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.

It automatically selects the network with the most signals and provides you with a fast and good service.

This package is available for prepaid customers who they 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.

While living in KSA, you can call to 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 providing 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.
