SIM Cards in Egypt: The Best Prepaid Plans | 2024 Guide

Egypt – known for its pyramids, the Nile River & the Suez Canal.

The country has a rich history, which can still be experienced to this day.

From camel riding through the Sahara desert to seeing a pyramid from the inside.

From fantastic beaches to temples- Egypt has it all.

Basically, it should be almost illegal to be bored when in Egypt.

What also should be illegal are the high roaming rates mobile operators charge you for international roaming.

International roaming can be expensive, which is why you should get and use a local SIM card to enjoy local rates.

They almost always beat international roaming rates.

Fortunately, SIM cards are inexpensive in Egypt.

You can get an Egyptian SIM card for 25 EGP (0.80 USD) to 84 EGP (2.70 USD) in Vodafone, Orange, Etisalat & WE by Telecom Egypt stores. Tourist SIM cards from 150 EGP (4.85 USD) to 780 EGP (25.25 USD) are sold too. SIM cards are also available at select International airports, including Cairo Airport.

Those prices are not too bad – if we exclude the tourist SIM cards.

But those tourist SIM cards include generous allowances and can be useful to some travelers.

But there are a lot of options in this country, so…

In this guide, I will tell you everything you need to know about buying a SIM card in Egypt. Let's do this.

What is the Best SIM Card in Egypt?

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Egypt, I recommend going with Vodafone or Orange (formerly Mobinil). Vodafone is the best but the most expensive. Orange is the fastest and cheaper than Vodafone. Consider Etisalat if you prefer to create your own plan with Demagh Tanya, but know its reception is weak.

So, which other SIM cards are available in Egypt?

Egypt has four mobile operators offering prepaid services easily accessible to travelers:

  • Vodafone Egypt
  • Orange Egypt
  • Etisalat Egypt
  • WE by Telecom Egypt

This guide sticks to the mobile operators only to prevent information overload (at least, that is the aim – this guide is still in-depth!).

Anyone 18 or older living in or visiting Egypt can buy an Egyptian SIM card with no restrictions.

But you do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations, which include showing your passport at the point of sale and sometimes, your place of stay in Egypt will be asked for too .

Where Can You Buy an Egyptian SIM Card (+Costs)?

You can get an Egyptian SIM card in Vodafone, Orange, Etisalat & WE/Telecom Egypt stores. Select international airports, including Cairo International Airport, sell SIM cards too.

You can expect to pay for the following Egyptian SIM cards:

  • Vodafone Egypt/Misr: 25 EGP
  • Orange Egypt/Misr (formerly Mobinil): 84 EGP
  • Etisalat Egypt/Misr: 30 EGP
  • WE by Telecom Egypt: 81.23 EGP

The following Egyptian mobile operators also have SIM cards targeting tourists:

  • Vodafone Egypt/Misr: between 255 EGP and 780 EGP (seven options)
  • Orange Egypt/Misr (formerly Mobinil): 150 EGP (Cairo Airport only), 200 EGP (Holidays) & 500 EGP (Holidays Super)
  • Etisalat Egypt/Misr: between 185.13 EGP and 627.13 EGP (seven options)

If you plan to buy a SIM card at an airport, the prices can be higher than those listed above – be aware of this.

  • 10 EGP = 0.30 USD

(Travel) eSIMs for Egypt

(Travel) eSIMs have become extremely popular in recent years.

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

This forced mobile operators to adopt eSIM technology faster than they had planned (for the benefit of anyone wishing to use eSIMs instead of swapping SIM cards).

At the moment, no Egyptian mobile operator offers eSIMs to prepaid customers.

But if the Egyptian mobile operators did have eSIMs and you wanted to purchase an eSIM, you would need to comply with Egypt's SIM card registration regulations.

Suppose you do not wish to do so for whatever reason. In that case, you may consider getting a travel eSIM for Egypt.

My Egypt eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide (even in Egypt).

