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.
