About the SIM Registration Act of 2022

The Republic Act No. 11934, also known as the SIM Registration Act of 2022, was enacted into law by President Ferdinand Marcos Jr. to safeguard the public from SIM, Internet, or electronic communication-aided crimes, terrorism, scams, and fraud. It requires all new subscribers to register their SIM card prior to activation, and for existing subscribers to avoid deactivation. The deadline for users to register their SIM cards is on April 26, 2023, 180 days after the law becomes effective. A maximum of 120 days may be added to the registration. Sim cards that aren’t registered will have their functionality deactivated. The deactivated sim can only be reactivated after registration, and it must be done no later than five days following the automatic deactivation.
