Even though WhatsApp, Skype and other apps are mostly used for making international phone calls nowadays, there might still be confusion on the dial codes. Whenever you are using your own US or Canadian cell phone to call a number in Belgium, you are making an international call. You will also need to dial accordingly when using Skype. Even though WhatsApp, Skype and other apps are mostly used for making international phone calls nowadays, you may end up having to use a regular phone. Here’s how to dial.
- The International Access Code (IAC) for the US and Canada is 011 and for Belgium it’s 00
- The Country Code (CC) for Belgium is 32 and for the US and Canada it’s 1
- Area Codes in Belgium can be various digits in length
- To call Belgium from the US or Canada, dial IAC + CC + Local Number.
Example: The local telephone number for the Museum of Belgian Brewers is (0)- 25114987. The number could also be listed as +32 (0)-25114987. In both cases, you would dial 011-32-25114987.
