Buying a SIM card in Sri Lanka

Local SIM Cards: Currently, there are four major mobile phone providers in Sri Lanka: Mobitel, Hutch, Dialog and Airtel.

Sim cards can be easily purchased at the airport upon arrival or at any of the mobile operator’s retail outlets located throughout Sri Lanka. Some of these outlets may require a passport or other form of identification to be provided.

The average price for a sim card in Sri Lanka is around LKR 500-1000 ($2.50-$5), and the cost of a data plan will depend on the operator and the package chosen. Most operators offer data plans starting from LKR 200 ($1) per day, with unlimited data plans available for around LKR 2,000 ($10) per month.

When purchasing a sim card, it is recommended to avoid buying an expensive one at the airport or in the last minute, as prices tend to be higher and you may be limited in your options.  Travel to sri lanka?
