Recharge while Roaming with Etisalat

Wasel Prepaid customers can now recharge their mobile accounts whilst they're on the go in different countries around the world. The new service has been introduced in Egypt and Saudi Arabia, with more destinations to be included soon.

Customers can top up their mobile accounts via recharge cards while they’re away from home. They can easily use the same recharging scratch cards or vouchers that are being used in the visited country to add credit to their account. Customers that need to recharge can dial *134*pin number# and press the call key. The credit purchased will be converted and available to customers in UAE Dirhams. Upon recharge, customers can also check their credit balance by calling *121#.

Recharge while Roaming is a new alternative to recharging Wasel accounts, in addition to the current available options such as recharging online, mobile payments, and auto pay that allows customers to get their Wasel recharged automatically in regular intervals, upon a pre-set configuration.

Khalifa Al Shamsi, Senior Vice President of Marketing at Etisalat: "This new value-added offering allows Etisalat’s prepaid roaming customers to easily top up their accounts in the same way as they do in the UAE.”
