International Dialling Codes (Prefixes)

An international dialling code (or prefix) is used to make an international phone call out of a country. These codes are also referred to as international access codes, international direct dialling (IDD) codes and exit codes.

In Australia the IDD code is 0011 for voice calls, in the U.S. it is 011 and in the UK it is 00. The codes vary from country to country. Three example calls are given below.

Example call from Australia to the UK:

0011 (Australian IDD code) + 44 (UK) + 7651 123 123 (mobile number without the 0)

Example call from the U.S. to Sydney, Australia:

011 (U.S. IDD code) + 61 (Australia) + 2 (Sydney) 8765 1234 (local number)

Example call from the UK to Sydney, Australia:

00 (UK IDD code) + 61 (Australia) + 2 (Sydney) 8765 1234 (local number)

So basically, to make a call out of a country, the caller must first dial that country's IDD code, then the destination country code, then the area code (usually) and the local phone number. If the call is to a mobile number, no area code is used.

The table below is a list of international dialling codes by country. Codes with X represent the various telephone carrier specific codes within that country.
