Getting started with eSIM

eSIM allows you to activate a mobile data plan in a specific country from a network provider without having to use a physical SIM card. eSIM is provided by Revolut Ltd.

Purchase data plans

  1. Go to 'Lifestyle' on the bottom menu of the Revolut app's 'Home' screen
  2. Tap 'eSIM' and access data plan selection
  3. Select a coverage — local if you want one country, or regional or global for multiple countries
  4. Select the amount of data you need
  5. Continue to checkout and purchase your data plan (prices vary per plan and plan duration)
  6. The data plan’s validity period starts from the date of purchase, or when your eSIM is ready to be installed, if it’s your first purchase

Can I buy multiple data plans?

You can have up to 15 device-specific eSIM data plans, but only one can be used at a time. Plans appear on the eSIM page, with the most local one taking priority, and new plans for the same area activate after the current plan expires. When a plan runs out of data, it moves to 'expired plans', and the app switches to the next one automatically.

Available countries

To see available countries regionally and globally:

  1. Go to 'Lifestyle' on the bottom menu of the Revolut app's 'Home' screen
  2. Select 'eSIM'
  3. Tap 'Get data plan'
  4. Select 'Global' section
  5. Tap 'Global' again to see the full list of available countries

When does the data plan activate?

You can buy a data plan anytime before or during your trip. Your plan activates as soon as you complete your purchase and install your eSIM.

Can I access network voice calls and SMS on eSIMs?

Your Revolut eSIM includes global data only. Voice calls and SMS messages aren’t supported, although you can use any messaging or call platform that uses data with your eSIM — e.g. WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger, etc.
