Tourist Cellphone Packages are available in Sri Lanka for those who are coming here for holidays. Tourists coming from USA, Germany, UK, Australia, France, Spain and other countries where cellphone tariff are high can benefit from the Sri Lanka’s lowest call and data plan during their stay over here.
Your existing phones will work here in the international roaming mode. We recommend to these tourists coming from developed countries to use the local tourist SIM package to benefit from the cheap local tariff plans. For this they have to purchase on of the available Tourist SIM package either from Dialog, Mobitel, Airtel, Etisalat or from Hutch mobile .
Remove your expensive roaming plan SIM from your cellphone and insert the new SIM card. Or bring one GSM SIM using cellphone, charger and data cable to get the lowest price benefits in Sri Lanka.
