Suppliers-importers to pay 100 soms for mobile phone registration

Suppliers-importers will pay for the registration of mobile devices. The State Committee of Information Technologies and Communications informed 24.kg news agency

A one-time fee for registration of a mobile phone will be paid at the border crossing into the customs territory of the Kyrgyz Republic by individual entrepreneurs or companies that import mobile devices. Thus, it is planned to exclude both the import of smuggled and counterfeit phones, and their sale in the country’s markets, since such a device cannot be used in the network of cellular operators of the Kyrgyz Republic.

An owner, if desired, can bind the device to SIM card for free.

If a citizen purchased the device outside the country, then he or she will receive a message that within 30 days it is necessary to register the mobile device independently with the one-time registration fee.

Registration will be available online on the portal of public services. There is no need to re-register a new mobile device in case of its change.