Buying an eSIM for Egypt Guide

You can even get eSIMs covering Egypt and other countries in the Middle East, allowing you to use one eSIM in multiple destinations with just one purchase.

Or you can even get a global eSIM, which can be used in at least 100 countries worldwide.

While the Egypt eSIM buying guide goes much more in-depth about your options, I do want to introduce some quickly here:

  • Airalo: Giza Mobile (Egypt only), Menalink (15 countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS)
  • Alosim: Egypt
  • Holafly: Egypt (unlimited data)
  • Nomad: Egypt, Middle East (seven countries) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant)

Here are some discount codes to sweeten the deal:

  • Airalo: NEWMAY15 for 15% off (if you have never bought an Airalo eSIM before). Otherwise, AIRALOMAY10 for 10% off (for existing users) – only the first 3000 users can redeem either discount code)
  • Alosim: PTW for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Holafly: PHONETRAVELWIZ for 5% off (as many times as you wish for as many eSIMs as you want)
  • Nomad: ADU123 for 3 USD off (on your first-ever Nomad order only)

For information about these eSIMs, such as how much the eSIMs cost and how much data you get, check out the Egypt eSIM buying guide.

Vodafone Egypt, just Vodafone but also known as Vodafone Misr or ڤودافون مَصر is the largest mobile operator in Egypt.

It is also the best and fastest mobile operator in the country.

Vodafone, as a company, is active in Africa (mostly as Vodacom), Asia, Europe, the Middle East & Oceania.

Vodafone uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3)

This is what you will learn about Vodafone:

Coverage – Vodafone Egypt/Misr

Vodafone has the best coverage throughout Egypt.

4G/LTE can be found in populated areas of Egypt

Below is Vodafone's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – Vodafone Egypt/Misr

You can get a Vodafone SIM card, called Kart El-Korout, for 25 EGP in Vodafone stores. However, you will often be pushed to purchase the Vodafone Tourist line for 255 EGP or 505 EGP. Airports, including Cairo International Airport, sell Vodafone (tourist) SIM cards too.

You may be able to convince the store employee to sell you a regular Vodafone SIM card (El-Korout).

Still, the chance of succeeding is often low – perhaps outside urban areas.

The Vodafone Tourist Lines, sold nationwide, include the following perks:

Several international airports, especially Cairo International Airport, sell Flex Lines, which are SIM cards using a unit system (Flex Units).

The following Flex Lines are available:

  • 1 off-net minute = 5 Flex

Cheaper Vodafone Flex plans are available. However, they are often (initially) not sold to tourists and short-term travelers.

  • Find out how much SIM cards cost in every country, including data-only SIM cards and tourist SIM cards, offered by each mobile operator + information about starter benefits (lookup tool)

Vodafone has no eSIMs.

You should consider getting a travel eSIM for Egypt because they can sometimes be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Vodafone.

Especially if you get a Middle East-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Egypt in my Egypt eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Giza Mobile (Egypt only), Menalink (15 countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Egypt – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Egypt (unlimited data eSIMs) – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Egypt, Middle East (seven countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

As I said, check out my Egypt eSIM buying guide for more information, as I have to continue with Vodafone for now.

Orange has no eSIMs.

You can consider getting a travel eSIM for Egypt, which can, in specific scenarios, be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Orange.

Especially if you get a Middle East eSIM (for when you visit at least two or more supported Middle Eastern countries) or a global eSIM (for frequent travelers visiting multiple continents).

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

But I will introduce them here quickly:

  • Airalo: Giza Mobile (Egypt only), Menalink (15 countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + up to 200 worldwide minutes & 200 worldwide SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Egypt – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Egypt (unlimited data) – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Egypt, Middle East (seven countries) & Global (109 or 139 countries, depending on the variant) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

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

Etisalat Egypt/Misr (اتصالات مصر)

Etisalat Logo New
© Etisalat

Etisalat Egypt, just Etisalat but also known as Etisalat Misr or اتصالات مصر, is the third-largest mobile operator in Egypt.

