Abbreviations and notations (what does “+” mean?)

Abbreviations: F.S. Micronesia = FM Federated States of Micronesia;
Au. Ext. Terr.‎ = Australian External Territories [] (NF Norfolk Island, plus Australian bases in Antarctica).

What does the plus sign (+) mean?

The international standard format for writing telephone numbers is ‎+ Country City Number. For example, ‎+1 202 456 1111‎ (Washington, DC, USA) or ‎+44 20 7222 1234‎ (London, England, UK) or ‎+678 23499‎ (Vanuatu, no city code). The plus symbol indicates insert your international dialing prefix here. For the U.S. and Canada, it’s 011. For most of Europe, it’s 00. There are several other prefixes used in various countries around the world. Most mobile phones, especially GSM phones, allow you to store numbers in full international format starting with the plus symbol; the network automatically substitutes the correct prefix for you.

Many countries write domestic telephone numbers including the trunk digit ‘0’ with the city code. In most cases, you must drop the ‘0’ when dialing internationally. For instance, London ‎(020) 7222 1234‎ becomes ‎+44 20 7222 1234‎. However, Italy and a few other countries require you to dial the ‘0’. For instance, Rome ‎(06) 47613317‎ becomes ‎+39 06 47613317‎.

The North American Numbering Plan, country code ‎+1‎, includes the following countries and territories: US United States, CA Canada, AG Antigua & Barbuda ‎(+1 268)‎, AI Anguilla ‎(+1 264)‎, SX Sint Maarten ‎(+1 721)‎, AS American Samoa ‎(+1 684)‎, BB Barbados ‎(+1 246)‎, BM Bermuda ‎(+1 441)‎, BS Bahamas ‎(+1 242)‎, DM Dominica ‎(+1 767)‎, DO Dominican Republic (+1 809 and ‎+1 829‎ and ‎+1 849),‎ GD Grenada ‎(+1 473)‎, GU Guam ‎(+1 671)‎, JM Jamaica (+1 876 and ‎+1 658),‎ KN Saint Kitts & Nevis ‎(+1 869)‎, KY Cayman Islands ‎(+1 345)‎, LC Saint Lucia ‎(+1 758)‎, MP Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands/CNMI ‎(+1 670)‎, MS Montserrat ‎(+1 664)‎, PR Puerto Rico (+1 787 and ‎+1 939)‎, TC Turks & Caicos Islands ( ‎(+1 649)‎, TT Trinidad & Tobago ‎(+1 868)‎, VC Saint Vincent & the Grenadines ‎(+1 784)‎, VG British Virgin Islands ‎(+1 284)‎, and VI US Virgin Islands ‎(+1 340)‎. From the U.S. and Canada, dial ‎1 + xxx + xxx-xxxx‎ (1, then the area code, then the local number) for these countries.

Country code ‎+21‎ was originally designed to be a unified numbering scheme for ‎+212 MA‎ Morocco, ‎+213 DZ‎ Algeria, ‎+216 TN‎ Tunisia, and ‎+218 LY‎ Libya. Each country had reserved two or three of the ‎+21X‎ codes. However, only the codes shown here are actually in use. In 2011, country code ‎+211‎ was assigned to the new nation of SS South Sudan; country codes ‎+210‎, ‎+214‎, ‎+215‎, ‎+217‎, and ‎+219‎ are unassigned, and no longer reserved for North Africa.

تم تصميم رمز البلد الهاتفي ‎+21‎ في الأصل ليكون مخطط ترقيم موحد لـ ‎+212‎ ‎MA‎ المغرب و ‎+213‎ ‎DZ‎ الجزائر و ‎+216‎ ‎TN‎ تونس و ‎+218‎ ‎LY‎ ليبيا‏.‏ احتفظت كل دولة باثنين أو ثلاثة من الرموز الـ ‎+21‎‏.‏ ومع ذلك، فقط الرموز الموضحة هنا هي قيد الاستخدام بالفعل‏.‏ في عام ‎2011‎‏،‏ تم تعيين رمز الهاتف الدولي ‎+211‎ للدولة الجديدة في ‎SS‎ جنوب السودان؛ رموز الهاتف الدولي ‎+210‎ و ‎+214‎ و ‎+215‎ و ‎+217‎ و ‎+219‎ لم تعد محجوزة لشمال إفريقيا‏.‏

Country code ‎+388‎ was assigned for the “European Telephone Numbering Space.” The intent was to allow companies, primarily within the European Union, to have a single number with a European identity, rather than separate national numbers in the various countries in which they do business. However, due to lack of demand, the project was discontinued in 2009, and the ‎+388‎ code has been available for reassignment since 2011.

