Etisalat on Monday announced the launch of a new roaming pack for customers travelling to Saudi Arabia for the Hajj and Umrah pilgrimages.

The offer provides enhanced data and voice allowances and a 14-day validity that allows them to stay connected with family and friends back home.

From July 21 to August 19, customers can enjoy 10GB data and 1,000 minutes to make and receive voice calls valid for 14 days for AED150, the telco said in a statement.

It added that the pack gives customers peace of mind and more flexibility to use the services for the duration of their pilgrimage.

They do not need to get a local SIM and get to avoid the hassle of queuing and registration, Etisalat said.

The Hajj and Umrah package offer is charged upon purchase but activated only upon the first usage.

The pack can be used across all mobile operators in Saudi Arabia, without the need to manually select any roaming partner. Data allowances can be used at full speed, with no speed throttling; while minutes can be used to receive calls and make calls to UAE numbers, Saudi Arabia numbers and other preferred countries.
