Once you make your purchase, Holafly will email you a receipt and instructions on how to install and activate your eSIM.

Please note that your eSIM plan will immediately start once you activate it and turn on data roaming. So to avoid starting your plan too early, Holafly recommends installing the eSIM just hours before your trip and then activating it once you arrive at your destination.

eSIM set-up instructions differ for iPhone and Android devices. So below, we will summarize the basics to give you an overview of the process. For detailed instructions, please refer to the Holafly links listed under “Helpful guides and links.”

First, installation:

  • You will receive an email from Holafly with a QR code and an Activation code (one for iPhone and one for Android)
  • Before installing, make sure you have a stable internet connection
  • Go to Settings, and find the add eSIM option
  • Here, you can either scan the provided QR code or enter the code manually
    • If you want to scan the QR code, make sure have another device to display the code, or print it out
    • If you do not have access to another device or a printer, you can add the eSIM manually by copying and pasting the Activation code into your phone
  • Once the eSIM is installed, rename it “Holafly Japan” for easy identification

Next, activation:

  • Once you arrive at your destination, go to Settings
