How to call Greece (country code +30)

Calling to Greece

  • 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.

Greece’s country code may be mis-labelled:

  • Country code 0030 (exit code of ’00’ used in many European, Asian, and African nations followed by Greece’s country code of ’30’).
