Additional Information

eSIM South Korea

Nature and tranquility are always within easy reach of the more expected hustle and urban sprawl of South Korea, thanks to its relatively compact size and great transit infrastructure. Despite offering a very unique cultural experience and remarkably easy travel, the Korean peninsula appears enticingly undiscovered by conventional tourism.

In this beautiful country, you will find a wide variety of landscapes, from verdant rice paddies dotted with the occasional urban pocket along a breathtaking, rocky coastline to misty archipelagos and pine-clad mountains.

Having access to dependable, fast internet is almost a necessity when you are traveling abroad. When traveling in South Korea, the easiest way to access the internet is through an international eSIM package.

Without needing to get a local SIM card, you can use an eSIM to start using data services as soon as you arrive at your destination. Installing a physical card is not necessary, as eSIMs seamlessly integrate into your device.

A virtual SIM, known as an "eSIM" or "embedded SIM," enables you to use a cellular data plan without a real SIM card. Numerous Apple, Android, and Windows devices made after 2018 have supported eSIMs. To use an eSIM, you just need to buy a cellular data plan online from a provider such as KnowRoaming and activate it by inputting an activation code or scanning a QR code. The plan is loaded directly into your handheld device's integrated eSIM. After that, you can connect to mobile data networks from anywhere.

This guide will cover everything you need to know about South Korea eSIM plans.

How to activate your South Korean eSIM data plan?

eSIM technology's ease of use has completely changed how we establish mobile network connections. It's really simple to install and activate an eSIM. You will receive detailed activation and installation instructions for an eSIM via email or on screen right away. It's possible for anyone to activate and install it.

Make sure your phone is not network locked before using an eSIM. To ensure a smooth setup process, we recommend installing your eSIM just before your departure, as installation requires a stable Internet connection, which might not be the case when you arrive in South Korea.

Once you have installed your eSIM in your home country, you can turn it off until you reach your destination. The package can only be activated when you use your eSIM in the country.

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