Visitors to the country will be connected automatically to one of the operator's networks as soon as they cross the border or as soon as they switch their phones on after their planes have reached the gate.

All operators send SMS messages to new phones on their network with useful information and help desk phone numbers that you can call. Do not erase those SMS messages during your stay, as they come in handy during an emergency.
