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 Slovenia, 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 Slovenia it’s 00
- The Country Code (CC) for Slovenia is 386 and for the US and Canada it’s 1
- Area Codes in Slovenia can be various digits in length
- Slovenia uses a trunk code, it is 0
- To call Slovenia from the US or Canada, dial IAC + CC + Local Number.
Example: The local telephone number for the Museum of Modern Art is (0)- 1 2416 800. The number could also be listed as +386 (0)- 1 2416 800. In both cases, you would dial 011-386-1 2416 800. Cell phones and VoIP allow you to simply enter the plus sign and wireless networks automatically know it is an international call. Notice the Trunk code (0) is dropped when you dial.
