How to call Denmark (country code +45)

Calling to Denmark

  • 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.

Denmark’s country code may be mis-labelled:

  • Country code 0045 (exit code of ’00’ used in many European, Asian, and African nations followed by Denmark’s country code of ’45’).
  • Country code 01145 (exit code of ‘011’ used in the United States and Canada followed by Denmark’s country code of ’45’).

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

Use the same call sequence.

When calling a mobile phone user, call to the country where the mobile phone is registered, regardless of where the person being called is currently roaming.
