Yes, eSIM technology has gradually gained traction in Kenya, offering an alternative to traditional physical SIM cards. Major mobile network operators in Kenya, such as Safaricom, Airtel, and Telkom, have started embracing eSIM capabilities, providing customers with the option to use eSIM-enabled devices.
A virtual SIM card, or Kenya eSIM, is a new way to connect to the Internet without sacrificing the look and feel of your phone. It is fully integrated into the device and lets you do everything you would normally be able to do, like check your online maps, use all of your favorite apps, and connect to the web—all of which were previously available through the provider's cellular data plan. Best of all, there is no extra cost because the mobile carrier has a network usage contract with another mobile carrier.
You can purchase and install eSim according to the provider's instructions. Please note that eSims are not activated until you arrive in Kenya, as they are only valid for a certain number of days. After you have made your purchase, activating your eSim is rather easy. You only need to connect to WiFi, enter the activation code, and then follow the on-screen instructions.
