How to Register your TM SIM in the Philippines for the SIM Card Registration Act?

Step 1. Visit the official TM SIM Card Registration website through this link:

The same website is used for Globe subscribers.

Note: If you encounter any issues, please stand by or bookmark the link for easy and quick access when the registration page is back online or visit during low traffic hours (ex. early morning).

Step 2. Input your 10-digit mobile number, then click the “Register” button.

For this step, prepare your 10-digit mobile number (ex. 9173456780) before registration. 

Step 3. Wait for the One-Time Password (OTP) text message on your mobile phone.

Be on standby since the OTP expires in five minutes.

Step 4. Enter the OTP sent to your phone on the registration page.

The OTP helps validate your registration, allowing you to proceed to the next step.

Step 5. Enter the following required information:

  • Name
  • Birthday
  • Gender
  • Address
  • Nationality
  • Registration Type (Owner, Parent/Legal Guardian, or Authorized Signatory/Representative)

Make sure to input information in all required fields (noted by a red asterisk) so you can click the “Next” button.

Step 6. Choose the valid ID you will use for registration, and upload its copy using the “attach” button.

If you can’t find the valid ID you currently have, choose “Others.” You may take a picture of your ID prior to the registration or you may also take a picture during registration. Just make sure to take a clear picture in a well-lit room.

PRO TIP: Globe allows a maximum of 5MB file size for photos. So, before upload, try and compress the size of your photos. For this task, you may use online tools such as

See full list of valid IDs below:

  • Unified Multi-purpose Identification Card;
  • A person with Disabilities card; or
  • Other government-issued ID with photo

Step 7. Take a clear selfie. This is required for verification purposes.

For this step, take your picture in a bright room so your face is clear to the camera.

Step 8. Tick the REQUIRED boxes for Globe’s “Terms and Conditions” and “Data Privacy.”

For the last step, it is suggestd to only tick the REQUIRED boxes. However, if you want to receive promotional messages or if you allow Globe to share your personal data to its shareholders, you may tick the other two boxes.

Otherwise, you can click the REQUIRED boxes and tap the “SUBMIT” button.

Step 9. Wait for the Reference Number to appear on the screen.

The Reference Number is proof of your registration, so make sure to keep a copy by screenshotting the page or writing down the number.

And that’s it! Your TM SIM card is now registered under the SIM Card Registration Act. If you have other TM SIM cards or if you have a Globe SIM, you can repeat the process to register each SIM under your name.

SIM Card Registration FAQs

Can I register multiple SIMs?

YES. This is especially important to know for those who have multiple SIMs that they use for different purposes.

You only need to register each SIM under your name. For example, if you have three sims (Globe, TM, and Smart), you need to register each under your name on their respective registration portals/systems.
