Due to security reasons, getting a local sim card in India for foreigners can be troublesome. Foreigners are required to provide 2 passport sized photo and a scanned copy of their passports, on top of that, it takes 3 working days to activate the SIM. “We see an opportunity to bring an end-to-end solution for travelers who are visiting India. FLEXIROAM can play a major part in facilitating the process of activating SIM cards and helping travelers to top-up”, says Jef Ong, CEO of FLEXIROAM.
