Check Phone Numbers registered under Iqama

With the increased terrorism all around the world, misuse of mobile phone SIMs has become very common. If a SIM is registered in your name, and it is used by unauthorized way for some terrorism activity, believe me you are in deep trouble. In order to avoid this, you should check if any unauthorized number is registered under your Iqama.



Finally a service has been launched in Saudi Arabia with the help of CITC (Communication and Information Technology Center) to know about the phone, mobile phone and internet connections registered under your Iqama. It is a very positive step by the Government of Saudi Arabia as we can now at least know about the numbers registered under our Iqama. If any number is not in our use, we can go to the respective office of mobile company and get it disconnected.



Following is the procedure to get this information. When you will send SMS, you will receive another SMS containing all the numbers registered under the name of the person who is owner of the SIM from which the message is sent.



  1. If you are STC customer, write “9988” in SMS and send it to 900 or 902.If you are not an STC customer and want to check the phone numbers registered under your Iqama, you can call at +966112907907 and ask about it from customer services representative.
  2. If you are Mobily customer, send a blank SMS 616166. If you are not a Mobily customer and want to check the phone numbers registered under your Iqama, you can call at +966560101100 and ask about it from customer services representative.
  3. If you are Zain customer, send a blank SMS to 700123. If you are not a Zain customer and want to check the phone numbers registered under your Iqama, you can call at +966590000959 and ask about it from customer services representative.
Please be noted that the message is free of cost. If you find any unauthorized phone number registered under your Iqama, please go to the respective office along with your Iqama and get it disconnected. 



Chim: Till today in July 2015, the only way to check Virgin Mobile is to call their customer service and ask them. Hope CITC will enforce them soon to make available an SMS or membership inquiry facility like STC, Zain and Mobily to improve security. Once people can check registered numbers on their ID, it makes the black market a bit difficult.
