Sri Lanka: SMS Guidelines

MCC: 413
Dial Code: 94

Alphanumeric Sender IDs are supported.

For Networks Dialog (41302) and Mobitel (41301) Alphanumeric Sender IDs are only supported with registration.

Network Mobitel (41301) only allows OTP, transactional traffic. Messages carrying non-OTP traffic will be rejected by the Network.

The use of generic Alpha Sender IDs is not recommended. Alpha Senders should be directly related to the message content.

Please make sure to always refer to our Acceptable Use Policy for Messaging.
