Nicaragua Country Dialling Codes
If you are currently travelling abroad and wish to call home or intend on making international telephone calls to Nicaragua, follow our simple step-by-step guide on how to make calls to Nicaragua 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 “+”.
Nicaragua Country Code: After the international dialling code, you’ll need to enter the country code for Nicaragua, which is “+505”
Area Code: The country has a unified area dialling code. The area dialing code for Nicaragua is +505. This code is used for all towns and settlements throughout the country.
As a result, when making calls to any town or location within Nicaragua, you will start with the country dialing code for Nicaragua (+505), followed by the relevant local phone number. There are no separate area codes within Nicaragua.
Local Number: After entering the country code, dial the local phone number of the person or business you want to reach in Nicaragua.
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 local number within Nicaragua, you would dial it as follows:
- International dialling code: “00” or “+”
- Nicaragua country code: “+505”
- Local phone number: XXX XXXX (replace with the actual number)
- So, if the local number is 123 4567, you would dial: +505 123 4567
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 Nicaragua.
