List of country calling codes

    This article is a travel topic
When calling a phone number in another country, there is usually a prefix you have to dial to indicate that you're placing an international call; this varies by country. After that international dialling prefix, you must dial the international country code for the country you are calling, followed by the local number. This is a list of those country codes.

There are 9 calling zones:

International prefix[edit]

Before dialling the area code, you usually have to dial an international prefix. This is so that the country code won't be confused with the first few digits of a local or national telephone number.

See the list at International dialling prefix.

Alternatively, if you have a mobile phone, you can dial the '+' key first before the country code regardless of which country you are calling from.
