6 Dec 2022

Myanmar’s Ministry of Transport and Communications (MOTC) has issued a notification to inform users of a planned SIM checking scheme. The ministry advised mobile users to ensure that the name registered to their SIM was correct, as this information would be checked against the National Database and SIMs with discrepancies would be disconnected. Users have until 31 January 2023 to make any necessary corrections.
