The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia now offers a range of SIM cards from multiple networks. Several packages are tailored to meet tourists’ communication and data requirements. 

A reliable SIM card will provide an individual with extensive coverage and dependable services in most areas, especially the top tourist destinations and cities. 

Without further ado, let’s check out some of the most reliable and popular options for visitor SIMS in KSA today:

Prepaid SIMS are easy to buy. Stores, online platforms, and the airport are all reliable locations. However, you might be asked to present your passport, Iqama, ID, etc. 

A word of warning, though: quite a few street vendors are trying to sell pre-card SIMS at discounted prices. Please don’t get any of these; they’re probably already registered in someone else’s place.  


With Saudi Arabia opening its doors to tourists in 2019, most visitors need at least one visitor sim per group. Sometimes, SIM cards and numbers are available to people when they purchase tourist packages, Hajj packages, or Umrah Packages. 

In any case, it’s undoubtedly a great boon to have several reliable choices when visiting KSA! Conduct your research and see which package suits you best.
