List of country calling codes
Worldwide distribution of country calling codes. Regions are colored by first digit.
Country codes are a component of the international telephone numbering plan
, and are necessary only when dialing a telephone number to establish a call to another country. Country codes are dialed before the national telephone number. By convention, international telephone numbers are represented by prefixing the country code with a plus sign (+), which also indicates to the subscriber that the local international call prefix must first be dialed. For example, the international call prefix in all countries of the North American Numbering Plan
is 011, while it is 00 in most European, Asian and African countries. On GSM
(cellular) networks, the prefix may automatically be inserted when the user prefixes a dialed number with the plus sign.
Country calling codes are prefix codes
and can be organized as a tree
. In each row of the table, the country codes given in the left-most column share the same first digit; then subsequent columns give the second digit in ascending order. The countries are marked with their ISO 3166-1 alpha-2
When there are three-digit codes starting with "+jk", then the two-digit code +jk is unassignable, as denoted by "unass." Assignable but unassigned codes are denoted by the m-dash (—).
Ordered by code
Zones are organized principally by geographic location, but exceptions exist for political and historical alignments. Thus, the geographical indicators below are approximations only.
Zone 1: North American Numbering Plan
The North American Numbering Plan includes:
Originally, larger countries such as Spain, the United Kingdom and France, were assigned two-digit codes to compensate for their usually longer domestic numbers. Small countries, such as Iceland, were assigned three-digit codes. Since the 1980s, all new assignments have been three-digit regardless of countries' populations.

Alphabetical listing by country or region
Locations with no country code
, dialing is dependent on the parent country of each base:
Other places with no country codes in use, although a code may be reserved:
^ a b
Russia, Kazakhstan, and Abkhazia make up the Seventh World Numbering Zone. From August 2007, Kazakhstan changed all area codes to start with 7; however, 6 is also reserved for Kazakhstan. Digits 3, 4, and 5 are reserved for Russia. Abkhazia was assigned +7 840 for landline and +7 940 for mobile operators on 28 September 2009. Abkhazia will also continue using +995 44. Other digits are reserved for Russia. Currently, there are no internationally accessible numbers starting with 0, 1, 2 or 5 – these are access codes and similar arrangements.
