Vietnam: 3 Best Prepaid SIM Cards Buying Guide (2023)

Vietnam – known for its taste for robust coffee (robusta), its love for motorbikes & fascinating history.

The country has recently become popular with Digital Nomads who enjoy the weather, relatively low cost of living & fantastic foods.

I feel like I have to live in Vietnam for a while too, instead of just traveling through it for a month or too 🤔.

Anyway, being part of Southeast Asia, Vietnam is one of the cheaper travel destinations out there.

And also within the region.

Unfortunately, nearby Laos and Myanmar do not get as much love as Vietnam does.

But that may be because there are just too many fun things to do in Vietnam.

While there are many things you can do in the country, such as soaking up all the sun at the beach to exploring temples, there is certainly one thing you will do…

Sharing your experience online 🤳🏿.

What you should not do, in many cases, is roam internationally in Vietnam.

International roaming can be expensive, which is why I advocate for local prepaid SIM cards or eSIMs.

Those are often inexpensive and allow you to enjoy local rates.

And oh boy, the rates are low in Vietnam – even though things may feel expensive when you walk around with 100 000 VND bank notes.

So, how much do SIM cards cost in Vietnam?

You can get a Vietnamese SIM card for 50 000 VND/60 000 VND (2.10 USD/2.50 USD) from Viettel Mobile, VinaPhone & MobiFone in their stores. SIM cards are also sold at various airports, including Ho Chi Minh City-Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN).

Those prices are not too bad, right?

Just wait until how much data-featured plans cost.

You will not find plans priced this well in the European Union that easily – that is for sure!

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

Can You Buy a SIM Card in Vietnam?

Anyone living in or visiting Vietnam can buy a Vietnamese SIM card from the mobile network operators (Viettel Mobile, VinaPhone & MobiFone) with some restrictions.

The main restriction is that you can only have three active SIM cards in your name in Vietnam.

Besides that restriction, you are free to use Vietnamese SIM cards.

You do have to comply with the SIM card registration regulations.

Moreover, you need a phone that supports the frequencies used in the country (preferably all of them to have the most optimal experience while in Vietnam).

Furthermore, you need to have a SIM-lock-free device.

Where Can You Buy a SIM Card in Vietnam?

You can get a Vietnamese SIM card in Viettel Mobile, VinaPhone & MobiFone stores. They are also sold at various airports, including Ho Chi Minh City-Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN).

You can buy a Vietnamese SIM card in the following airports:

  • Da Nang – Da Nang International Airport (DAD
  • Hanoi – Noi Bai International Airport (HAN)
  • Ho Chi Minh City – Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN)
  • Nha Trang – Cam Ranh International Airport (CXR)
  • Phu Quoc – Phu Quoc International Airport (PQC – may not be the case anymore)

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

  • Viettel Mobile: 50 000 VND – 60 000 VND
  • VinaPhone: 50 000 VND – 60 000 VND
  • MobiFone Vietnam: 50 000 VND – 60 000 VND

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

  • VinaPhone: 1790 000 VND & 249 999 VND
  • MobiFone Vietnam: 109 000 VND

For up-to-date VND:your currency (let's say USD) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

Can You Use Your Phone in Vietnam?

Vietnam uses GSM technology for mobile communications. CDMA phones will not work in Vietnam. If your phone has a SIM card slot, then it supports GSMA (99% of the phones do support GSM nowadays).

Traditional European frequencies are used in Vietnam, which are mostly used in ITU Regions 1 and 3 (Africa, Asia (including the Middle East), Europe & Oceania).

The Americas (North-, Central– & South America + the Caribbean – ITU Region 2) use American frequencies, which differ from the European ones.

ITU Regions Map

If you bought your phone in Africa, Asia, Europe, or Oceania (ITU regions 1 and 3), you should not experience any issues with using your phone in Vietnam.

If you purchased your phone in the Americas (ITU Region 2) and have a low/medium-end device (without Tri-Band or Quad-Band) support, then there is a possibility you cannot use your phone when in Vietnam or can only use slower networks (3G or 2G).

