Israel: MoC instructs mobile companies to activate a virtual SIM service (eSIM) in the coming months
February 8, 2024

The introduction of eSIM technology into the Israeli communications market, as highlighted by the Minister of Communication, aims to enhance mobility for evacuees and reserve soldiers, eliminating the need for physical SIM cards and facilitating cost-effective packages for families traveling abroad. The Director General of the Ministry of Communications emphasizes the need to provide maximum flexibility to mobile device users as well as the importance of innovation in ensuring reliable communication.

The Director General issued a directive to cellular companies requesting information on their preparedness to implement the eSIM service in Israel, as a mechanism to allow seamless switching between providers, addressing reception issues experienced during emergencies or military operations. 

This initiative aligns with the government’s aim to improve public services and marks a significant step towards enhancing communication accessibility nationwide. The Ministry plans to pursue measures to mandate companies to offer this service in the near future, urging companies to address any potential barriers to implementation promptly.
