Registering SIM Card on Your IQAMA

 Registering SIM Card on Your IQAMA (post compiled by Mr. Umair Ahmed)

SIM purchased from open market (any store other than mobile operator office) are usually unregistered in KSA and you need to register it on your name to avoid disconnection, and to avail online services.

To register the SIM you have to visit any STC / Mobily office. I visited one at Dabab street beside Chamber of Commerce building in Riyadh.

There was an information counter , where I explained my case(I bought SIM from a shop , when I did not have IQAMA and now I want it to be register on my newly issued IQAMA) .The person at information counter issued me a ticket with two forms.( one form was in English and the other in arabic)

I filled those forms partially (Name, Cell number, Date, IQAMA number and Signatures) and get photocopy of my IQAMA. (photocopy machine was available there) .Then i waited my turn on service counter.

Support person on service counter completed the form and update my details on STC system. And that’s it. The Sim purchased from shop is transferred on my name.

Documents required:
1. SIM Card
2. IQAMA

  3. In how many days is a Iqama issued and is the Iqama required to get a broadband connection.

    ReplyDelete
  4. In how many days IQAMA got issued totally depends on your company. Normally it take one to two weeks from your arrival date on Residence Visa.

    For Post Paid Broadband connections you need IQAMA. However almost all prepaid connections, can be bought on passport as well.

  32. Yesterday I bought one golden number from an unknown person. Sim was registered under his iqama.


    First....

    First I sent my Iqama No. on 5855
    and I received message. Your Number Will Be Registered Within 24 Hours.

    Write and send your Iqama No. only.
    To: 5855

    Second....

    You should have an online STC account.
    https://www.stc.com.sa/cwsPortal/stconline.portal?lang=en_US

    Then follow the following steps
    http://www.stc.com.sa/cws/portal/en/individual/ind-aljawal/ind-alj-start/ind-alj-str-prepaid/ind-alj-str-update-sawa


    I entered my newly bought cell number then the digits writtin at the back of my sim card

    and Clicked Confirm.

    Within 5 minutes sim got registered under my iqama and I received this message from STC
    Dear Customer, the number xxxxxxxx has been successfully registered under ID # 230xxxxxxx

    Done !

  39. salam alekum everyone
    this is faisalrauf
    if somebody wants to register his sim card on his iqama number from his home and does't want to waste his time on visiting service branch so there is the easy way to do that.
    here is the procedure.
    ---MOBILY users( just type your iqama number then * (star key without any space) and then iqama expiry date ( hijri date e.g; 18/05/1434)and send to 1500
    ---ZAIN users ( just send your iqama number to 700757 nothing else)
    ---SAWA users ( type 5855 then space then iqama number and send that to 902)

    5. For foreigner
      There's no way you can register your SIM
      and there's no way you can reload your SIM
      if you have a colleague or friend that have Iqama, only then you can use the SIM properly.
      Right now registering SIM card is mandatory in this country for security reason
