International telephone numbers: What are the country codes?

15 May 2023
international telephone-numbers

Business travellers, holidaymakers, digital nomads – anyone who is travelling abroad and wants to call home has to worry about the telephone prefixes. But even if you are called from abroad, you will certainly wonder which country the call is coming from. Therefore, in the following article you will find the area codes sorted by number as well as by country.

Tips for travellers

You can find more tips for your next trip in our trip preparation text.

Why do the prefixes start with a “+”?

The “+” sign ensures that the call also goes abroad. Depending on the country and its area code, it would otherwise not be possible to distinguish between a domestic call and a call to another country. In Europe with the area codes +41 (Switzerland), +49 (Germany) or +43 (Austria) this is less of a problem. However, the situation is different in countries with only one area code, such as the USA, Russia or Canada. For example, the American number 6515551212 without a “+” is treated as a domestic call. With a “+”, on the other hand, the call goes to Singapore (area code +65).

Country code by numbers

All countries of the world are divided into 9 blocks.

Zone 0: 

Not assigned

Zone 1: North America & Caribbean

In contrast to the rest of the world, the USA, Canada and some countries in the Caribbean are grouped together under the +1 area code. This is followed by the usual country code. In the USA and Canada, the individual states and provinces each have their own area codes. You can find more information here. 

Zone 2: Africa & Greenland

Zone 3: Europe

Zone 4: Northern & Eastern Europe

Zone 5: Central & South America

Zone 6: Southeast Asia, Australia and Oceania

Zone 7: Russia, Russian-occupied territories, and Kazakhstan

Zone 8: Southeast and East Asia and special numbers

Zone 9: Middle East, West, Central and South Asia
