How does our Bahrain eSIM work?

An eSIM is an embedded SIM card, and you probably already have an eSIM-compatible device. When you install an eSIM for a country or region, it lets your device connect to local networks in that area. This means your device will have data without needing Wi-Fi or paying roaming charges.

Use a Bahrain eSIM to stay connected

Bahrain is a small island country on the Persian Gulf, famous for its tall skyscrapers, desert towns, and scuba diving destinations.

While you explore this hub of cultural curiosities, you’ll want to share your travel experiences with your friends and family. That’s where a Bahrain eSIM can help you out.

By connecting to a local network, a Bahrain eSIM gives you access to data all throughout your travels.


How much travel data do I need in Bahrain?

Your data needs in Bahrain will mostly depend on your travel plans. If you’re planning to explore the outdoors and go sightseeing, you will want access to data on the go.

What makes a Bahrain eSIM a perfect choice is that it’s available in affordable and flexible data plans. You can buy a plan with a lesser amount of data and top up when it’s needed.

We also have a travel data calculator to help you estimate how much data you’ll need for your trip.


Will I pay roaming charges with a Bahrain eSIM?

Not at all. A Bahrain eSIM directly connects your smart device to a local network and gives you access to prepaid data, so there is no need to roam.

Please make sure you’ve turned off Data Roaming on your primary SIM (and confirmed you aren’t enrolled in a carrier travel plan) to prevent your home carrier from adding roaming charges to your next bill.
