Which India SIM Card Work in Russia ? (in Hindi)

Hello friends, greetings! Today you’ve come to this article, which means you’re interested in knowing which company’s SIM card works in Russia. Well, you’ve come to the right place.

Firstly, let me tell you that some SIM cards work without any specific conditions. We’ll discuss this further; let’s begin by talking about SIM cards that work without any conditions.

Airtel Prepaid:  If you’re an Airtel user, you can easily enjoy the benefits of Airtel’s international roaming in Russia without any conditions. However, you need to stay active with a basic plan.

Afterward, you’ll receive an OTP and SMS, and your SIM card will remain active. Additionally, you’ll need to send an SMS from your phone (IRSTART to 121), whether you’re in India or abroad. Please note that there might be a charge, but if you’re currently in India, no charge will apply. Your SIM will work well, and this process applies to other countries too.

Vodafone (Vi) Prepaid: If you’re a Vodafone user, you can also easily benefit from Vi’s international roaming in Russia without any specific conditions. Similar to Airtel, you need to remain active with a basic plan.

After receiving an OTP and SMS, your SIM card will stay active. Send an SMS from your phone (ACT IR to 199), whether you’re in India or abroad. There might be a charge, but if you’re currently in India, no charge will be incurred. Your SIM will work smoothly, and this process applies to other countries as well.

BSNL Prepaid: For BSNL users, there’s a condition. Before traveling abroad, you need to visit a nearby BSNL office to convert your SIM card to IMSI SIM Card (International Roaming). After this, you can use it easily without sending any SMS. Remember to keep extending your validity for this to work continuously.

Jio Prepaid: Jio users need to recharge with INR 1000 first before using international roaming. This recharge can be done in India or abroad. After that, your SIM card will work. All types of phones, including Android, iOS, and keypad phones, will work in Russia with both Indian and Russian SIM cards.

Now, let’s discuss which Russian network each Indian telecom company’s SIM card connects to in Russia:

  1. Airtel connects to Beeline (Билайн).
  2. Vodafone (Vi) connects to MTS (МТС).
  3. BSNL connects to Beeline (Билайн).
  4. Jio connects to Tele 2 (Теле2).

Regarding which phone models work in Russia:

All types of phones, including Android, iOS, and keypad phones, will work well. Both Indian and Russian SIM cards will connect to the network.

Which SIM card should you choose in Russia?

Based on my experience, I can suggest considering the Tele 2 SIM card, which is cost-effective and easy to use. For around 300 Rubles, you get 12 GB of data and 200 minutes, valid for one month. To buy this SIM card, you’ll need your passport (no need for photo copies) – the original passport will suffice.

Note: Before returning to India, make sure to discuss international roaming with your service provider. There’s no need to switch to postpaid for international roaming.

If you’re outside India and facing SIM card issues despite following all procedures, you can contact the company through Twitter for assistance. You’ll receive help there. Follow our Twitter handle for updates.
