Qatar: Best Tourist eSIMs Reviewed (2024)

Are you thinking of traveling to Qatar soon and looking for the best travel eSIM?

Many eSIM providers are available nowadays, but not all are equal or good.

Some offer unlimited data, while others include a phone number for local, regional, or global use.

Some have blazing-fast speeds, while others have extended validity.

Whatever you need, there will be an eSIM for your liking.

In the case of Qatar, I recommend one of these eSIM providers, which I have tested in numerous countries on multiple continents:

  • Airalo
  • Alosim
  • Holafly
  • Nomad
    Airalo, Alosim, Holafly & Nomad Logos for eSIM Guides

It is also the largest eSIM provider, covering over 200 countries and territories.

The first eSIM I ever tested was one from Airalo (in the Netherlands).

I have tested Airalo eSIMs in more countries than other providers.

Airalo gives each country's eSIM a unique name often related to said nation.

Airalo Pearl Mobile (Qatar) eSIM

Airalo's Qatar eSIM is called Pearl Mobile.

As highlighted in the table earlier, there are six Qatar Pearl Mobile eSIM variants:

  1. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 5 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 9 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  3. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 12 USD
  4. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 5 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 17.50 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  5. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 10 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 30 USD
  6. Qatar/Pearl Mobile 20 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 49 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 19th of February.

With the Airalo Pearl Mobile eSIM, you can use the Vodafone Qatar network.

In my Qatar SIM card buying guide, I tell you more about which Qatari mobile operator(s) is/are the best in coverage or speed so you can manually select the network that would suit your needs.

Airalo Menalink eSIM

Next, we have the Airalo Menalink eSIM for use in Qatar and 14 other Middle Eastern and Northern African countries.

This eSIM was introduced in November 2022 after the success of Airalo's Asialink (Asiareview) and Eurolink (Europereview) eSIMs.

It is one more comprehensive Middle East eSIMs out there because it also covers popular Northern African countries (Egypt, Morocco, Sudan & Tunisia) instead of solely the Middle East/Gulf States.

Unfortunately, it is one of the more expensive regional Airalo eSIMs, as you will see soon.

Below is a price list of the three Menalink eSIM options:

  1. Middle East/Menalink 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD
  2. Middle East/Menalink 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 28 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  3. Middle East/Menalink 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 39 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 19th of February.

You can use the Ooredoo Qatar network with the Menalink eSIM (without 5G NR access).

In my ongoing Airalo Menalink review, I tell you all the 15 countries where the eSIM can be used.

Airalo Discover(+) eSIM

Lastly, we have the Airalo's global Discover and Discover+ eSIMs.

Airalo Discover+ eSIM

These eSIMs can be used in Qatar and 120+ other countries on each continent.

Previously, Airalo's Discover Global eSIM was kind of… meh.

Discover Global eSIM Airalo
© Airalo

I have had a decent experience with that eSIM, but I felt it could improve.

The new Discover(+) eSIMs have a maximum validity of 365 days (instead of 180) and can use 5G NR in most destinations.

Moreover, the + variant gives you an Austrian (+43) phone number.

As a result, the Discover+ eSIM can be up to 20 USD more expensive than the Discover eSIM, but the benefits are worth it, in my opinion (I have the + variant installed on my phone).

These Airalo Discover(+) eSIMs are available:

  1. Discover 1 GB eSIM for 7 days, costing 9 USD
  2. Discover+ 1 GB (with 10 minutes and 10 SMS) eSIM for 7 days, costing 15 USD
  3. Discover 2 GB eSIM for 15 days, costing 17 USD
  4. Discover+ 2 GB (with 20 minutes and 20 SMS) eSIM for 15 days, costing 27 USD
  5. Discover 3 GB eSIM for 30 days, costing 24 USD
  6. Discover+ 3 GB (with 30 minutes and 30 SMS) eSIM for 30 days, costing 36 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  7. Discover 5 GB eSIM for 60 days, costing 35 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  8. Discover+ 5 GB (with 50 minutes and 50 SMS) eSIM for 60 days, costing 50 USD
  9. Discover 10 GB eSIM for 180 days, costing 59 USD
  10. Discover+ 10 GB (with 100 minutes and 100 SMS) eSIM for 180 days, costing 79 USD
  11. Discover 20 GB eSIM for 365 days, costing 69 USD – most popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  12. Discover+ 20 GB (with 200 minutes and 200 SMS) eSIM for 365 days, costing 89 USD

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 19th of February.

