How to Activate BSNL’s Prepaid International Roaming?

Customers may activate BSNL’s Prepaid International Roaming service on their current number in just two easy steps.
Step 1: Replace SIM Card Customers may get BSNL Prepaid International Roaming enabled SIM cards from the closest Customer service centers to replace their current SIM cards. Customers who want a Dual IMSI SIM card with international roaming capability must provide a copy of their ID or Aadhar card.
Recharge your international roaming STV in step two.
After getting a new SIM card that allows international roaming, the functionality may be enabled via one of the two BSNL International Roaming STVs (STV 58 or STV 168). IR STV 168 offers 90 days of validity, but IR STV 58 only provides 30. After the expiration of one of these two IR STVs, a consumer can recharge.

To-Do List for BSNL Prepaid International Roaming

  • Restart your phone, once you land abroad.
  • Manually search and select the network operator.
  • Whenever not in use, switch off “Mobile Data.”
  • IR STV 58 has 30 days validity whereas IR STV 168 has 90 days validity.
  • Please remember to redo any of these two STVs for extension of International Roaming facility.
  • Check http://ir.bsnl.co.in/ for tariff related information. (http://ir.bsnl.co.in/ -> Prepaid -> Tariffs and coverage -> Choose the visiting country -> Select operator -> Select currency -> click ok )
  • With the exception of incoming SMS, all international services are payable.

Note: –

  • Pick a phone that supports quadband if you’re traveling to the USA.
