Changes to the rules governing the activation of prepaid SIM cards in Australia

On Monday May 30th 2016 the Department of Immigration has enforced a tightening of the rules around the activation of prepaid mobile SIM Cards in Australia.


In order to activate an Australian SIM Card the identity of the user of the SIM card has to be verified. Australians can use their drivers license for this, but visitors from other countries always had to use their foreign passport together with the associated visitor Visa as a means of identification.

Prior to May 30th 2016 your prepaid SIM card could be activated as soon as your visa for your trip to Australia had been issued. As visas are usually issued anywhere between a couple of days and several months prior to your arrival in Australia, that meant it was easily possible to activate your SIM card while you were still at home, i.e. prior to arriving in Australia.

When you activate your SIM card the validity of your visa is checked, and with the change effected on May 30th 2016 your visa is now 'validated' only once you have cleared customs in Australia. This means that the activation of your SIM card is now possible as soon as you arrive in Australia, but not earlier.

Changes to MojoKnows products

MojoKnows has always put customer service first - we assist you with the activation process of your SIM card, and as a result, there is no need for you to spend any extra time with these sometimes difficult processes.

That means that as a MojoKnows customer, the changes for you are actually minor - rather than being able to use your MojoKnows product immediately after landing, you have a delay of - usually - about two hours until you can use it; you don't need to do anything extra - simply put your australian SIM card in your phone when you arrive, and turn the phone off and on again after two hours. You will get a text message from us when your service is active.
