Buying a SIM card in India
In order to purchase a SIM card in India you will need to provide:
- The address you're staying at.
- A passport (or another form of photo ID).
You may also need to provide details of a referee in the country, although this is not always necessary if you provide the address of your hotel.
SIM cards can take anywhere between an hour to a day to be activated, so you may be without coverage for that period.
