How to call Belarus (country code +375)

Calling to Belarus

  • A leading ‘8’ is not included in the international call sequence – it is only used in Belarus for domestic long distance calls and domestic calls to a mobile phone.
  • A leading '+' in the phone number means 'dial your country's exit code'.
  • Calling from a mobile phone: dial from on the country where you're currently located.
  • Calling from a VoIP or satellite phone: dial from on the country where the phone is registered.

Belarus’ country code may be mis-labelled:

  • Country code 00375 (exit code of ’00’ used in many European, Asian, and African nations followed by Belarus’ country code of ‘375’).
  • Country code 011375 (exit code of ‘011’ used in the United States and Canada followed by Belarus’ country code of ‘375’).

When calling to a mis-labelled country code, remove the exit code from the call sequence and replace it with the exit code of the country the call is dialed from.

… to a mobile (cellular) phone or text (sms)

Use the same call sequence.

Mobile phone numbers begin with ’25’, ’29’, ’33’, or ’44’.