If you have a medium/high-end device with Tri-Band or Quad-Band support, you can use your phone in Vietnam (to some extent) – also on 4G/LTE and 5G NR.

Mobile Operators, Networks & Frequencies in Vietnam

Vietnam has four mobile operators offering prepaid services:

  • Viettel Mobile
  • VinaPhone
  • MobiFone Vietnam
  • Vietnamobile

The following frequencies are used in Vietnam:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: launching soon (probably with 3500 MHz on n78)

You can learn more about frequencies in the video below.

To check whether your phone will work in Vietnam, check out this page by Will My Phone Work (may be outdated or inaccurate at times).

Again, make sure your phone is unlocked. Otherwise, you will not be able to use any SIM card except the one from your home operator (meaning you have to roam internationally or buy another unlocked phone that does support the frequencies listed above).

If you want to learn how international roaming works, this guide explains it in-depth. If you wonder why it is often so expensive to roam, this article explains the hidden reason they do not want you to know.

A Note about Vietnamobile

Vietnamobile Vietnam Logo
© Vietnamobile

Vietnamobile is the fourth and smallest mobile operator in Vietnam.

In the first version of this guide (2019), I omitted Vietnamobile because it was whack.

It had awful coverage and excruciating slow speeds.

In the current version of this guide (2022), I considered adding Vietnamobile because it actually improved over the past three years.

But in the end, I decided not to do so.

The issue, however, is that its coverage mostly improved in the Southern part of Vietnam (such as in Ho Chi Mihn).

Central and Northern Vietnam still have to deal with Vietnamobile's 3G network… which is straight-up trash.

Well… its 4G/LTE network is basically trash too.

In fact, the average download speed with Vietnamobile is around 5 Mbps.

And you have to be close to the tower in order to get such speed.

While Vietnamobile is cheap, like really cheap, and its tourist SIM cards are appealing, the 1 USD or 2 USD savings is not worth your money.

You really should avoid Vietnamobile, even though I wish the best for it.

But it is so bad that it would be an insult to recommend it in this guide 🥲.

VoLTE & VoWiFi in Vietnam

Both VoLTE (Voice over LTE (4G) – also known as HD Voice) and VoWiFi (Voice over WiFi – also known as WiFi calling) are available in Vietnam. However, not all mobile operators offer both services.

This means that your phone does not have to downgrade to 2G or 3G when making a call in Vietnam (unlike mobile operators that do not support VoLTE).

The following mobile operators offer VoLTE and VoWiFi in Vietnam:

  • Viettel Mobile
  • VinaPhone

The following mobile operators offer VoWiFi only in Vietnam:

  • MobiFone Vietnam

VoWiFi is, as the name implies, calling on a WiFi connection as opposed to on a cellular network.

5G NR in Vietnam

Commercial 5G NR will be launching in Vietnam in 2022. While Viettel Mobile and Vinaphone held (free) trials, they were trials. Viettel Mobile will be the first one to launch its 5G NR network. However, it is unknown whether prepaid customers can use it upon launch.

Best SIM Card in Vietnam

If you want to buy the best SIM card in Vietnam, I recommend going with Viettel Mobile or Vinaphone. Viettel Mobile and Vinaphone have fast speeds and extensive coverage. MobiFone is not bad and allows you to customize your plans.

Best eSIM in Vietnam

Viettel Mobile, VinaPhone & MobiFone offer eSIMs to prepaid customers.

Note that the Vietnamese mobile operators require your identification (passport) for eSIMs and physical SIM cards (will be discussed later).

Therefore, if you wish to get an eSIM for Vietnam without personal detail capturing, you can get the Vietnam (Cu Chi) eSIM from Airalo with 1 GB of data for 7 days.

Now, you may think this is a sad selection or that 1 GB of data is insufficient.

Both points are true… I agree – but you can make unlimited top-ups with the Cu Chi eSIM through the Airalo website or apps.

