If you have a post­paid SIM, it has the best and most amaz­ing offers for trav­ellers. Its dai­ly cheap­est post­paid roam­ing pack­age pro­vides 1GB of data and 15 min­utes for mak­ing and receiv­ing calls valid for 1 day. Its price is AED 60 and you can also get a 35 AED plan that pro­vides 500 MB of data. Dai­ly roam­ing pack­age selec­tion depends on user needs and bud­get.

Post­paid Roam like the home week­ly voice and data plan is offer­ing 25GB of data and 3000 min­utes to any pre­ferred part­ner. It costs 250.00 AED per week valid for 7 days and can be sub­scribed by dial­ing *177#. This pack­age does not allow you to receive calls from abroad but you can make calls using these min­utes. It is offer­ing good ser­vices at a rea­son­able price.

If you need call­ing min­utes on the same bud­get, you can acti­vate the Com­bo week­ly pack that pro­vides 500 min­utes for receiv­ing and call­ing and 2.5GB roam­ing data for only 250.00 AED per week.

Umrah and Hajj Packages

Enjoy free min­utes and data for 14 days instead of 7 days in 2024. Dur­ing Umrah or Hajj in Sau­di Ara­bia, cus­tomers can call any num­ber of Sau­di Ara­bia net­works Zain, Mobi­ly and STC. Peo­ple going for Hajj and Umrah can make and receive calls to Sau­di Ara­bia, Unit­ed Arab Emi­rates and oth­er coun­tries (lim­it­ed options) using these pack­ages.

If you go to Sau­di Ara­bia, you won’t face sig­nal prob­lems there because Eti­salat is con­nect­ed to all three net­works includ­ing Mobi­ly, STC and Zain. It auto­mat­i­cal­ly selects the net­work with the most sig­nals and pro­vides you with a fast and good ser­vice. This roam­ing pack­age is avail­able for both pre­paid and post­paid cus­tomers which I am writ­ing below.

Prepaid:

This pack­age is avail­able for pre­paid cus­tomers who can get 650 incom­ing and out­go­ing min­utes in KSA and UAE. 50 min­utes can be used for call­ing oth­er pre­ferred coun­tries, exclud­ing KSA. Include 7GB of data, cus­tomers can get it in AED 100 valid for 14 days.

Postpaid: (Updated)

Post­paid cus­tomers can get 10GB of mobile data and 1000 incom­ing and out­go­ing min­utes in KSA, UAE and oth­er pre­ferred coun­tries. This pack­age is valid for 14 days instead of 7 days if you sub­scribe for a lim­it­ed time (Must check the offer by con­firm­ing by call­ing Eti­salat 101). While liv­ing in KSA, you can call all local and land­line num­bers in KSA and UAE includ­ing some inter­na­tion­al num­bers.

You may have to pay more expen­sive call rates when you con­tact your loved ones for longer peri­ods. I would sug­gest you sub­scribe to this pack­age to avoid pay­ing high charges. In this post, I am not doing any kind of mar­ket­ing but giv­ing you some kind of advice.

Best Etisalat Postpaid Roaming Call and Data Packages

Many offers are not pro­vide the call-receiv­ing facil­i­ties on Eti­salat. You have to pay for receiv­ing calls from any­where who­ev­er, you have cred­it in your phone. The week­ly home voice plan pro­vides 3000 Out­go­ing min­utes and 500 Incom­ing call­ing min­utes.

Peo­ple who talk a lot and need to talk can take full advan­tage of this offer. Eti­salat charges you 3 AED per minute if you make calls with­out any pack­age but you can­not receive calls from it.

You have to acti­vate a sep­a­rate pack­age to receive the call. If you acti­vate a week­ly home voice plan that does not pro­vide inter­net access, you can eas­i­ly receive calls from any net­work and make calls to a pre­ferred loca­tion. You can get 500 min­utes for receiv­ing calls from any­where and 3000 min­utes to call on pre­ferred loca­tions and net­works.

  • To dis­able roam­ing ser­vices text ‘CSROAM’ to 1010
  • To check the pack­age details dial *170# and fol­low the instruc­tions
  • You can also call 101 to know and talk with a cus­tomer rep­re­sen­ta­tive
