Not all Samsung Galaxy devices are eSIM-compatible, so it's a good idea to check that your device supports eSIMs before getting started. Please follow the steps in this article to check if your Samsung Galaxy device supports eSIMs and is carrier-unlocked.

Once you have confirmed that your Samsung Galaxy device supports eSIMs and is connected to a stable internet connection, you can follow these steps to set up an eSIM.


  1. OPEN the Airalo app.
  2. TAP My eSIMs.

  4. TAP View Instructions.
  5. TAP Direct.
  6. TAP Install eSIM.
  7. TAP Allow.
  8. WAIT a few minutes for your eSIM to activate.
