Topping Up

    Ways to top-up

    • Top-Up Voucher

    4% Excise Tax applies and is automatically deducted from each top-up.

    Does mobile credit expire?

    Your mobile credit will not expire, but you need to make at least one chargeable event (a call or SMS or data session that costs credit) per 180 days to keep your SIM card and credit active.
