As long as we all have the freedom to travel, more people will continue to flock to the United Arab Emirates owing to simplified visa requirements

As long as we all have the freedom to travel, more people will continue to flock to the United Arab Emirates owing to simplified visa requirements, as well as their desire to tour the seven Emirates' world-class attractions. And whilst we travel, we will always feel the need to stay connected to our closest family and friends, perhaps more than ever before. That’s why Virgin Mobile offers a Tourist SIM to help you keep in touch.

Tourist SIM card plans for you

Every plan on a Virgin Mobile prepaid SIM card is designed to keep you connected, when you visit the UAE. You can enjoy the Virgin Mobile Tourist SIM card, loaded with local and international minutes as well as all the necessary data to simply ping your friends a message or a holiday snap or two.

Start your trip with picking up a Tourist SIM up as soon as you land from Virgin Mobile kiosks at the airport. If you’re in a hurry when you land, you can also grab a SIM at any Virgin Megastore in the country, when you have more time.

Whether you’re planning to stay 7, 10 or 15 days, Virgin Mobile SIM card plans are specifically designed to cater to your travel needs with ample minutes and data.
Select the SIM card plan that’s right for your stay, packed with perks you’d expect from Virgin.

Costing as little as AED 150, this Virgin Mobile SIM plan offers you 21GB of data with 3GB to use a day, as well as 30-minute local calls and 20 minutes of international calls.

10-Day Plan

Staying more than one week in Dubai means you’ll need more from your plan. Pay AED200 for a 10-day plan and get 40GB allowing you to use 4GB per day. The 10-day plan provides you with 30 minutes of local calls and 20 minutes of international calls.

15-Day Plan
