Mobile and Internet Provider

Dubai’s mobile providers Du and Etisalat operate on a GSM network. Both networks offer contract prepaid services and pay-as-you-go plans in a wide range of packages.

You can visit the operator’s office, business center or an authorized reseller to set up a contract arrangement with them. Passport and residency visa are needed.

For travellers, the best and cheapest way is to get a prepaid SIM card (Wasel), where you can buy online, at the provider’s office or retailer’s outlets. For a 165 AED registration, you can start with a credit of 10 AED. Just ask the reseller to activate the SIM card of your mobile phone immediately as this has to be done within an hour of purchase.