For an entire list of countries where the eSIM can be used, you should check out my ongoing Airalo Discover+ eSIM review.

Although the map below may be helpful if you know your world map well.

Airalo Discover Global eSIM Eligible Countries Map Infographic by Phone Travel Wiz (October 2023 Version)

In every country I visit where I test country-specific Airalo eSIMs, I also try out its Discover+ eSIM (if it can be used there).

So you better check it out now and then to see if I wrote about the country/countries you plan to visit and read about the eSIM's performance in said country, as it is not always perfect.

Before Airalo updated its global eSIM, I used the old version (Discover Global) in 15+ countries. From August 2023, I will only test the Discover+ eSIM. This is why some country-specific reviews (like Hong Kong) still refer to Discover Global and show the old eSIM image instead of Discover+.

Remember that you can use code PTW for 5% off any Alosim purchase (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want).

Alosim is backed by AffinityClick, which is known for the Hushed app.

AffinityClick Logo

That app with the tagline “Temporary & Second Phone Number App for Wifi, Data Calling & Texting” has over 8 million downloads.

Hushed Screenshot

It took a while, but AffinityClick finally bundled its product, which is a big deal.

Why? With any Alosim eSIM purchase, you will get a Hushed redemption code, giving you up to 30 international minutes or 50 international SMS.

You get a free +1 (American or Canadian) phone number from one of the more than 300 supported area codes.

While it would be fantastic to get a Qatari phone number instead, it is impossible to get one for the time being due to local regulations.

Either way, Alosim is the only eSIM provider that gives you a phone number for each eSIM purchase.

And it has eSIMs for over 170 countries, including Qatar.

Now, it has eSIMs for more than 160 countries.

And more than 100 of them have unlimited data plans.

For many Middle Eastern countries Holafly has eSIMs for, it took a while before unlimited data plans were introduced (except for (Cyprus,) Israel and the United Arab Emirates.

However, most of them have unlimited data plans by now.

Holafly has five Qatar eSIMs:

Be aware that as of mid-2023, Holafly eSIMs with unlimited data plans (excluding European ones) are speed-restricted to 18 Mbps (the speeds are even slower in some countries).

While 18 Mbps is not exactly a snail's speed, much faster speeds are available for lower prices with other eSIM providers mentioned in this guide.

Anyway, with this eSIM, you can use the Ooredoo Qatar and Vodafone Qatar networks.

Nomad is an eSIM provider covering over 160 countries.

Its Middle Eastern presence was initially mediocre, but this was changed in Q2-Q3 of 2023.

This was when Nomad introduced eSIMs for multiple Middle Eastern countries, including Qatar.

Nomad Qatar eSIM

For Qatar, you have these five choices:

  1. Qatar 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (Nomad), costing 5 USD
  2. Qatar 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (eSIM Go), costing 10 USD
  3. Qatar 3 GB eSIM for 30 days (eSIM Go), costing 17 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

  5. Qatar 10 GB eSIM for 30 days (eSIM Go), costing 37 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers

Note: Phone Travel Wiz reader popularity ranking was updated in December based on data up to the 30th of December (2023 data only). The (promotional) prices were updated on the 19th of February.

If an eSIM is powered by eSIM Go, you can use 5G NR (unless the country does not have the technology yet). If the eSIM is powered by JoyTelecom, ” Nomad” (unknown provider), Nomad Black, or Truphone (rebranded to 1Global) instead, you will be restricted to 4G/LTE.

The best way to determine which Qatari mobile operator(s) your eSIM can use is by pressing See Details on the Nomad Qatar eSIM product page.

Nomad Global eSIM

At last, we have the Nomad Global eSIM.

The eSIM can be used in 109 or 136 countries, depending on your chosen variant.

Truphone (rebranded to 1Global) powers the 109 Countries Plan, giving you up to 4G/LTE access.

Meanwhile, the 136 Countries Plan is powered by eSIM Go, giving you 5G NR access in about half of the supported countries.

Each plan has three eSIMs: 1 GB for 7 days, 3 GB for 30 days & 5 GB for 30 days.

Below is a price list of all the Nomad Global eSIMs:

  1. Global 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (109 Countries), costing 25 USD – very popular with Phone Travel Wiz readers
  2. Global 1 GB eSIM for 7 days (136 Countries), costing 10 USD
  3. Global 3 GB eSIM for 30 days (109 Countries), costing 40 USD

Because I have no ongoing review for this eSIM (its short validity makes it challenging to be a proper global eSIM), you can use the Nomad Global product page or the map below to find all supported countries.
