Leaving made simple

Saying goodbye to your home away from home can be stressful. Cancelling services, leases, visas, bank accounts – there are a lot of things to wind up, but not enough time. Here are a few tips on how to cancel your monthly subscription with Etisalat easily (for Postpaid plans or eLife packages).

How to cancel your monthly subscription?

Your service will be disconnected immediately. No need to worry about hidden or late charges.
