Is your Jio sim not working in Saudi Arabia? Are you facing a “No Network” issue on Jio sim outside India? Did you forget to recharge the sim card with the roaming package before going on a vacation?

Don’t worry, you’re in the right place. I have a quick and effective solution for this problem and it’s not going to take much time.

Usually, sim providers like Airtel & Vodafone don’t have this problem as they self-register even without the roaming package activated within India.

However, Jio especially if the sim is never recharged with the International Roaming package then you will never get the network when you land there and even recharging with the International Roaming package doesn’t work since you’re without a network in another country.

Also, you don’t need to recharge with any International Roaming package if you’re planning to use the SIM for only OTP and SMS purposes. You will get the network without recharging.
