Documents Required for International Student. I Don't have SIN.


hi, i went into a koodomobile booth 1 day, and i planned to buy a phone. they asked for a canadian ID, which i dont have yet, i asked them if my passport will be ok. they said no. how am i supposed to get a phone w/o canadian ID, i just arrived here. and cant buy a phone. btw, i have passsport, landing papers, offer letter from the college, canadian bank account, school id will be issued after 5 days though.

this is always a tough spot for international students because IDs needed have to be government issued... you could always try prepaid until you get the correct documents? Get your province's age of Majority card for photo ID and try again

Yeah, but your passport should be good enough. I'd talk to the store manager. I have friends with koodo who only used a passport and maybe some other id and got a phone with them. Maybe just the rep didn't know.
alright, i will contact the support team for this problem.
You could also go pre-paid.
phone+prepaid, so do i have to pay the full amount of phone immediately?
