How does our New Zealand 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.

Will I pay roaming charges with a prepaid eSIM for New Zealand?

You won’t pay a penny in roaming charges!

Install your New Zealand eSIM while you have a strong internet connection (either at home, or while already travelling), and then activate your prepaid New Zealand data package when you’re ready to use it.

To avoid roaming charges on your primary SIM, please make sure you’ve turned off Data Roaming on your primary SIM to prevent your home carrier from adding roaming charges to your next bill.

FAQs about using a New Zealand eSIM

Check my device

Most newer phones, tablets, and computers are already eSIM-compatible, so use our eSIM device checker to make sure you have a device that can accept an eSIM.

We have detailed eSIM installation instructions for all compatible devices, so whether you’re looking to add eSIM data to an iPhone or iPad, Google Pixel, Samsung Galaxy, or something else, we’ll be able to walk you through the eSIM set-up process easily.
