TNT SIM Card Registration for Foreigners

If you’re a tourist in the country and you sign up for a SIM card, it’s only going to work for 30 days. After that, it’s going to stop working all by itself. So, if you’re staying longer, you might need to do something about it before it stops working.

Foreign Tourists


  • Your passport (with a copy of the main page and pages showing your visa stamp).
  • Something that shows where you’re staying in the Philippines, like a hotel reservation. If you don’t have that, a letter from the person you’re staying with could work.
  • A ticket to go back home or to another place, showing when you’re leaving the Philippines.

Foreign Nationals With Other Type Of Visa


  1. Your Passport: Make sure it shows your passport number, full name, and where you’re from.
  2. Where You’re Staying Proof: Like a hotel reservation or something similar. If you don’t have that, a letter from the person you’re staying with could work.
  3. Other Papers: If you got them, cool! Like an Alien Certificate of Registration ID Card or any official ID from the folks who gave you the visa. If you’re working or studying here, they might want some work or student papers.
  4. For Special Cases (POCs): If you’re a “Person of Concern,” you might need a special travel or admission paper from the Department of Justice.


  1. For People:
    • Giving fake information, using fake IDs, pretending to be someone else with a registered SIM, or selling stolen SIM cards is against the law.
    • If caught, you could go to jail for six months to two years, plus pay a fine of P300,000.
  2. For phone companies:
    • If a phone company doesn’t register SIM cards, they might get fined. The fine can be anywhere from P100,000 to P1,000,000, depending on how bad the situation is.
  3. Extra Bit:
    • If someone from a phone company messes up and spills private information, they could get fined too. The fine could range from P500,000 to P4,000,000.
