Making phone calls to and from Afghanistan requires you to use various international dialing codes. Afghanistan dialing codes include an exit code and country code. When you dial Afghanistan, you must use the exit code of the country where you are calling and the Afghanistan country code. On the other hand, when you dial from Afghanistan, you must use the Afghanistan exit code and the country code of the country to which you are calling.
Use the following Afghanistan phone codes:
1. Look up the exit code of the country where you are calling if you want to dial to Afghanistan. In the event your phone has the “+” symbol, you can use the “+” symbol instead of the exit code. The HowToCallAbroad.com website has a list of Afghanistan dialing codes and codes of the other countries in the international phone system.
2. Use the “00” exit code when calling from Afghanistan to another country (see international dialing instructions below).
3. Use the “93” country code when dialing Afghanistan. This connects you to the national phone lines.
4. Look up the code for the country you are calling if dialing from Afghanistan. Just as there are distinct Afghanistan country codes, every country has separate codes for making international calls.
5. Use “0” in front of the area code and phone number when you make a non-international call from inside Afghanistan. This trunk code is part of the Afghanistan dialing codes that is not part of the international dialing format. Therefore, do not include this “0” trunk code when making an international phone call to Afghanistan.
International Dialing Instructions:
Always dial the exit code first and follow it with the country code. For example, dial 00 and the Afghanistan country code when dialing Afghanistan from the UK. But you would dial “00” and then the country code when calling from Afghanistan.
After dialing the exit code and country code in order, you then dial the same area code and phone number used to make a domestic call in Afghanistan. However, never include the Afghanistan trunk code.