It entered the Egyptian telecom market in 2007 and was the first to introduce 3(.5)G in the country.

Etisalat, as a company, is active in Africa, Asia & the Middle East.

Etisalat uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3)

This is what you will learn about Etisalat:

* Coverage
* How to Get an Etisalat SIM Card & SIM Card Price
* Topping Up Options & Methods + Balance Check
* Plans & Packages
* APN/Internet Settings

Coverage – Etisalat Egypt/Misr

Etisalat has extensive coverage throughout Egypt (in populated areas).

You should not expect any coverage in deserts.

Additionally, Etisalat has the weakest reception of all the Egyptian mobile operators.

With weak reception, I mean no connection in the middle of a city center (even though Vodafone Egypt, Orange Egypt & WE by Telecom Egypt have no issues at the same location).

Below is Etisalat's coverage map produced by Speedtest:

SIM Card Price – Etisalat Egypt/Misr

You can get an Etisalat SIM card for 30 EGP in Etisalat stores. Airports, including Cairo International Airport, sell Vodafone (tourist) SIM cards too.

Short-term visitors and tourists can also get the Etisalat tourist SIM cards in regular Etisalat stores or airports.

The following tourist SIM cards are available:

PriceData 1Local Minutes/SMS (Units)Validity

Etisalat has no eSIMs.

You may want to get a travel eSIM for Egypt, which can be cheaper than getting a SIM card from Etisalat (in some cases).

Especially when getting an eSIM covering popular Middle Eastern destinations if you do not stay in just Egypt or a global eSIM valid for up to a year if you want one eSIM to work practically worldwide.

My Egypt eSIM buying guide analyzes various eSIM options of eSIM providers I have tested extensively worldwide.

Here is a quick introduction to them:

  • Airalo: Giza Mobile (Egypt only), Menalink (15 countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + call and text feature) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Egypt – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Egypt (these eSIMs have unlimited data) – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Egypt, Middle East (seven countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)

For more information, such as the prices and data allowances, check out my Egypt eSIM buying guide.

WE by Telecom Egypt (المصرية للاتصالات)

WE Telecom Egypt Logo

WE by Telecom Egypt (المصرية للاتصالات) is the smallest mobile operator in Egypt.

Telecom Egypt (TE) was founded back in 1881, while WE, the mobile division, started in September 2017 when the company managed to get a 4G/LTE license in August 2016.

Telecom Egypt signed national roaming deals with Orange Egypt/Misr and Etisalat Egypt Misr.

It also has an infrastructure deal with Vodafone Egypt/Misr.

Because Telecom Egypt has a deal with all the other mobile operators in the country, WE is often called the mobile operator with the best coverage.

Surprisingly, Telecom Egypt has a 44% stake in Vodafone Egypt/Misr.

WE uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz
  • 3G: 900 MHz & 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3)

This is what you will learn about WE:

WE has extensive coverage throughout Egypt (in populated areas).

WE has no eSIMs.

You should consider getting a travel eSIM for Egypt because they can sometimes be cheaper than getting a SIM card from WE.

Especially if you get a Middle East-wide eSIM or a global eSIM.

I discuss various eSIM options of eSIM providers for Egypt in my Egypt eSIM buying guide, which are:

  • Airalo: Giza Mobile (Egypt only), Menalink (15 countries in the Middle East and Northern Africa) & Discover+ (130 countries worldwide + minutes and SMS) – use code NEWMAY15 (15% off – first-time users only) or AIRALOMAY10 (10% off)
  • Alosim: Egypt – use code PTW (5% off – no limits)
  • Holafly: Egypt (unlimited data eSIMs) – use code PHONETRAVELWIZ (5% off – no limits)
  • Nomad: Egypt, Middle East (seven countries) & Global (up to 139 countries) – use code ADU123 (3 USD off – first-time users only)
