Tag: VOIP in UAE

Looking for Cheap Voice and Video Calls from UAE?

First of all we need to say that VOIP (Voice over Internet Protocol) services are still disallowed in the United Arab Emirates. Voice and video calls with the applications and services like Skype, IMO, Line, WhatsApp are also limited. However there is still a great opportunity to use them in the UAE.

The main telecommunications providers in the country, etisalat and du, have both VoIP-based app, Botim, as part of  ‘unlimited’ voice and video call service. That is great, however, monthly service fee is huge! Dh50 and Dh100 for a month – for one user and for a family.

The UAE’s Telecommunications Regulatory Authority (TRA) sais that according to its regulatory policy , VOIP is prohibited Internet content.

But when we read this laws more carefully, it looks like VoIP services can be allowed in the UAE if they meet certain criteria and conditions.

As an example, Google Duo, which was launched last year, has not been blocked in the UAE and still works.

What about the others services like WhatsApp, Viber, Skype, IMO and others, you can unblock them with VPN – virtual private network.

This is safe and secure solution and it helps in 99% of cases.
