By requesting a transfer, you acknowledge you are cancelling your current mobile service and your current provider may charge fees or charges.

Information we need

It is your responsibility to check the terms and conditions of your current service provider in relation to the mobile number you are transferring to TravelSIM as you may have to pay a penalty or cancellation fees and there may be other consequences if you are ending an existing contract early.

We need to send you an SMS verification code. Please enter your phone number and allow 5 minutes for the verification code to be sent. For more information, please read our number transfer policy

Please enter the verification code to continue. If you did not receive a code, wait 5 minutes and refresh this page to try again.

I authorise TravelSIM Australia to transfer this number. I also confirm that this is my mobile account and that I have authority to request the transfer of this number. I also understand that TravelSIM Australia will only transfer my number once the details associated with my previous provider have been successfully validated. I’m also aware that if my handset is from another provider it might need to be unlocked and TravelSIM Australia can’t do this for me.

I understand and accept that by transferring my number I am terminating any contract with my previous provider, that no credit will carry over from the address is required in order to receive transfer completion notification. I understand that information may be provided to other people to assist with account setup such as porting or fraud teams.

I understand that the number transfer will be rejected by my current mobile provider if the date of birth or account number I provide is incorrect, or if my mobile number is currently disconnected. TravelSIM Australia will make reasonable efforts to let me know about transfer completion on the day it happens, and will also let me know if there are any delays along the way that stop them completing the transfer (this includes incorrect information provided by the customer like, incorrect account number or date of birth).

Transfers will usually take only a few hours during business hours but may take longer. They are usually complete within 3 business days. You can continue to use your old sim card until it stops working, there may be a short period of service interruption while your number transfers. Your TravelSIM Australia sim card should be active shortly afterward or by 8pm that same day.

I acknowledge that my mobile number that I am transferring to TravelSIM Australia may be supplied to other carriers to allow call and messaging routing, complaint handling and network fault management.By confirming to the Transfer I agree to enter into a new agreement with TravelSIM Australia. If I choose a TravelSIM Australia no lock-in contracts I’m free to leave whenever I want and if I choose a plan with a contract there are charges with terminating this contract early.

For TravelSIM Australia no lock-in contract plans or any TravelSIM Australia product paid monthly without a contract: If I leave before the end of my plan period TravelSIM Australia won’t refund the amount of my monthly payment.

I agree to TravelSIM Australia performing a credit check on my details if on Post-Paid/Contract. I agree to begin the transfer to TravelSIM Australia today.
