As much as you may hope, RICA is not a well-off foreign aunt you never knew who is looking for someone to give her inheritance to – sorry.
It means that from 1 July 2010 all new pre- and postpaid customers should have registered their SIMs with Virgin Mobile.
Dial *124# to check if you are RICA compliant.
How do I get RICA'd?
To make the magic happen, you will need your South African ID or passport and proof of residence verified by a RICA officer. Proof of residence can be a bank statement, a retail account, a municipal bill etc., any official document that provides your name and address is good by us.
RICA can be done at any one of these stores:
- Any one of our Virgin Mobile stores
- Pick ‘n Pay
How to Rica if you are a non-South African resident?
You will need to give us a letter from your employer and a letter confirming your residence. We’ll need to see your passport, and need your permanent dress overseas.
