Online SIM Registration
To activate your SIM card, verify your identity online in a few clicks. Registration is carried out by an operator through video call.
Make sure you have the following handy:
  • A valid form of identification
  • Your SIM pack
  • Your personal data
  • A webcam or a smartphone

We are required to identify the SIM card holder by law. You can use a smart phone, a webcam or download the WebID app (App Store or Google Play) for the video identification. Your registration will be completed after the video call. If you don’t have a suitable device or if your nationality is not supported by video identification, you can easily activate your SIM in store or at the Deutsche Post office.

Country of your passport or ID card
Note: You must select the country that issued your identification document, not the country in which you are planning to use your Lebara SIM.
