An eSim is a virtual sim card (embedded sim) that you can use to connect to data services while you’re traveling. It’s not a physical sim card that you insert on your phone. Usually, you scan a code that gives your phone access to the data plan package of that eSim.

An eSim data plan is a great way to get a data or internet package outside of your home sim card, or phone carrier service from Europe. And because you are using an eSim, you don’t have to worry about changing your phone number for Whatsapp, imessage, Telegram, or any other messaging apps.

Once you purchase an eSim, you’ll immediately be emailed a QR code that you can scan, and if you should be connected to data immediately. There are a few eSims in Dubai available for tourists and prepaid eSim data plans.

Du and Etisalat are the main phone operators in Dubai. Du and Etisalat don’t offer eSim for tourists in Dubai only with a subscription plan.

Difference between an eSim vs getting a data plan

Ease of access to a data or internet package is the biggest difference of an eSim over a data plan from Regular mobile data carriers in your country. With an eSim, instead of buying the physical sim, you can buy a package online and activate it wherever you are.

Remember that you’re buying internet data and not credits for sending text messages/SMS, or making phone calls. You can use regular messaging apps for these like Whatsapp, Telegram, Messenger or iMessage.

Once you have your eSim confirmation, you’ll get the code. You can save this code in your phone as an image, and scan it later, or scan it now, and you’ll immediately activate it.

Dubai eSim for Tourists What do I need to have to get a data package for Dubai

Before you can get an eSim Dubai data package, you need to first make sure that your phone supports the eSim functionality. Unfortunately this is not available for all phones. It became available in the last year or two, making only the newest phone versions to support this feature.

If you are using an iPhone or iPad running SIM card functionality, these are the models that support the eSim feature for iOS.

Your ipad needs to have the sim functionality to get the esim feature.

This is how you activate an esim with iOS devices.

Check if your phone is Unlocked

The idea of having an eSim is to have another carrier providing data service/internet service to your phone. Even if your phone supports the eSim functionality, the phone needs to be open or unlocked to use any data/sim company.

Locked phones are usually the phones you purchased with a data plan with a sim card or carrier service, where you have plans that you pay monthly until your contract expires, and allowed you to get your phone at a discount or for free.

BEST TIME TO VISIT DUBAI

Dubai has a really hot desert climate. Summer (late May to September) is scorching hot that it’s uncomfortable for people who are not used to this weather.

We suggest that you visit during winter (November to March) when the weather is good for outdoor activities. If you have booked your travel during summer, don’t worry as there are many things to do in Dubai to beat the heat- like going to the mall, etc.

Check here the weather in Dubai!

CURRENCY AND EXCHANGE RATE IN DUBAI AND ATMS

The currency of Dubai is called Dirham and this is the money you will use while you travel around the country. And the exchange rate is €1= 4.4 AED. Also if you are bringing a debit card you will find many ATMs all over Dubai. You can pay in most of places with card.
