In a recent development, the Philippine government has announced the extension of the deadline for SIM card registration for 90 days. The move comes as a relief for millions of Filipinos who were struggling to meet the previous deadline which was set tomorrow, April 26.
The announcement was made by Department of Justice Secretary Jesus Crispin Remulla after his cabinet cluster meeting with other government officials in Malacañang.
With the new deadline (July 25), users now have ample time to complete the registration process and avoid any inconvenience that may arise from non-compliance.
The registration of SIM cards is an important measure to combat terrorism and other illegal activities that use mobile phones for their operations. The registration process requires users to provide their personal information, such as name, address, and a valid ID, to their respective service providers.
