MANAMA: Batelco, Bahrain’s leading telecom operator, has reminded its customers with mobile lines to register their lines before specified deadlines.
Customers with postpaid lines must register before September 2 and prepaid mobile line customers need to register their lines by March 2, 2019, the company said.
The Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (TRA) SIM-card Enabled Telecommunications Services Registration Regulation came into effect on July 12, 2017. The regulation governs the registration of both prepaid and postpaid mobile SIM cards for all of Bahrain’s mobile operators, including Batelco.
The regulation, which applies to consumer, commercial and government entities, states that all mobile customers are required to complete the registration and verification process for their mobile lines, it said.
Registration is simple and can be completed at any of Batelco’s retail shops by providing the following documents: For Bahraini nationals valid Bahraini ID (CPR/Smartcard); GCC nationals valid GCC national ID or valid Bahraini ID (CPR/Smartcard); Non-Bahraini or non-GCC nationals valid passport or valid Bahraini ID (CPR/Smartcard); Commercial/ governement entites copy of valid commercial registration (CR), authorisation letter and valid ID (CPR/Smartcard) for the authorised signatory of the entity.
“Batelco continues to support the efforts of the TRA and works closely with the authority to ensure the delivery of world-class communications services to residents of Bahrain,” said the company.