Country code ‎+800‎ is Universal International Freephone Numbers (UIFN). These numbers are toll-free from any country that participates in the UIFN scheme and from which the number’s owner elects to receive calls. The numbers are not the same as ‎1-800‎ numbers in North America or 0800 or 1800 or similar numbers in other countries.

Country code ‎+808‎ is used for international shared-cost services (UISCN). The caller pays a charge typically comparable to a domestic long-distance call, with the called party paying the remainder.

Country code ‎+870‎ is used for Inmarsat satellite service, primarily for ship-to-shore calls. (Codes ‎+871‎ through ‎+874‎ have been discontinued in favor of the single code ‎+870‎.)

Country codes ‎(+875)‎, ‎(+876)‎, and ‎(+877)‎ are designated for future mobile maritime satellite services.

Country code ‎+878‎ is used for Universal Personal Telecommunications (UPT) — a global “follow-me” number along the lines of the original ‎+1 500‎ within the United States or a British ‎+44 70‎ (i.e., ‎070xx‎) number. The subcode ‎+878 10‎ is assigned to VISIONng, which is to date the only provider that has applied for numbering resources in ‎+878‎.

Country code ‎(+879)‎ is designated for unspecified future national non-commercial purposes.

Country code ‎+881‎ is used for global satellite mobile phones, with the next digit identifying the operator: 0 or 1 is reserved for ICO Global Communications/Pendrell; 2 or 3 is Ellipso; 6 or 7 is Iridium; and 8 or 9 is Globalstar.

Country code ‎+882‎ is used for international networks, with the next two digits identifying the carrier. See the table below. Carriers marked with an asterisk (✻) provide regional satellite mobile phones.

Country code ‎+883‎ is designated for “international networks,” with the next 3 or 4 digits identifying the company. See the table below.

Country code ‎+888‎ was assigned to the United Nations Office for the Coordination of Humanitarian Affairs ‎(UN OCHA)‎ for disaster relief activities. Numbers within ‎+888‎ were assigned temporary and could be reassigned for a future disaster relief effort. All numbers had 11 digits following country code ‎+888‎. However, the assignment of country code ‎+888‎ has been withdrawn, leaving it available for reassignment.

Country code ‎+979‎ is for adult-oriented premium numbers, billed at whatever rates the providers choose. Beware any number advertised as ‎00 979‎ or ‎011–979‎!

Country code ‎(+991)‎ is assigned to a trial of a proposed International Telecommunication Public Correspondence Service ‎(ITPCS)‎, whatever that means.

Country code ‎(+999)‎ is reserved for an unspecified future global service.

Country code ‎+242‎ is CG Republic of Congo ‎(République du Congo)‎, including the capital, Brazzaville. CG Congo is the smaller nation to the northwest of CD Democratic Republic of Congo.

Country code ‎+243‎ is CD Democratic Republic of Congo ‎(République Démocratique du Congo)‎, including the capital, Kinshasa. CD D.R. Congo, formerly known as Zaire, is the much larger nation to the southeast of CG Republic of Congo.

Country code ‎+249‎ is SD Sudan. On ‎2011-07-09, SS South Sudan split from Sudan, forming a new nation. Telephone country code ‎+211‎ is now in effect for South Sudan. The new ISO code and Internet domain ‎.SS‎ has been activated.

