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 Austria, you are making an international call. You will also need to dial accordingly when using Skype.
- The International Access Code (IAC) for the US and Canada is 011 and for Austria it’s 00
- The Country Code (CC) for Austria is 43 and for the US and Canada it’s 1
- Area Codes in Austria can be various digits in length
- To call Austria from the US or Canada, dial IAC + CC + Local Number.
Example: The local telephone number for the Vienna Opera House in Austria is (0) 1 512 3457. The number could also be listed as +43 (0) 1 512 3457. In both cases, you would dial 011-43-1 512 3457.
