Travel Roaming Made Easy
The United Global eSIM transforms the way we travel. Experience all the benefits of our flagship Global SIM service without any of the hassle that normally comes with using a physical SIM card.
Keep your regular SIM in your phone
Since there is no physical SIM card, you don't need to remove your existing local SIM and replace it with the roaming SIM when you travel. Gone are the days when we would struggle to remove that stubborn phone lid, or scramble to find a pin that would open the iPhone SIM slot!
Instant delivery of service
There is no manual distribution involved, meaning you can get access to affordable travel roaming wherever and whenever! Even if you have already departed for your trip, we can deliver the service to you in a matter of seconds.
You can use both your regular SIM and the Global eSIM at the same time. In fact, on a compatible device, you can have multiple Global eSIM plans installed. You can also enable and disable them whenever you wish.
Free 12-month access
No expiry on prepaid credit for 365 days - at no extra costs. Reuse your travel SIM to maximize its benefits!

Global eSIM Zones & Coverage
WHAT ARE THE GLOBAL eSIM ZONES?
In order to provide you with the best rates and network service in each country, we have categorised the Global eSIM into 3 zones: Blue, Red, and Purple.
- The Blue Global eSIM will work in Blue zone countries.
- The Red Global eSIM will work in Red zone countries.

HOW DO I KNOW WHICH GLOBAL eSIM IS RIGHT FOR ME?
The section below lists the supported countries in the Blue, Red, and Purple Global eSIM zones. Depending on where you are travelling to, you might need 1 or more Global eSIMs.
WHAT IF I AM TRAVELLING TO DIFFERENT ZONES?
If you are travelling to multiple zones, you will require a Global eSIM for each of the zone. However, you don’t have to worry! Unlike the regular SIM, which is a tangible product, the Global eSIM is completely digitised. This means you can have more than one Global eSIM added to your device.
While the traditional phones enable users to insert 1 physical SIM card (or 2 in the case of Dual-SIM phones), an eSIM compatible device can have 3,4, or even 5 eSIM plans installed! Although you can only have one active eSIM at a time, you can enable or disable the eSIMs with a simple tap anytime you wish.
