Abu Dhabi: Etisalat has added three countries — Afghanistan, Iran and Nigeria — to its ‘Wasel international add-on’ service, which allows prepaid customers to make international calls for the same price as local calls.

When calling countries such as Pakistan, India, Nepal, Egypt, Iran, Afghanistan, Sri Lanka, Bangladesh, China and Nigeria consumers will pay only 0.5 fils per second — the same rate as domestic calls.

This service is valid when calling all fixed and mobile numbers in Pakistan, India, Nepal, Iran, Bangladesh and China. When calling Afghanistan, Egypt, Sri Lanka and Nigeria, the low price is valid only for calls made to Etisalat numbers.

A call set-up fee of Dh1 per call will be applied at the beginning of the call.
