It's as quick and easy as ordering a pizza.

Say you want to switch over to amaysim, for example. The whole thing can be done online and takes just a few simple steps to accomplish. All you need is an unlocked handset, an Australian address, an active email address and a valid form of Australian ID. Then just follow these quick and easy steps to make the switch:

Valid forms of Australian ID

  • Credit or debit card in your name, issued by an Australian Banking institution
  • Driver's license, issued within Australia
  • Australian passport/International passport with valid Australian visa
  • Medicare card

6: Activate your new SIM

This usually only takes a couple of hours, and you can continue to use your old SIM in the meantime.

That's it!
