OFWs in Saudi Now Need to Register their SIM Cards

The Communication and Information Technology Commission (CITC) of Saudi Arabia implements a new policy that would now require a foreigner to update or register their personal information if they want to continue enjoying cellphone services in the Kingdom.

The new rule means that all expatriates including overseas Filipino workers (OFWs) should present their iqama or residence permit to ensure that their (Subscribers Identity Module) SIM services would not be cut or disconnected. Likewise, an expatriate who fail to present a valid iqama would not able to purchase new SIM cards charge SIM, recharge, or transfer balances.

A group pushing for OFW rights, the Migrante-Middle East respects the new policy but is worried that it would negatively affect thousands of undocumented Filipino workers in Saudi Arabia.
