If you plan on visiting Saudi Arabia any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Saudi Arabia 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 Saudi Arabia is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Saudi Arabia cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Saudi Arabia cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Saudi Arabians themselves use—the local Saudi Arabian cell phone system. 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 likewise enjoy the benefit of SMS text messaging, voicemail, a local cell phone number in Saudi Arabia, and FREE incoming calls. The prepaid feature gives you complete control over your costs, and with our low domestic and international calling rates, having a cell phone in Saudi Arabia is affordable for all. You will save even more with per second billing, which guarantees that you will only be charged for the time you actually spend on calls. Access to customer service from your Saudi Arabia cellular phone is available 24 hour a day, so you’ll always have assistance with any unexpected issues or questions about your calls. No yearly contract, monthly charges, or credit check is involved.

Your Saudi Arabia SIM Card will require a SIM-unlocked GSM cell phone that supports the 900 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 Saudi Arabia SIM card includes EGP 5 preloaded as well as two EGP 50 airtime vouchers which you may load when you arrive in Saudi Arabia. Additional airtime is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers, also called reload codes, in Saudi Arabia. These airtime vouchers are available locally throughout Saudi Arabia at most convenience stores, petrol stations and Mobily authorized dealers and distributors. The airtime vouchers are available in 6 denominations:

Recharge Card Value Validity Period (days)
SR 30


SR 60 30
SR 90 60
SR 150 120
SR 240 240


To add the voucher, simply scratch off the gray protective layer to reveal your voucher code. When typed into the keypad of your international cell phone, the voucher will credit your SIM card balance 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! Incoming calls are always free even when you run out of airtime.


Service Life

The Saudi Arabia SIM card is initially valid for 120 days, beginning the day you arrive in Saudi Arabia. Every time you add airtime, the validity period will be extended based on the voucher. After the validity period, there will be a 15 day grace period when you will still receive calls only. After the 15 days, you will have another 60 day period to add airtime and reactivate your SIM card account. If you fail to add airtime within 60 days, your SIM card will expire and you will need to purchase a new Mobily SIM card for service.
