Phone, Internet Services & Communications in Paphos

Phones in Paphos

The use of mobile devices is widespread in Paphos and throughout Cyprus, so you will have no problem using your device.

I recommend you check the roaming rates with your mobile provider before the flight.

Cyprus has many providers, such as Cyta and PrimeTel, so you won’t have problems finding one.

You can read more about the providers here.

Sim and eSim

Alternatively, you can consider using a local SIM card, which costs around €20 here.

Or, you can use an eSim which is a virtual sim card. It is easy to install, and you don’t need any physical SIM cards to use it.

I use the Airalo app when traveling, which is very convenient and cost-effective.

They offer eSim packages to Cyprus, and if you enter my coupon code, MATAN5401, you will get 3 USD off!

Dialling Code

The country code of Cyprus is 357, so if you want to call from your country to Paphos, you must add two zeros before, i.e., 00357.

This also applies to calls from Paphos – if, for example, you want to call Greece (30), you must dial 0030.
