Use Google Fi outside of the US

International Roaming Policy

Activation: Google Fi’s Terms of Service require you to activate and use Google Fi service mainly in the United States (not including territories) for at least one day before using Fi abroad. Learn more about activating Fi service. You can reactivate your plan while abroad. For example, you could switch devices or perform a factory reset.

Extent of use: If the majority of your usage occurs outside of the United States over a consecutive 90-day period, we will suspend your international data (your account stays active). You can avoid a suspension by returning to the US for at least a week. You’ll receive a warning email and notification in the Fi app 30 days before suspension.

Suspension exit: When your data has been suspended for extended international use, you can still use your phone to call and text, but you will lose international data access until we have observed significant usage in the United States for at least 30 days.

Exceptions: We grant international exceptions for military and State Department employees who serve abroad through verification of government status.
