If you plan on visiting Cyprus any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Areeba prepaid Cyprus SIM card with a GSM cell phone 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 Cyprus is a trouble-free option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Cyprus cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Cyprus 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 3 CYP ($6 USD) of starter airtime credit, SMS text messaging, MMS, WAP, GPRS, a local phone number while in Cyprus, per second billing, and free incoming calls. What’s more, you’ll have 24 hour a day access to customer service simply by dialing 123 from your Cyprus cellular phone. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Cyprus SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 and 1800 frequencies. 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

As you use your Cyprus mobile phone, the airtime rate will be deducted from your Cyprus SIM card account balance. From time to time you will need to add prepaid airtime vouchers to recharge your SIM card. To recharge your local Cyprus SIM card with a voucher, simply:

  • Purchase an Areeba airtime (top-up card) voucher from any tobacco shop, convenience store, petrol station or newspaper stand.
  • Scratch off the gray panel to reveal your 14 digit airtime top-up code.
  • Dial *202*, the 14 digit code, [SEND].

Remember, once the airtime balance on your Cyprus SIM card is depleted, you do not need to purchase another SIM chip, just a top-up voucher.

Service Life

The initial validity period for your Cyprus SIM card is 30 days, while for the all top up cards it is 12 months. If the validity period expires, all outgoing calls are barred. During a 10 day grace period you can top up as normal. Any unused airtime credit will be lost if you do not top up during these 10 days.

After the 12 month validity period plus the 10 day grace period, you can only receive incoming calls for the next 90 days. If you want to reactivate your SIM card you will have to visit a local Areeba shop or purchase a top up card and call 136 to recharge and reactivate your account. If you do not reactivate your account, you will be disconnected from network and lose your Cyprus mobile phone number and any remaining airtime credit.
