Roaming passes that are purchased for immediate use will be activated instantly.

For Digi customers, if you've purchased a roaming pass in advance, the activation window is from 12 a.m. to 2 a.m. (Malaysia time) on the chosen date. A confirmation SMS will be sent once your Roaming Pass is activated.

6. When should I purchase the Roaming Pass?

You can purchase either before you leave, or upon arrival at your destination country. We recommend purchasing it via Celcom Life App and MyDigi for great flexibility.

7. What is my roaming pass validity, and will I get notified once my pass has expired?

The validity period for each Roaming Pass will commence from the point of activation. Roaming Pass will be suspended once data has been completely exhausted. Subscribers can purchase another Roaming Pass to continue browsing. Once the Roaming Pass validity has expired, customers will be charged under daily unlimited roaming if they continue browsing (RM39/day).

For Prepaid subscribers, you will not be able to browse the Internet without a Roaming Pass.

You will get a notification upon pass expiry and your pass will expire as follows:



3-day Internet Pass: 72 hours upon subscription  

3-day Internet Pass: 72 hours from the moment of activation  


7-day Unlimited Internet Pass: Valid for 168 hours. For example, you have subscribed 7-Day Unlimited Pass at 10:40 PM. (14/5/2020), your pass will expire at 10:40 PM. (21/5/2020) Malaysia Time.  

7-day Unlimited Internet Pass: Your pass will expire at 11:59 PM on day 7 of your subscription  


30-day Unlimited Internet Pass: Valid for 720 hours. For example, you have subscribed 30- Day Unlimited Pass at 10.40 PM. (8/8/2020), your pass will expire at 10:40 PM (7/9/2020) Malaysia Time. 

30-day Unlimited Internet Pass: Your pass will expire at 11:59 PM on day 30 of your subscription

8. What happens if I fully utilise my quota?

  • For the 3-Day Pass – Once you've fully utilized your allocated quota, data usage will be blocked. You can easily repurchase the same pass to continue enjoying the services.
  • For the Unlimited Internet Passes – After exhausting your high-speed quota, your speed will be reduced to up to 1Mbps. This still provides a satisfactory experience for standard-definition streaming.

9. Can I purchase multiple roaming passes?

  • For the 3-Day Internet Pass – You can re-purchase the same pass within active validity.

  • For the 3-Day Pass – This pass is valid for a single country only. If you visit more than one country, you'll need to purchase a new pass.
