  1. BSNL is no facility for International Roaming for its customer. Did not provide dual IMSI Sim card from BSNL Exchange. Location: Khatima, Uttarakhand. Pin:262308

  2. Can I activate international roaming in UAE, if I reached UAE without activated international roaming in my pre-paid BSNL? Help me to use my BSNL number here.

    1. There is no option available for you now. You need to replace your domestic SIM to Dual NG SIM first from the BSNL CSC first