So if you need 5 GB of data, you can purchase the Cu Chi 1 GB eSIM and get four 1 GB top-ups.

Yes, it is a bit inconvenient for now; Airalo may offer 3 GB, 5 GB & 10 GB plans with a 30-day validity for Vietnam soon, as it did for many other countries it supports.

For an in-depth analysis of the Airalo Cu Chi eSIMs (covering pros and cons as well), check out my Vietnam eSIMs Compared guide.

You can also get Vietnam eSIMs from Nomad.

Airalo recently heavily improved its Asia eSIM, following the popular Eurolink eSIM for 39 European countries, with six variants: 1 GB/7 days, 3 GB/30 daysvery popular with PTW readers, 5 GB/30 daysmost popular with PTW readers, 10 GB/30 daysvery popular with PTW readers, 50 GB/90 days & 100 GB/180 days to be used in Vietnam and 13 other Asian countries:

Just like in Europe, many readers tend to visit multiple Asian countries, so they would rather have a travel eSIM covering multiple countries than just one (like Vietnam).

The Asialink eSIM can be used in 13 14 countries in East Asia and Southeast Asia:

  • Cambodia
  • China
  • Hong Kong
  • Indonesia
  • Japan
  • Laos
  • Macau
  • Malaysia
  • Philippines
  • Singapore (new)
  • South Korea
  • Taiwan
  • Thailand
  • Vietnam

With the Asialink eSIM, you can save a lot of money by skipping the initial SIM card costs per country you visit.

Currency in Vietnam

100 000 Vietnamese Dong Bank Note
© State Bank of Vietnam/Ngân hàng Nhà nước Việt Nam

Vietnam uses the Vietnamese Đồng with the symbol VND (which will be used throughout this guide).

However, prices are often listed as đ. For example, 25 VND = 25đ.

For reference, below are some exchange rates between PHP and USD (US Dollars):

  • 1000 VND = 0.04 USD
  • 10 000 VND = 0.40 USD
  • 100 000 VND = 4.30 USD
  • 1 000 000 VND = 42.80 USD
  • 10 000 000 VND = 428.40 USD

For up-to-date VND:your currency (let's say MYR – Malaysian Ringgit) exchange rates, use the Wise Currency Converter tool.

If your credit/debit card charges you foreign exchange fees, get yourself a Wise Borderless Account and Debit Card.

Their fees are MUCH lower than banks and credit card companies charge you (and Wise is transparent about their fees, unlike banks).

I have saved literal THOUSANDS of Australian Dollars and Euros, my main currencies, when using Wise abroad when traveling compared to my debit and credit cards.

Viettel Mobile, often referred to as just Viettel, is the largest mobile operator in Vietnam.

It is one of the best mobile operators in the country.

Viettel is run by the Vietnamese Ministry of Defence.

While that may sound scary at first, the Ministry and Viettel have done well over the past 30+ years.

The Viettel group is also active in Burundi (as Lumitel – largest), Cambodia (as Metfone – largest), Cameroon (Nexttel – first to launch 3G), East Timor/Timor Leste (as Telemor – largest), Haiti (as Natcom – smallest), Laos (as Unitel – largest), Mozambique (as Movitel – largest), Myanmar (as Mytel – smallest), Peru (as Bitel – smallest) & Tanzania (as Halotel – smallest).

Viettel Mobile uses the following frequencies:

  • 2G: 900 MHz & 1800 MHz
  • 3G: 2100 MHz
  • 4G/LTE: 1800 MHz (Band 3) & 2600 MHz (Band 7)
  • 5G NR: N/A – commercial launch launching soon (probably 3500 MHz on n78)
  • VoLTE: Yes
  • VoWiFi: Yes

The data-only SIM card (Dcom) is also sold for 50 000 VND. SIM cards are also sold at various airports, including Hanoi-Noi Bai International Airport (HAN) and Ho Chi Minh City-Tan Son Nhat International Airport (SGN).