DJ Djibouti ‎+253‎ changed every telephone number in the country, effective ‎2012-03-01. Fixed lines in the city of Djibouti and surrounding area are prefixed with ‘21’, other regions are prefixed with ‘27’, and mobiles are prefixed with ‘77’. Details in English, French, and Arabic on the Africa page. (Nouvelle numérotation à Djibouti الترقيم الجديد في جيبوتي )

French Indian Ocean: Major change! The French overseas departmental collectivity of YT Mayotte has separated telephonically from KM Comoros (a separate independent nation) under ‎+269‎. Effective ‎2007-03-30‎, YT Mayotte shares the ‎+262‎ code currently used by RE Réunion Island , which is an overseas département of France. Existing Mayotte landline numbers of the form ‎+269 xx xx xx‎ moved to ‎+262 269 xx xx xx‎; mobile numbers of the form ‎+269 xx xx xx‎ moved to ‎+262 639 xx xx xx‎. Existing numbers in Réunion and the Comoros are not affected. ( Renseignements en français ‎•‎ معلومات باللغة العربية)

Effective ‎2018-04-19‎, SZ Swaziland changed its name to (the Kingdom of) Eswatini, retaining the ISO code/‌Internet domain SZ and the telephone country code ‎+268‎.

Kalaallit Nunaat, also known as GL Greenland or Grønland, has country code ‎+299‎. Although the ‎+2‎ zone is primarily for Africa, ITU policy allows countries or territories in regions with no codes available (such as the ‎+5‎ zone where Greenland is located) to use spare codes from other regions. Country codes ‎+297‎ and ‎+298‎ were allocated under the same rule. Even though the ‎+3/+4‎ zone for Europe now has spare codes available, there is no plan to move FO the Faroe Islands from ‎+298‎ to a more European code.

VA Vatican City has been assigned country code ‎+379‎, but has apparently made no progress towards implementing it. Until further notice, continue to dial the Vatican City using Italy’s country code ‎+39 06 698 xxxxx‎. However, the ‎.va‎ Internet domain is now in use for official websites.

YU Yugoslavia split up, with BA Bosnia and Herzegovina , HR Croatia , MK North Macedonia, SI Slovenia, ME Montenegro, and RS Serbia receiving separate country codes. Kosovo declared independence from Serbia on ‎2008-02-17‎. Although Serbia still claims Kosovo as an autonomous province, Kosovo is recognized by more than half the member nations of the United Nations. The ITU has assigned telephone country code ‎+383‎ for Kosovo, and it is mostly operational, replacing numbering ranges in ‎+381‎ (RS Serbia), ‎+377‎ (MC Monaco), ‎+386‎ (SI Slovenia), that were used on an interim basis. Simply replace the interim country code with the new ‎+383‎ code; the remainder of the number is unchanged. Because of its disputed status, Kosovo has not yet been assigned an ‎ISO 3166-3‎ code; XK (officially a “user-assigned” code) is used on an interim basis for some purposes, but not for an Internet top-level domain. KV is available for assignment, but probably not until the status of Kosovo is officially resolved. Telephone country code ‎+380‎ was assigned to Ukraine, and other spare ‎+38X‎ codes may be assigned elsewhere in Europe.

MK Republic of North Macedonia was known initially as the Former Yugoslav Republic of Macedonia (FYROM), or simply as the Republic of Macedonia, to reduce confusion with the adjacent region in GR Greece. However, effective ‎2019-02-12‎, it is now known as North Macedonia, to eliminate any ambiguity.

Country code ‎+44‎ for UK United Kingdom also includes the British crown dependencies of GG Guernsey (‎+44 1481‎ landlines; ‎+44 7781‎ or ‎+44 7839‎ or ‎+44 7911‎ mobiles), IM Isle of Man (‎+44 1624‎ landlines; ‎+44 7524‎ or ‎+44 7624‎ or ‎+44 7924‎ mobiles), and JE Jersey (‎+44 1534‎ landlines; ‎+44 7509‎ or ‎+44 7700‎ or ‎+44 7797‎ or ‎+44 7829‎ mobiles). Mobiles in the UK are in the range ‎+44 74xx‎ through ‎+44 79xx‎.

MX Mexico previously required that calls to mobiles insert the prefix ‘1’ between the country code ‎+52‎ and the area code. For example, a landline in Guadalajara was ‎+52 33 xxxx xxxx, but a mobile from Guadalajara was ‎+52 1 33 xxxx xxxx. However, effective ‎2019-08-03‎, the prefix 1 is no longer be necessary. Mexico eliminated area codes, per se, combining the former area code and local number into a uniform 10‑digit national number (‎2+8‎ or ‎3+7‎). All calls within Mexico are dialed as 10 digits with no prefix. For more information, see mexico-2019.html.

