Sim Card

Where can you get a SIM card in Dubai?

Getting a SIM card in Dubai is a quick and easy process. Tourists above the age of 18 can get a complimentary Tourism SIM card from telecom operator Du when they cross the arrivals’ counter at Dubai International Airport. Those with a transit visa, visit visa, visa on arrival and GCC citizens can take advantage of this offer and receive 1GB free mobile data valid for 24 hours.

Travellers can then top this up at a du kiosk in the arrivals area of the airport or Dubai Duty Free. Other local operators – Etisalat and Virgin – also have kiosks at the airport offering prepaid SIM cards tailored specifically for tourists and business travellers with various options, offers and discounts on voice, data and text bundles. They can also get a SIM card in the city from major shopping hubs like Deira City Center, Burjuman Mall, The Dubai Mall and Mall of the Emirates.
