Let's say I have a number in my country and WhatsApp account associated with it. I want to travel far away, where roaming would be ridiculously expensive. Is it possible that I can buy a SIM card local to that country I choose to travel to, and still be able to use my home country's WhatsApp number?

  • If you want to use both numbers on the same phone, use the answer here to set that up. Otherwise the answer below is the correct answer, there is no problem using ur old WhatsApp number as long as you don't uninstall.

Yes, you will be able to use Whatsapp with another SIM card and your old account, but do not reset or reinstall the app to not provoke number verification. Source: personal experience; https://faq.whatsapp.com/en/30028016/.
