In some countries, telecommunications regulators or national regulatory authorities (NRA) impose restrictions and conditions on the use of telephone numbers. These are legal requirements that should be respected at all times to avoid the risk of having your phone number blocked.
These regulatory bodies may require you to activate your number depending on the type of number and the country. Check if activation applies to you by visiting our coverage page.
If a number requires activation, a pop-up will notify you of the activation requirements before you purchase the number.
Refer to our coverage page to find activation requirements for a particular number. Gather the documents you need for activation. Activate the number by submitting the required documents on the console's verification tab. You can also upload verification documents using the Plivo API.
