Burundi Country Dialling Codes

Burundi country dialling codes

If you are currently travelling abroad and wish to call home or intend on making international telephone calls to Burundi, follow our simple step-by-step guide on how to make calls to Burundi from outside of the country:

Country Code: Begin by dialling the international dialling code to exit your country and enter the international calling network. The international dialling code for most countries is “00” or “+”. You can also use the country-specific international access code if it differs from “00” or “+”.

Burundi Country Code: After the international dialling code, you’ll need to enter the country code for Burundi, which is “+257”.

Area Code: Depending on where in Burundi you’re calling, you may need to include an area or city code.

Local Number: After entering the country and area code (if applicable), dial the local phone number of the person or business you want to reach in Burundi.

Call Button: Finally, press the call button on your phone or wait for the call to connect if you’re using a landline.

For example, if you were calling a number in Bujumbura, the capital of Burundi, you would dial it as follows:

  • International dialling code: “00” or “+”
  • Burundi country code: “+257”
  • Bujumbura area code: “22”
  • Local phone number: XXX XXXX (replace with the actual number)
  • So, if the local number is 123 4567, you would dial: +257 22 123 4567

Shown below are local destinations in Burundi and the relevant area codes:

IDD CODE COUNTRY CODE CITY AREA CODE
00 257 Bujumbura 22
Bururi 23
Cankuzo 21
Gitega 26
Karuzi 23
Kirundo 29
Muyinga 25
Ngozi 27
Rutana 24
Ruyigi 28

Remember to consider the time zone difference when making international calls, so you don’t call at inconvenient hours. Additionally, be aware of any international calling rates that may apply, as these can vary depending on your service provider and the specific calling plan you have.

Always double-check the dialling codes and numbers before placing an international call to ensure that you connect successfully with your desired contact in Burundi.
