Bahrain has three main phone services providers: Batelco, Zain and STC. All three have similar packages.
We cannot recommend any specific company or package, as the best option ultimately depends on which plan meets your needs and budget.
During On-Campus Orientation, all new students will be offered a free SIM upon registration. Please ensure you have your original passport with you to avail of this service.
For all new lines, your passport is required for obtaining a sim card initially. However, to have a permanent cell service over an extended period (12 months or beyond), your smart card will be required and your fingerprints must be recorded at the services outlet.
