Azerbaijani operators simplify SIM card sales to foreigners


Azerbaijani mobile network operators have simplified the sale of cell phone SIM cards to foreigners in connection with the upcoming Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games, a source in the country's telecommunications market told Trend May 4.

The Baku 2017 Islamic Solidarity Games will be held May 12-22.

According to the source, the simplified method allows foreigners to purchase, within a period of one month, mobile phone numbers without registration.

"The innovation is valid until June 1” the source said. "Afterwards, the cell phone SIM card owners should sign contracts with the local mobile network operators.”

Foreigners can register their cell phone SIM cards by presenting one of four documents – migration card, identity card, passport or temporary registration document.
