Can I use eSIM in Laos?

Yes, you can use eSim in Laos. eSIM cards are available in Laos, and eSIMs are supported by many of the current smartphone models from Apple, Samsung, Google, and other manufacturers. Verifying whether your smartphone is eSIM compatible before coming to Laos is a good idea.

The eSIM is a modern version of the standard SIM card that we all use on a daily basis. The SIM chip is already embedded into the new cell phones, which makes it unique. It is sometimes called an "embedded" SIM, hence the "e" in eSIM. It is possible to virtually activate the necessary data tariffs by embedding the chip within the phone.

There are two methods to achieve this. The first is to regulate the data rates using an app that acts as a SIM card manager. Alternatively, you can activate the data device by scanning a QR code.

The eSIM has several advantages over a traditional SIM card that you may have yet to consider previously. These are some examples:

  • Greener: Help the environment by purchasing an eSIM. Eliminate the use of plastic cards, packing paper, and CO2 emissions during transportation.

  • Save time: Because the delivery is done by email, you don't have to wait for it or stand in line at the store. You can get your eSIM with only two clicks.

  • Availability: If you purchase your eSIM from the online shop, you can do it from anywhere in the globe at any time, even if you are already in Laos.
