If you plan on visiting Yemen any time soon, don’t take off without a prepaid SIM card. The Yemen 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 Yemen is a practical option for using your existing world phone as a prepaid Yemen cell phone while you’re in the country at a better rate than you’d pay for a Yemen cell phone rental. It’s also a trouble-free ticket to using the same options that the Yemenites themselves use—the local Yemenites 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 Yemen, 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 Yemen is affordable for all. Access to customer service from your Yemen 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 Yemen 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.
Domestic calling rates are per minute for outgoing calls within Yemen while you are in Yemen. All incoming calls regardless of where they originate are completely free!
International calls from your world cell phone have never been easier with your local Yemen SIM card. All calling rates are charged per minute for international outgoing calls from a Yemen SIM card while you’re in Yemen.
Your Yemen SIM card has an initial airtime balance of $6 and a $4 (Y.R. 800) airtime voucher. Additional airtime is available through the purchase of airtime vouchers, also called ‘Scratch’ cards. These airtime vouchers are available locally in Yemen at Tabac shops, convenience stores, Elcel shops and authorized dealers.
To add a 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 will credit your SIM card the respective Y.R. denomination you purchased.
Remember not to purchase another SIM card when your airtime balance is depleted; you only need a recharge voucher! Incoming calls are always completely free, even when you run out of airtime.
If you do not top-up your account within 30 days, any remaining airtime on your account will be forfeit. If you do not top-up within 60 days, your mobile phone number will be recycled. The 30 day period begins on the day you arrive in Yemen and turn on your cell phone.