MX México anteriormente requería que las llamadas a móviles inserar el prefijo ‘1’ entre el código del país ‎+52‎ y la clave LADA (el indicativo regional). Por ejemplo, para llamar a un teléfono fijo a Guadalajara, se marcaba ‎+52 33 xxxx xxxx, pero para llamar a un móvil guadalajarense, se marcaba ‎+52 1 33 xxxx xxxx. Sin embargo, a partir del ‎2019-08-03‎ ya no se necesita el prefijo 1. México eliminó las claves LADA, per se, en combinando la clave anterior y el número local en un nuevo número nacional de 10 dígitos (‎2+8‎ o ‎3+7‎). Todas las llamadas dentro de México se marcan como 10 dígitos sin ningún prefijo. Para más detalles, consultar mexico-2019.html.

GP Guadeloupe covers the French Caribbean islands of Guadeloupe, Marie-Galante, La Désirade, and Les Saintes. The islands of BL Saint-Barthélemy and MF Saint-Martin have separated politically from Guadeloupe, but continue to use ‎+590 and ‎.gp for the time being.

SX Sint Maarten: The Dutch side of the Caribbean island of Saint Martin changed from ‎+599 5 to ‎+1 721 5. The change was originally to take effect ‎2010-05-31‎, but was postponed to ‎2011-09-30‎, mandatory ‎2012-03-31. At present, all 7‑digit local numbers in Sint Maarten begin with the number ‘5’; all former numbers beginning with ‎+599 5 must now be dialed using North American area code ‎+1 721, but other numbers in ‎+599 are not affected. The French side of Saint-Martin remains in ‎+590, and the other islands of the former AN Netherlands Antilles remain in ‎+599.

Other changes are underway with the dissolution of AN Netherlands Antilles as a political entity. AW Aruba ‎(+297)‎ left the N.A. on ‎1986-01-01‎ to form a separate constituent country within the Kingdom of the Netherlands; CW Curaçao and SX Sint Maarten did the same on ‎2010-10-10‎, on which date (BQ) the BES islands (Bonaire, Sint Eustasius, and Saba) became municipalities in the province of Noord-Holland. The new ISO country code (BQ) is not yet in use for the Internet, but may be activated in the future. The ‎.an‎ Internet domain has been discontinued as of ‎2015-07-31‎. Until ‎.bq‎ is activated, use ‎.nl‎ for the BES islands.

Country codes ‎+670‎ and ‎+671‎ were previously used for MP the Commonwealth of the Northern Mariana Islands (CNMI; includes Saipan and Tinian) and GU Guam, which have now joined the North American Numbering Plan (country code ‎+1‎). You must now use ‎+1 670‎ for CNMI and ‎+1 671‎ for Guam. (The new North American area codes match the previous international country codes.) Country code ‎+670‎ is now in use by TL Timor-Leste (East Timor), which declared its independence from ID Indonesia after two decades of occupation. All landline numbers in Timor-Leste are 7 digits with no city code or area code. Effective ‎2012-07-31‎, 7-digit mobile numbers beginning with ‎+670 7‎ add an additional 7 to the beginning of the subscriber number; i.e., ‎+670 77‎. New mobile numbers in the range ‎+670 78‎ have also been added.

Australian External Territories, country code ‎+672‎, includes NF Norfolk Island and the Australian bases in Antarctica. It once included CC Cocos Islands ‎(+61 8 9162)‎ and CX Christmas Island ‎(+61 8 9164)‎, but those territories have been integrated into ‎+61‎ with AU Australia, with numbers of the form ‎+61 8 916X XXXX.

In 2005, AS American Samoa, a U.S. territory in the Pacific Ocean, moved from ‎+684‎ to ‎+1 684‎. (From North America, ‎011-684‎ changed to ‎1-684‎.) Country code ‎+684‎ is now available for reassignment. (Please note that the change for American Samoa did not affect WS the Independent State of Samoa, formerly known as Western Samoa, which retains country code ‎+685‎.)

