International dialling codes

Each country is identified by a dialling code (country code) in the international numbering plan for telecommunications managed by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU).

The country code for Belgium is 32.

If  you are abroad and you want to call someone in Belgium, you should dial the number that precedes the international number (00 or simply +) followed by 32 and then the number of the person you want to reach, but omitting the zero. Example:  in order to call BIPT from abroad  you dial +32 2 226 88 88. And you do not dial 0 before the 4 if you call a mobile number in Belgium from abroad.

You can find the list of international dialling codes in your directory or on the Internet by filling out “international calling codes” as search term.
