Where To Order Your SIM Card In Korea

Updated on Aug 29, 2023 · By Tom

Settling in Korea can be quite challenging, paperwork is quite heavy so you will need to rely on a friend to help you goin through it. This is exactly what ENKOR is here for!

In Korea if you want to order food, play League Of Legends, or even certify that you are of age to watch your favorite Youtube video (many are considered inappropriate for minors) you will need a local phone number. To get this number through a regular monthly plan you will need to show a Korean ID and a Korean bank account, which will leave you in the 20th century for more than a month!

Whether you are looking for a prepaid card or for a foreigner-friendly monthly plan keep on reading ;)

Pick It Up At Incheon Airport!


[IMPORTANT] These SIM Cards cannot grant you access to Korean applications that need an ID verification


There are two main rental centers you can find inside Incheon Airport:

Terminal 1 Gate 9~10

Terminal 2 Gate 4~5


There you will be able to get prepaid card in different forms. They all will give access to unlimited data but you can also add local calls and texts. The SIM Card duration is usually ranging from 5 to 30 days.

KT, SK and LG U+ are the main telecom companies in Korea, they also collaborate on a project called Korea SIM specialised in prepaid SIM cards for inbound travelers. Note that for a month the prices usually range from 60 000 KRW to 75 000 KRW. You can compare them and order your card online for a little discount and the convenience to pick it up directly at the airport:

| KT | SK | LG U+ | Korea SIM |


You can also opt for a "WiFi Egg", it looks like a little external battery that will grant you WiFi when you turn it on. It could be a better option for small groups that stay together most of the time.


Convenience Stores Give Convenient Cards!


[IMPORTANT] These SIM Cards cannot grant you access to Korean applications that need an ID verification


You can find SIM Cards available in most convenience stores so you can get one whenever you feel the sudden urge to have data.


However this option is a bit more complicated as you will need to explain exactly what you need to the clerk which will most likely not talk in English. Moreover you will need to go over some paperwork in Korean so we highly recommend you to get help from a local friend if you prefer to get one this way.
