunication Services Regulation Khair Mohammad Faizi said in a press conference on Sunday that the Ministry of Telecommunication has installed a mechanism that would help prevent selling of unregistered SIM cards.

Mr. Faizi added that telecommunication companies are given a deadline of three months, starting from 27 of July.  After this deadline, companies are required to sell ‘deactivated’ SIM cards to the customers. And, once the customer fills out all the mandatory forms and submits the documents, and the process of registration is completed, the SIM card will be then activated.

Within these three months, the companies are required to register all the SIM cards that were sold without registration.

Legal actions will be taken against companies who do not follow the procedure stated above.

Unregistered SIM cards have resulted in many security issues in the country.
