I have used WhatsApp with the same handset in the following countries with local SIM or a regional multi-country SIM within the last three months, It was seamless. Pop the SIM in, maybe change APN and full WhatsApp functionality.

Hong Kong, Philippines, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Indonesia, Taiwan, Japan, S Korea, Canada, US, UK

It is a network setting in your handset to connect to the right server for data, they are SIM specific.
Some SIM will automatically set it when you restart after inserting the new SIM, some you need to do it manually.

It has nothing to do with WhatsApp.
