Roaming Services

Roaming Service

Planning a business trip or vacation abroad?

Don’t worry about missing  all those important calls. With our roaming service you can receive and make calls, send SMS and use internet service using your current local SIM on networks across 159 countries. Please check if a preffered network is availabe at your destination from the list below and enjoy a discounted roaming rate.

  • Visit the nearest Ethio telecom shop to register for the service before your travel.
  • You would be expected to bring your passport/national ID, an official requesting letter and ETB 10,000 deposit.
  • If you are a business customer (except key account), you also need to submit a signed and stamped roaming agreement form.

  • Upon arrival a list of available networks will automatically be displayed on your phone: from those do make sure to select the preferred/ discounted network before you start using. We also strongly advise customers to use data roaming only on preferred operators’ network to avoid unexpected service bill.

  • The tariff is based on the destination operator tariff. Please check for the availability of preferred networks with discounted rate agreements below.

  • To call back home replace the first ‘0’ with ‘+251’ and put in the rest as you would when making a call here. i.e. ‘0911******’ would be ‘+251 911******’ and ‘0116******’ would be ‘+251 116******’ etc.