New country codes have been assigned for several European microstates in the ‎+37X‎ range, and for several Asian former Soviet republics in the ‎+99X‎ range. So far, KZ Kazakhstan has remained in ‎+7‎, but that is about to change. Effective 2023-01-01 (permissive), 2025-01-01 (mandatory), Kazakhstan will use ‎+997‎.

VN Vietnam changed 98% of all telephone numbers in 2017 and 2018. Details (in Vietnamese, English, and French) are available on the Vietnam 2018 page.

Italy, and possibly other countries, formerly used country code ‎+851‎ (officially unassigned) for DO Dominican Republic (‎+1 809‎ & ‎+1 829‎ & ‎+1 849‎), BM Bermuda (‎+1 441‎), PR Puerto Rico (‎+1 787‎ & ‎+1 939‎), and VI U.S. Virgin Islands (‎+1 340‎). Country code ‎+854‎ was also used for AI Anguilla (‎+1 264‎), BB Barbados (‎+1 246‎), and JM Jamaica (‎+1 876‎). However, the correct codes are as shown above. All other countries or territories formerly in ‎+1 809‎ (in the Caribbean region) now have their own unique area codes within country code ‎+1‎.

DO Dominican Republic is sometimes erroneously referred to as “country code 809” — but in fact it is country code 1; city codes 809, 829, and 849. Country code ‎+809‎ is unassigned.

The Republic of China (TW Taiwan) is officially recognized by the ITU as a part of CN the People’s Republic of China. The country code ‎+886‎ is designated as “Taiwan, China,” as opposed to the designation of ‎+86‎ as “China (People’s Republic of).” However, calls to Taiwan — including calls originating from the People’s Republic of China, Hong Kong, or Macau — are routed using country code ‎+886‎, as shown in the table above. (The ‎+86 6‎ numbering space in China’s numbering plan was previously reserved for Taiwan, although China has now released those numbers for assignment on the mainland.) HK Hong Kong was politically united with the PRC on ‎1997-07-01‎; all indications are that China has no plans to change the numbering for Hong Kong in the foreseeable future. MO Macau was united with the PRC on ‎1999-12-20‎, but also retains its separate country code.

Country code ‎+970‎ has been implemented for the areas controlled by PS the Palestinian Authority in the West Bank and Gaza. Details remain sketchy. For the foreseeable future, areas controlled by the Palestinian Authority may be dialed by simply substituting ‎+970‎ for the Israeli code ‎+972‎, using the same city code and local number. At some point in the future, the Palestinians may undertake a renumbering of codes under ‎+970‎.

‏وقد تم تنفيذ رمز البلد‏ ‎+970‎ ‏المناطق التي تسيطر عليها السلطة الفلسطينية في الضفة الغربية وقطاع غزة. التفاصيل لا تزال غامضة. في المستقبل المنظور، يمكن طلبه المناطق التي تسيطر عليها السلطة الفلسطينية ببساطة عن طريق استبدال‏ ‎+970‎ لرمز ‎+972‎ ‏الإسرائيلي، وذلك باستخدام نفس رمز المدينة والرقم المحلي. في مرحلة ما في المستقبل، قد الفلسطينيين إجراء إعادة ترقيم رموز تحت‏ ‎+970‎‏.‏

Internet Notes

Internet notes:

The name of each country or territory is preceded by its ISO two-letter country code. In most cases, this two-letter code corresponds to the national top-level Internet domain; for example, Turkey has the ‎.tr‎ domain. Thus, you can find both the telephone country code and the e-mail country code here. Note that a few of the ISO country codes are not yet in use for the Internet: EH Western Sahara, PM Saint Pierre & Miquelon, WF Wallis & Futuna Islands, and YT Mayotte. Russia continues to use ‎.su‎ for some websites, more than 30 years after the dissolution of the Soviet Union. Also, for purposes other than the Internet, the ISO code of GB for Great Britain is used for the United Kingdom. (For example, GBP is the currency code for British pounds.)

There are now more than a thousand other Internet top-level domains. Here are just a few of those not listed above:
