Albania Country Dialling Codes

Albania country dialling codes

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

Albania Country Code: After the international dialling code, you’ll need to enter the country code for Albania, which is “+355”.

Area Code (if necessary): Depending on where in Albania 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 Albania.

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 Tirana, the capital city of Albania, you would dial it as follows:

  • International dialling code: “00” or “+”
  • Albania country code: “+355”
  • Tirana area code: “4”
  • Local phone number: XXX XXXX (replace with the actual number)
  • So, if the local number is 123 4567, you would dial: +355 4 123 4567

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

00 355 Berat 32
Durrës 52
Elbasan 54
Fier 34
Korçë 82
Lezhë 215
Shkodër 22
Tirana 4
Vlorë 33

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 Albania.
