How to get RICA Ready

What does RICA mean 


Regulation of Interception of Communication Act is a law that has been passed by the South African government that makes it compulsory for everyone to register all new and existing cellphone numbers. It’s there to protect legitimate users in a time of fraud or criminal activity and it helps law enforcement to identify users and track criminals using cellphones.  Imaginet has to abide by this law and all SIM cards we send out must be RICA certified before you take delivery.

Sign up and get your Imaginet Connection 

Once you have signed up for Mobile packages for either MTN or the LTE Advanced products, you will be sent a SIM card for connectivity via our courier from Imaginet .  Specific delivery details will be required to make sure we get your SIM to you as quickly and as efficiently as possible.

What you will need to have ready when the courier arrives !  Yippeeee

One of the following 

Bank Statement or Municipal Bill (3 months max)


Cellphone or Retail bill (3 months max)

Existing Lease or Rental Agreement for the current year.

Current Motor Vehicle License document that includes your name and residential address for the current year.

Also have one of the following ready 

Green bar coded ID document

Smart ID

Temporary ID certificate issued by Home Affairs



Important to note that  A driver's license is NOT an acceptable form of ID for RICA.



The person stated on the delivery note who is receiving the SIM Card MUST be present


Their original Identity Document (and  a copy)



Their original Proof of Residence (and a copy)


If you buy multiple SIMS from Imaginet, each one will have to be separately verified.
