Visiting Qatar in 2024, whether for tourism, business, or any other purpose, means ensuring you have a reliable mobile internet connection.

To dodge the hassle of physical SIM cards, including long queues at the airport and the constraints of long-term contracts or data caps, consider getting a prepaid eSIM. These virtual SIM cards are a game-changer for travelers, offering convenience and flexibility.

Here's a guide to the top prepaid eSIM options for Qatar in 2024, ensuring you stay connected smoothly during your visit. For a broader range of options tailored to your specific needs, our comparison tool lists 98 eSIM plans from various providers catering to Qatar.

Mobile operators in Qatar: speeds, network types and eSIMs capabilities

In Qatar, there are only two mobile careers: Ooredoo and Vodafone. Qatar is a small country. Overall, Ooredoo is better than Vodafone and we recommend you stick to eSIM MVNOs (Mobile Virtual Network Operators) that have roaming agreements with Ooredoo.

Ooredoo network overview (best one) :

  • Coverage & network types: has a 98% availability score with 3G at least. Ooredoo offers the best 4G coverage in Qatar. 5G is available in main cities.

  • Speeds: Ooredoo has the fastest overall experience in Qatar. Ooredoo users have an average download speeds of 51 Mbps and upload speeds of 14 Mbps.

  • Prepaid eSIM plans: See below.

Vodafone network overview (second) :

  • Coverage & network types: Vodafone has a 97% availability score with 3G at least. Offers the second best 4G coverage in Qatar. 5G is available in main cities but not as advanced as Ooredoo.

  • Speeds: Vodafone offers lower speeds than Ooredoo in Qatar. Users saw average overall download speeds of 32Mbps and upload speeds of 9.7 Mbps.

  • Prepaid eSIM plans: Vodafone don't offer their own eSIM plans directly: Vodafone network is only offered through eSIM MVNOs (see below).

Yesim : another great (but more expensive option) for travelers staying 15-20 days

Yesim's "Qatar 20GB" eSIM plan offers a substantial data package for travelers to Qatar, with 20GB available for 30 days. It offers mobile data on Vodafone's network.

We think that plan is ideal for travelers staying up to 15-20 days and not in the need of too much mobile data, en if it can last for up to 30 days.

The plan is data only and its validity period starts when the eSIM connects to any supported network/s. Once you are out of data, this plan can be topped-up.

If you do not need 20GB of data, Yesim offers variants of this eSIM plan for Qatar with more or less mobile data:
