Move viber to a new phone while you don't have its sim card to receive verification code!

Hello all, hope you are all doing well.
I have viber installed on my phone since couple of years ago. I moved to another country however I kept my viber on the same number as before.
Now I want to change my mobile phone to a brand new one. I don't have that sim card which my viber was activated with to receive the activation code and have viber on my new phone.
I can receive activation code on viber app or viber desktop, ut not normal text message.
Is there any way I can activate my viber without having my old sim card?

Contacting Viper Support regarding this matter will probably be a wise decision to make, in my opinion.
