I am a tourist in Thailand and am a little confused about the packaging of SIM cards I see in stores like 7/11.

They seem to have days marked on them, eg: 5g, 15 days, 150thb.

Does this mean that I have 15 days to use the SIM card before it expires?

It means the SIM card will expire 15 days after it is activated.

  • Hmmm. Isnt it normally 30 days? – Jon Grah Nov 17 '19 at 3:36
  • @JonGrah depends on the SIM card – Franck Dernoncourt Nov 17 '19 at 3:37
  • Do they let you use it without registering your id card/passport? Most shops now require it. But not sure if you can just pop it in and get any use before mandatory registration. – Jon Grah Nov 17 '19 at 3:39

    I went in and got a SIM card today. Just to clarify the ones in the photo are for top-ups, though the SIM cards themselves are similar with an expiry. You will need a passport to get them. – MeltingDog Nov 17 '19 at 13:41

    @FranckDernoncourt I didn't. I took one to a 7/11 counter and they told me. They had the real SIMs behind the counter. – MeltingDog Nov 18 '19 at 1:26
