Make your trip to Malaysia hassle-free with a convenient eSIM. Stay connected on your travels with high-speed coverage in Malaysia and choose a plan that works in other countries as well. Buy and install the eSIM anywhere and start using it straight away, without a physical SIM. Pick your favorite data package that suits your needs, and decide if you want coverage in 8 other countries, including Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Cambodia, Hong Kong, and South Korea. Scan the eSIM QR code to start surfing and access your apps. Once you activate it, your coverage will begin for the selected duration of time. Top up and purchase an additional SIM plan if you need it. Remember to choose the carrier in Malaysia, which varies depending on the plan. It is usually Maxis, Celecom, or Digi. Most devices released after 2019 are compatible with eSIM (e.g. iPhone XR, XS of models beyond, Google Pixel 4 and beyond). If you are unsure, please check the compatibility guideline photo to confirm eligibility.
