eSIM Philippines

The archipelago of the Philippines in Southeast Asia, positioned at the extreme tip of the Asian continent, consists of more than 7,000 islands. These islands are situated between the South China Sea and the Philippine Sea. These beautiful shores are situated along one of the world's longest coastlines.

Renowned for its pristine blue waters, verdant mountains, white-sand beaches, coral reefs, and incredible wildlife, the Philippines is one of the world's most remarkable tourist destinations. The Philippines is renowned as one of the best destinations for scuba diving, snorkeling, hiking, and simply spending time in nature.

An internet connection is an absolute must for anyone visiting the Philippines. This is where acquiring a Philippines eSIM plan truly proves beneficial. One of its primary advantages is its ease of use during travel. Changing your usual SIM card is an absolute must if you visit a foreign country. With eSIM, you can quickly and easily purchase and activate a wide range of data plans.

Use a dependable service provider like KnowRoaming when you purchase an eSIM package with data services to save up to 90% on roaming charges. Travelers to the Philippines can find the perfect package with an eSIM that meets all their connectivity needs from KnowRoaming.

This article, which focuses on traveling to the Philippines, will explain how you can get an affordable, hassle-free eSIM for use on your travels.

How do Philippines eSIM packages work?

An eSIM is an embedded or digital SIM that functions similarly to a traditional physical SIM card. Instead of installing a physical SIM card that can be used in the Philippines, go to a website of an eSIM provider such as KnowRoaming and purchase a package to do your roaming with.

You can stop changing SIM cards while you travel. For simpler, quicker connectivity wherever you go, get your eSIM in advance.

Before you activate an eSIM on your phone, make sure it is compatible with eSIMs. You can then go ahead and purchase a data plan before you leave for the Philippines. You can acquire a data plan that is valid for seven to thirty days in the Philippines.

The next step is to activate the plan using the QR code that your mobile device's eSIM provides. So, all you have to do is buy, activate, and switch on.

How to activate your Philippines eSIM data plan?

You must have a functioning, dependable internet connection in order to install and activate your eSIM. We also recommend activating your eSIM prior to departure or upon arrival in the Philippines. As soon as you activate your eSIM, you can start using it.

Ensure that your phone is not network locked, since an eSIM will then not work. Once you unlock your phone, using any eSIM should not cause any issues.

Installing and activating an eSIM is quite easy. Let's have a look at how to set up your KnowRoaming eSIM.

Scan the QR code on the checkout page or the confirmation email you received from KnowRoaming, then accept and continue all prompts.

When you arrive in the Philippines, follow these steps to activate your eSIM on your Android or iOS device:

On Android devices

  • Go to Settings on your phone.
