Device Registration For Holders Of A Foreigner’s İdentification Number (FIN)
Foreigners over the age of 18 who have a foreigner’s identification number (FIN) can register a device via the e-government system. The e-Government password received from PTT is used for this procedure. Foreigners who have a FIN can carry out registration procedures via the e-Government system.
Registration Procedures And Documents Required
Registration procedures for diplomats, military personnel, students and resident foreigners who do not have a FIN are carried out at Subscriber Registration Centres. These persons must present the original of their passport or identity card, as well as documents such as a certificate from the school where they are studying or a residence permit. Persons under the age of 18 may be registered by their parents or legal representatives.
Documents To Be Submitted To The Device Registration And Communication Authority
Foreigners who do not have the above-mentioned documents can register their equipment with a single line number. In this case, they can go to the Subscriber Registration Centres with their own subscription contract and original passport. After the original registration document has been seen by the Subscriber Registration Centre officials, the “Original Seen” stamp and the Subscriber Registration Centre stamp will be printed on the application. The documents received are sent electronically to the Information and Communication Technologies Authority. This process enables students to communicate smoothly during their education in Turkey.
