Looking online the A54 should have esim but I don't see it in my SIM manager? 
Model is SM-A546E/DS, I'm based in the UK.

@moshk: Where did you purchase your Galaxy A54 from? If it is a UK model, then it should support an eSIM, as per the device specifications, however this may not be the case if the device was intended for use outside the UK.

Purchased new from a UK based seller on Amazon.
If I exchange for a UK based one do you know how I can tell if I receive a UK model?

@moshk: If you head to Settings > About phone > Software information > Service provider software version, what does it say here? UK models are typically EUX or BTC, however there are several network specific CSC codes that can also indicate that a phone is intended for use in the UK. If you take a look at the post below, then this should give you an idea of what you should be looking for.

XME - so Malaysia.

The device model was advertised (differently to what I received) as SM-A546BZKCEEB
Would that model have been for a UK version?
Not sure how the CSC relates to the model.

You need the SM-A546B version which is the UK/EU version that can take esim.The SM-A546E version sold on Amazon is the Malaysian version, although some of the suppliers say it's the German version but send out the Malaysian, which is what happened to me, so I sent it back for a full refund.Please also note the dual SIM version can't take two Sims, if you are also using an SD card for storage/expansion as well as a SIM

I think it can be solved by software I love that my phone is called A54 SM-A546E/DS Why this difference, knowing that the A55 supports it on all versions?
