Steve Kropla maintains a comprehensive list
of international dialing codes. The table provides a list
of all the countries in the world, their country dialing
code (the prefix you would use to call a number in that
country eg. The US is +1, while the UK is +44) and their
international and local direct dialing codes (the prefix
you would use in a country to dial internationally or
locally – the
international direct dialing code in South Africa is 09,
while the local direct dialing code is 0). Thus to phone
the US from South Africa, you would dial 09-1-number,
while to phone the UK, you would dial 09-44-number.
In addition, you can click on any country in the table
and get a comprehensive list of the main city dialing
codes in that country (including mobile/cellular operators).
International numbering plans
International Numbering Plans, a site that strives to
make international dialing databases more accessible,
you can access international area code lists and get instructions
on how to dial internationally
from various countries.
This site combines some of the features
of Steve Kropla’s
site and that of International Numbering Plans. Click
here to visit the site. It is worth a visit if the other
two can’t help you. It has a useful reverse look-up,
if you know the country code, but don’t know what
country it refers to – reverse look up.
