If you require a new SIM card for your main or additional device, simply order it online and free of charge. You can pick up your new SIM card at any kiosk or Press & Books (no reservation required) or have it delivered to your home address by post within 3 working days.

A SIM card cannot be dispatched abroad or only in consultation with us. However, it is simple to order and activate an eSIM online because there is no physical card to supply. Note that it needs to be activated in My Swisscom and not via SMS when you are abroad.
