I am porting my existing phone number over to Virgin Media. How long will this take?

Porting requests are generally completed within 5 working days depending on the line type.  

Number porting can only proceed upon receipt of a fully completed porting request form and a copy of your most recent provider’s bill.  

If you have requested your numbers to be ported from your old provider, a member of our Porting Team will be in touch over the next few days to organise a time and date for this to be done.  
In the meantime, if you have any questions regarding our porting process please email our Porting Team
