Once you receive your MegaTel sim, the first thing you will need to do is have it RICA’d. To do this, you will need to provide us with the following:
You will need to provide your sim card’s serial number
The serial number is the barcode at the back of your sim card
A photo of your ID / Passport / Asylum
This is required so that we know that the ID provided does indeed belong to you.
Make sure that the photo is clear and close enough.
You will need to provide a selfie of you holding your ID document next to your face.
Take a full photo of your ID / passport / asylum.
– Make sure the photo is clear and that no corners are cut out.
– The photo must be of your original document, no copies will be allowed.
– Your document must be valid (not expired)
A photo of your proof of residence document not older than 3 months
Any one of these documents will be accepted as proof of residence:
– Utility bill; i.e. water, electricity or rates – Bank statement
– Rental or lease agreement – Any retail store account

The Regulation of Interception of Communications and Provision of Communication- Related Information Act (RICA) is a South African law that regulates all matters relating to interception and monitoring of direct and indirect communications.
RICA law requires all cellular network subscribers with new or existing cell phone numbers to register their sim cards with their personal information. Your sim card will only be activated once the RICA process has been completed.
