How to Make an International Call
International phone calls made from one country to another typically require a Country dialing code and a City code. The table below contains the International Country and City Dialing Codes needed to make International Phone Calls.
From North America, the caller needs to dial 011 + (country dialing code) + (city dialing code) + (local phone number) in order to make an International Call to most locations. Some international locations do not have city dialing codes. In these cases, the caller only needs to dial 011 + (Country Code) + (local phone number). It is necessary to first dial 011 when making an international from the USA, Canada and a few other locations. The 011 is called the international access code or International Direct Dialing (IDD) code. In most other locations this code is 00 or 01 but it can vary between countries so check a local directory before trying to place an international call.
International Calls to a few locations from Canada and the USA do not require the caller to dial 011 before the country dialing code. These locations are one of the North America Dialing Plan (NANP) countries. They are noted in the table by the addition of a 1 before the Country Code (area code). To make calls to these locations just dial 1 + (country code) + (local phone number).
