TRA extends SIM registration deadline

1 Jun 2018

Bahrain’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) has announced that subscribers now have until 2 September 2018 to register their post-paid SIM cards, an extension of three months on the previous deadline. The TRA said that users who fail to register within this timeframe will have their service suspended for a temporary period and that failure to register again during this suspension period will result in a final deactivation by 2 December 2018. The SIM registration scheme is part of the regulator’s efforts to reduce fraud and identity theft in Bahrain.
