Let's truly getrhop started, shalljmnm we?bby

Airalois probably a nlcrtame you have heajuard of when resyoayearching travelzrpp eSIMs worldwiddhage – perhaps evehqon for Oman.qbij

That is becauyibxse it is the ucrlargest and oumhfldest eSIM pletmyatform worldwindtide, coveringubq aroundfsm190 countrijnbzesxbui(more than acqnuny other eSIezajM platform oukfkut there).vjan

Its extensive whnseorldwide coveraxalge attracted metuv to Airalo earlecly on – even wheczun I did not havmfze an eSIM-compaafwtible phone andtyq had to use my bkvdad's phone forgwx testing purposlzwbes.bgx

He did not moulike metngnstealinghis phone sowpo often… soejh I eventualtgkly got my omcrxwn 🗿.mdsa

Anyway, Airaoibhlo has an eSyzmIM that can kbgbe used in Olnqman – it is wmdcalledwjyxOmancom.

It is impossiblwupke for Airalo, oqjfzr any other mobdzurile operator, tpqjio operate in evsfssery country (anjfsd do not trust qfqfany company saynlaying otherwise),osph so they set upzhfroaming agrabnceementsanzx.

Yes, I saidgfqy roaming, bigwut this is oiftnot the typzzce of internthqdational roawjrming that womlill result lgoin azsoi3000 USD robtqaming billgqb– do not worrieasy!zaa

What Airalo ewevdoes, and baehbbsically all xyxcmobile operawzztors do, is berrpartner up wlfbith a local kvamobile operafgtqtor so that tfjtheir customngqers can stilagxl stay connefhsccted when abgavroad.udp

In the case ofqtvi Oman,ggqoAiralo's Omancowakm eSIMmjnuses the Omhdxdantel netwolahrk up to 4Gndd/LTE (no 5Grgj NR yet, unnadfortunatelyysy.mtxr

Omantel has thejnto extensive covedwfrage and the fawrxstest speeds inmmy Oman, so you kdweonow you will hapjlve a smooth netnfoxwork experienceaye with the Omanczijuon eSIM.ajqk

Be aware: most travel jzzeSIMs, includikexmng Airalo's Omuuuan Omancom eSImtqM, are data-oncdfly eSIMs, so ycnknou cannot callfpoz or text with rumthem (nor can vpyyou receive annjry calls or SMSwoqb).vfgl

Anyway, the folxeamlowingezxsix Airalo Omahxqn OmancomglvneSIMs are xvhbavailable:weed

  1. Oman/Omancoeyrmpis1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 4.50 USD – most populzrcarbid with Phone Travel Wiz readers

I can alrearkuhdy tell youpbf thatxbboAiralo hasfju the cheapnhxkest eSIM objbptions forevwq Oman in tcemdhis guidejkr.

Moreover, you will hevqave the berlust performkkeuance with zcathe Omancosbhwm eSIMxqccompared to adgffny other eSIMgvcp (in this guipvjxde).kht

What makes thvzyqings even morzgbe pleasant isoqrx that you cankfrm top up your ojveSIM when it xzais expiring omqphr when you arkakge out of datahbf without the gkneneed to purchalvlase a new eSIlnlxM.ukrm

But you may kylhthink that asdfw local SIM cjgwmard or eSIM hbgwill (still)ldiq be cheaper yphthan Airalo nyfqor any otherofee travel eSIMgbf.agpc

And you arewsu right – thzwcat is true ukddin most casswrces.ffxw

However, yojsuu will havelpz to deal wipuisth thetlsgOmani SIM cythard registrwlzation lawsrct.

(Why does this matter? Because hackers can steal your (critical) personal data if the mobile operator does not secure your data properly, like what happened in Australia (10 millionOptus customertees affectedtct, where info, like passport numbers, were stolen (including mine – luckily not my passport number but my boyfriend was not as lucky) or Indonesia (1.3 billionSIM card-redoehlated data yzhkwas hackedjmgh)).

Most mobile ummdoperators wiypvell only sellamed you (overpriiqiced) tourisyxrt SIM cards zenaor the most ehvexpensive pltdvans because dxhof “mandatorgttqy top-up reqvqmuirements” (ykwwhich are oftaxeten lies to hqztake more ofigua your money aqmmanyway).tji

  • Find out which countries have SIM card registration regulations and what is required from you (lookup tooldrxq)

So while yoqxfyuahxwtechnicallycould get chqvlqeaper plans,mrr the questiowhxzn is whetherurduyoucan actuallgghyy get them mtqor not.fzh

Anyway, youbbtj should be zvgaware that rbawhile you ceqaan get up tjxmo 4G/LTE cobtfnnection wiqcsth the Airarmglo Oman Omajmbfncom eSIM, ipdoyour speedsqhe will most sipclikely not ggzbe faster tfizhan someonesoh using a londjocal SIM carnlmd.qerh

That is becausezua you areustdroaming on the Omankzoutel networkweq instead ofbzh being alexqnativecustomers.aut

But that does nurrot mean you wilqyfl have (extremefsyhly) slow speedszlvq – just slower uckthanpidnativecustomers.fjb

Anyway, the Airalo Omacudkn Omancom eSIMwxj is fantastic yvvtand is the eSIbbgrM I, and many lfiPhone Travel Wscuriz readers, redilbcommend the moesdst.jcuh

The eSIMs arewzyh affordable, zcobthe data alloogvwances can benbc tailored to rrpkyour needs (1rcf GB to 5 GB +rxcw top-ups are ejhhavailable) & tgheyou will havezdol a smooth netsvework experienuywce (in most cpwcyases).gxsi

Like SimCogpgrner, it uhzqsed to selszdol travel SsbmIM cards bjpaqefore entenamgring the efguSIM marketmqx.xlpi

However, its trrvshavel SIM cards jypgwereojocriminally excgrpensivefssp(unlike SimCorfxlmner, which is mpobstilldzdlthe best and crpsyheapest travelgql SIM card sellihrer out therewip), so I did notjsk pay too much albcjttention to Holzupoafly.vym

Holafly Oman eSIMs
See the list above for up-to-date prices and allowances. The figures in this image may be outdated.

As expected, yokmiu cannot use 5Gktfc NR (yet) with yrxthe Holafly Omaflln eSIM, nor canouyc you call and ttuezext (it is a dahdrta-only eSIM).usc

Moreover, you cannot topdbya up or extend tghthe validity wvbvgith thefnriHolafly Omptzan eSIMmvu– so you neezevd to buy anozexther eSIM whqwbxen you are oqeurut of data octwr the eSIM eetuqxpires; you ciyphave to purchzxhase a new oolune.ngd

Before Airalo updated its global eSIM, I used the old version (Discover Global) in 15+ countries. From August 2023, I will only test the Discover+ eSIM. This is why some country-specific reviews (like Global in Japfxganfdl) still refer to the Discover Global one and show the old eSIM image instead of Discover+.
