SIM Cards in Bosnia & Herzegovina: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Bosnia & Herzegovina – one of the nine countries with two names. It also has three official languages: Bosnian, Croatian & Serbian.

Formerly part of Yugoslavia, Bosnia and Herzegovina has an incredible history. Churches, cathedrals, and bridges – there is a lot to see.

But the country should not be visited just for history, even though there are many historical things to see. From winter sports in Sarajevo to Rafting in Banja Luka, Bosnia and Herzegovina can be a thrilling travel destination.

And I am sure you want to share your travel experiences online. It is expected nowadays, so share away!

However, you should know that international roaming can be expensive. If you do not watch out, you may face a costly bill when you go back home – one way to ruin your post-holiday mood.

Luckily, there is one way to stay connected for low rates, which is by getting local SIM cards when traveling. This would be buying a SIM card in Bosnia and Herzegovina. And everyone can do so without restrictions.

So how much will a Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM card cost you?

You can get a SIM card for as low as 4 BAM (2.20 USD) in the official stores of BH Telecom, m:tel, or HT Eronet. They are also sold in other establishments like grocery stores. A plan with 1 GB of data valid for 7 days can be purchased for 3 BAM (1.65 USD).

Those are some exciting prospects. At least, to me – I love cheap data (and you probably do too if you are reading this and are not planning on roaming when traveling).

But do not be too excited yet. There are still many things to know about getting a Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM card.

In this guide, I will go over everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Bosnia and Herzegovina. Let's do this.

What is the Best SIM Card in Bosnia and Herzegovina?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Bosnia and Herzegovina, I recommend going with BH Telecom or HT Eronet. BH Telecom has the best coverage and the fastest speeds. Contrastingly, HT Eronet is a cheaper option, but its coverage and speeds are not on par. However, it does offer more variety in plans.

So, who are all these mobile operators and what options are available for you?

Bosnia and Herzegovina has three mobile operators and one Mobile Virtual Network Operators (MVNO) offering prepaid services easily accessible to tourists:

  • BH Telecom
  • M:tel Bosnia and Herzegovina
  • HT Eronet
  • Haloo (HT Eronet MVNO)
Cellular Connectivity Illustration by Phone Travel Wiz

In this guide, I will stick to the mobile operators and the most popular MVNO, all in bold above, to limit the length of this guide (but also not to overwhelm you with all the options available).

But if you are interested in getting a SIM card from one of the unbolded MVNOs, you would have to do the research yourself for the time being. I stopped actively testing and reviewing MVNOs to spend time reviewing travel eSIMs instead, like the ones for Bosnia and Herzegovina.

Anyone living in or visiting Bosnia and Herzegovina can buy a Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM card with no real restrictions.

Where Can You Buy a Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM Card (+Costs)?

Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM cards are available in the official stores of the operators (BH Telecom, m:tel, HT Eronet), and other stores, such as post offices, grocery stores, newsstands, gas stations, and convenience stores. Some Bosnian and Herzegovinian airports sell (tourist) SIM cards (at inflated prices).

You can expect to pay the following for Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM cards:

  • BH Telecom: 5 BAM
  • M:tel Bosnia and Herzegovina: 4 BAM
  • HT Eronet: 4 BAM
  • Haloo (HT Eronet MVNO): 4 BAM

The following Bosnian and Herzegovinian mobile operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • BH Telecom: from 20 BAM
  • HT Eronet: 20 BAM
  • Haloo: 20 BAM

Note that SIM cards can be more expensive than those listed above when purchased at an airport.

(Travel) eSIMs for Bosnia and Herzegovina

In recent years, (travel) eSIMs have become extremely popular.

Especially after Apple made iPhones (14- & 15 series) sold in the United States eSIM-only, forcing its users to use eSIMs – even when abroad.

As a result, the adoption of eSIM technology by mobile operators worldwide rose impressively quickly.

Currently, no Bosnian and Herzegovinian mobile operator offers eSIMs to prepaid customers.

In my Bosnia and Herzegovina eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide (even in Bosnia and Herzegovina).

Buying an eSIM for Bosnia & Herzegovina Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Bosher, Alosim & Airalo)

Surprisingly, travel eSIMs can be cheaper than a Bosnian and Herzegovinian SIM card or eSIM in specific scenarios.

Moreover, Europe-wide and global eSIM options are also available at competitive prices (without having to deal with expensive international roaming rates).

In this Bosnia and Herzegovina SIM card buying guide (the one you are reading), I will stick to the local SIM cards and eSIM, but you can read my Bosnia and Herzegovina eSIM buying guide for more information about travel eSIMs covering the country.

But here is a quick overview already + applicable discount codes if you are interested in purchasing a travel eSIM for Bosnia and Herzegovina:

Here are some discount codes to sweeten the deal:

  • Airalo: FEB15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, FEB10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)

Once again, check out my Bosnia and Herzegovina eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.

Buying an eSIM for Bosnia & Herzegovina Guide (logos of Holafly, Nomad, Eurolink, Discover+, Bosher, Alosim & Airalo)

The eSIM guide is as comprehensive as this SIM card buying guide, but it solely focuses on travel eSIMs (while the guide you are reading focuses on local SIM cards and eSIMs for prepaid users (where applicable).

Make Your Own Plan – HT Eronet

With !hej Slagalica, you can customize your plan by setting how much data and how many minutes and SMS you want.

HT Eronet Make Your Own Plan
© HT Eronet

You can activate your own plan by texting the word PAKET with the Activation Code to 0637790.

The Activation Code will be different depending on your selection. Do note that the activation code should be written in this order: PAKET + Minutes Activation Code + SMS Activation Code + Data Activation Code.

That looks complicated, but let me explain and visualize.

Let's say I want 3 GB of data, 80 local minutes, and 150 local SMS. The Activation Code for data would be I3. For minutes, it would be M2. For SMS, it would be S2. So I would text PAKETM2S2I3 to 0637790.

An example with 3 GB, 80 local minutes, and 150 local SMS

You are not required to select all options. If I only wanted 3 GB of data, I would simply text PAKETI3 to 0637790.

If this is still too confusing, go to the Make Your Own Plan page (in Bosnian) and see what Activation Code the page recommends

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Bosnia & Herzegovina, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Haloo.

Especially if you get a Europe-wide eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported European countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

In my Bosnia & Herzegovina eSIM buying guide, I analyze various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Bosher (Bosnia & Herzegovina only) & Discover+ (125+ countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code FEB15 (15% off – first-time users only) or FEB10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Bosnia & Herzegovina – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Bosnia & Herzegovina – all variants include unlimited data – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

Once again, check out my Bosnia & Herzegovina eSIM buying guide to learn more about these eSIM options.
