International Dialing Codes

For many people, international dialing is a bit confusing and sometimes frightening. Most often, the person you are trying to contact will give you their international number which you can simply dial without having to think about it. If, however, you have the local number of someone in another county, you might have to do a bit of investigation.

Do not be concerned as the process is really straightforward. Each county has its own dialing code so all you need to know is where they are and what the code for that country is.

Assisted Dialling

If you are calling from a Telkom line, you can always use their international booked calls. All you have to do is dial 10900. They are available 24-hours and will assist in connecting you to the international number you require.

Dialling out of South Africa

On a landline such as Telkom, you would dial 00 and then the international code for the country you wish to reach. On a mobile phone, you would dial the + symbol in place of the 00.
