[[File:Wertkarte_Registrieren.jpg|thumb]]Unlike some other European countries, SIM cards in Austria have been anonymous and were not registered until the end of 2018. A new security law required all new prepaid SIM cards to be registered from 1/JAN/2019. All previously existing prepaid SIM cards need to be registered by 1/SEP/2019 or they will no longer be able to be recharged thereafter. Though all top-ups made until this date will remain valid beyond.

In the country, the branded shops of major providers will do the registration for free or a minimal charge. Often partner shops or post offices do the same but may charge up to 10 €. Most brands can be registered through an online verification process too, which is similar to Germany. Be aware that not all brands accept all foreign IDs from overseas countries for their online registration. These visitors should better go to a branded store instead. Citizens from EU countries can try the ''Foto-Identifikation ''which is now available online for most brands. For this process, you need to have a reliable internet connection and a cam as you upload a pic of your ID document and a selfie to get registered.
