Sure you can. Staring November 2016 giffgaff is delivering SIMs internationally.


Can I get a SIM if I'm overseas?

You certainly can and the steps are simple:  just click on

  1. order your free SIM on the home page
  2. select the goodybag of your choice
  3. fill in the order form with the international delivery details.



The delivery time will vary depending on the country of shipping, so anywhere between 3 to 5 working days within Europe and from 5 working days for the rest of the world.


The moment you are back in the UK, you will be able to activate the SIM simply by visiting If you do want to activate before you are in the UK, please be aware that activating from abroad may result in roaming charges.


 Because we aim to make life easier, all international joiners will be offered the option of activating their giffgaff SIM, topping-up and auto-recurring their goodybag using an international credit card.


Please note that goodybags only work in the UK and giffgaff to giffgaff calls and texts are only free whilst you are in the UK. Using a giffgaff SIM outside of the UK will incur roaming charges. Details of the charges that will apply can be found here.
