Thuraya Prepay Plus and Thuraya Prepay NOVA Plus SIM cards can be purchased by clicking here. We sell prepaid vouchers (digital scratch codes) that the user loads (self service) onto their own Thuraya prepaid account through their own Thuraya phone. Our most popular prepaid plan is Prepay Plus. The NOVA Plus prepaid plan is optimized for use in Zone E countries but has higher rates outside of Zone E. All of our prepaid plans offer voice mail, SMS messaging and GmPRS always-on internet. Call detail records are not available on prepaid plans. Order Thuraya Scratch Codes by clicking here.

Thuraya Coverage Map
The dark blue area in the Thuraya Coverage Map above represents the primary coverage region of Thuraya. A list of covered countries is also shown below. Weaker "fringe" coverage may exist in the light blue areas. Even in the primary coverage regions, coverage can be blocked by nearby terrain features such as mountains or trees. You must have a direct line of sight between yourself and the Thuraya satellite to be able to make calls. Outfitter Satellite recommends that Thuraya customers verify that they know how to make calls before leaving for a remote location. If you have a prepaid SIM card, make sure you know how to check your balance and reload your SIM card.
If you have a GSM-cellular capable Thuraya phone such as the Thuraya XT DUAL, you will have additional GSM cellular coverage in many countries. Different regional operators charge different rates and some features of the Thuraya phone may not be supported by all GSM operators. As a rule, GSM operators in third world countries charge more for calls than the cost of Thuraya satellite-mode calls.
