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.
