Djibouti Country Dialling Codes

Djibouti country dialling codes

If you are currently travelling abroad and wish to call home or intend on making international telephone calls to Djibouti, follow our simple step-by-step guide on how to make calls to Djibouti 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 “+”.

Djibouti Country Code: After the international dialling code, you’ll need to enter the country code for Djibouti, which is “+253”.

Area Code: Depending on where in Djibouti 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 Djibouti.

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 Djibouti City, the capital of Djibouti, you would dial it as follows:

  • International dialling code: “00” or “+”
  • Djibouti country code: “+253”
  • Djibouti City area code: “21”
  • Local phone number: XXX XXXX (replace with the actual number)
  • So, if the local number is 123 4567, you would dial: +253 21 123 4567

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

IDD CODE COUNTRY CODE CITY AREA CODE
00 253 Ali Sabieh 41
Arta 45
Balho 44
Dikhil 42
Djibouti City 21
Dorra 43
Holhol 41
Loyada 43
Obock 44
Tadjourah 43

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 Djibouti.
