If you plan on visiting Belize any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Belize SIM card provides a simple, convenient, and affordable way for any traveler to make and receive those all-important calls while abroad.

The prepaid SIM card for Belize is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Belize cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Belize cell phone rental. The SIM chip, combined with an unlocked GSM World cell phone, helps you keep the lines of communication open without being burdened by high international roaming surcharges applicable when you use your “home” SIM card abroad. You’ll also enjoy the benefit of BZD $40 BZD ($20 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local phone number while in Belize, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 08003444235 from your Belize cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Belize SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 1900 frequency. If you do not have your own international cell phone, we have several models available for your consideration. Please click here for more information.

Adding Airtime

Your local Barbados Digiflex SIM card has an initial airtime balance of BRD $20 ($10 USD) which includes BRD $10 preloaded on the SIM card and a BRD $10 airtime voucher. Additional airtime credit is available through the purchase of airtime or FLEXcards vouchers as they are referred to locally, not another SIM card, in Barbados. These airtime vouchers are available in Barbados at local convenience stores, Digicel shops and authorized dealers. The FLEXcards airtime vouchers are available in the following denominations:

  • BRD$10 ($5.60 USD)
  • BRD$20 ($10 USD)
  • BRD$50 ($15 USD)
  • BRD$75 ($26.20 USD)

To add the voucher, simply scratch off the grey protective layer to reveal your voucher code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher code will credit your Barbados SIM card the respective denomination you purchased.

Remember you do not need to purchase another SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! Your incoming calls are always free, even when you run out of airtime.

Service Life

Your Barbados SIM card is initially valid for 30 days. Every time you add airtime to your SIM card you have an additional 30 days from that date. If you do not recharge your SIM balance within 2 months, your mobile phone number will be recycled and any remaining airtime credit on your local Barbados SIM card will be forfeit. To get connected again you will be required to purchase a new SIM card. The validity period begins the day you arrive in Barbados and start using your phone.
