The most complete guide to organize your trip to Russia after international sanctions

STEP 8. SIM card and the Internet in Russia

To have Internet access during your trip to Russia, I recommend that you buy a Russian SIM card. For this you have two options:

1. Buy the SIM card before leaving on your trip from companies like Simcorner. The advantage of this is that you will arrive in Russia with the SIM card already (and not have to find a company) and without the disadvantage of it costing you a little more.

2. Buy the SIM card upon your arrival in Russia, for which you need to go to a mobile phone store in Russia with your passport.

In this section of the blog I explain how to buy a Russian SIM card, either before going on a trip or once you arrive in Russia.
