Arrival ESim For Travelers

When traveling to Thailand we advise purchasing an ESIM before you arrive if your phone supports it. This will allow you to have a instant data connection when you land in Thailand, and you can avoid the queues, and hassle obtaining a simcard at a phone shop.

You can get a ESim card by clicking HERE. It only takes about 1 minute to setup, and you will be ready for your arrival in Thailand.

What is an eSIM Card?

An eSIM card is an embedded SIM card that is built into your smartphone or other compatible device. Unlike a physical SIM card, an eSIM does not need to be swapped out when you switch carriers or plans. Instead, you can activate or deactivate the eSIM remotely using an app or website.

eSIM Card Availability in Thailand

eSIM cards are available in Thailand, and many of the latest smartphone models from Apple, Samsung, Google, and other manufacturers support eSIMs. If you're traveling to Thailand, it's a good idea to check whether your smartphone is eSIM compatible before you arrive.

Why You Need an eSIM Card for Traveling to Thailand

There are several reasons why you should consider purchasing an eSIM card for traveling to Thailand:

  • Convenience - With an eSIM card, you can activate or deactivate your plan remotely using an app or website. This means you don't need to go to a retail store to purchase a physical SIM card.
  • Flexibility - If you need to switch carriers or plans while in Thailand, you can easily do so with an eSIM card. You don't need to worry about swapping out physical SIM cards or finding a new store to purchase one.
  • Cost-effectiveness - Many eSIM providers offer prepaid plans that can save you money compared to purchasing a traditional roaming plan from your home carrier.


If you're planning to travel to Thailand, an eSIM card can be a convenient and cost-effective way to stay connected while you're abroad. Whether you purchase an eSIM from a local carrier or a third-party provider, make sure to check that your smartphone is eSIM compatible and that the eSIM you purchase will work in Thailand.


What is an ESim?

An eSIM lets you change your wireless carrier, data, or service plan through software. On eSIM devices, in general, you can go to a menu or take a photo of a QR code to change your carrier or service plan on the fly. You don't need to go to a store, wait for the mail, or fiddle with a tiny chip. You can also often use two different lines on the same device, such as a home and work line, or switch between different plans depending on where you are.
