Additional Information


Visitors to the United Arab Emirates can rest easy knowing that almost all of the places in the country have reliable, speedy WiFi. This is necessary, as it would enable you to order an Uber, use Google Maps, or find local places of interest to visit. Remember that you might need to find nearby restaurants, plan your vacation while traveling, or access your banking information as well.

Since the introduction of eSIM technology, connectivity has advanced significantly. It is important to choose between using an eSIM or a conventional physical SIM card when making travel plans to the United Arab Emirates. This decision will have a big impact on your vacation experience.

An eSIM is a virtual or digital SIM that integrates into your smartphone. You can use your eSIM plan as soon as you purchase it, and you won't need to put any physical cards into your phone. You can also purchase a data plan to use in another country in order to save money on expensive roaming costs.

Let's examine everything you need to know about using a UAE eSIM to have a stress-free holiday.

How does a UAE eSIM work?

The first thing you need to confirm is whether your phone is eSIM-compatible before purchasing an eSIM. If this is confirmed, you can select an eSIM provider associated with the United Arab Emirates, like KnowRoaming.

Purchase your eSIM before you depart for the UAE. You could also purchase it when you arrive in the UAE, as you can do it from the website. All you require is a stable Internet connection to install it.

Simply pay for your order, scan the QR code to install it, and activate it when you land. And that's all; you can go ahead and begin surfing the web right away.

How to activate your UAE eSIM data plan?

The introduction of eSIM technology has brought about a significant change in the way in which we create connections with mobile networks. You can easily activate and insert an electronic SIM.

Immediately after purchase, you should receive an email including detailed instructions for activating and installing your eSIM. Anyone can follow the easy instructions.

It's crucial to unlock your phone before buying an eSIM because you can't use an eSIM on a network-locked phone.

After purchasing an eSIM from KnowRoaming for the United Arab Emirates, the installation and activation are easy processes.

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 the UAE.

After you have installed your eSIM in your home country, you can turn the eSIM off until you reach the UAE. Activation of the package only occurs when you use your eSIM in the UAE.

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

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

On iOS devices

  • You need to first switch mobile data to your eSIM.
  • Go to Settings and tap on Mobile Data or Cellular Data.
  • On the Mobile Data page, select the Mobile Data option at the top.
  • Select your eSIM.
  • Turn on roaming for your eSIM.
  • On Android devices

  • Go to Settings on your phone.
  • Tap on Connections.
  • Tap on Sim Manager.
  • Tap on Mobile Data, and set it to your eSIM.
  • When you arrive, go to Settings.
