How to dial an international call from New Zealand

New Zealand, Tokelau, Niue, and the Cook Islands are all part of the Real of New Zealand, however each of these regions has their own independent country code. Calls between them should be dialed as an international phone call, and not as a domestic phone call. The Ross Dependency (also part of the Realm of New Zealand) is part of New Zealand's domestic phone system.

Dialing sequence

Calling to an international location from New Zealand follows the basic international call sequence of:

00one to three digit numberremaining numbers
New Zealand exit codedestination country codelocal phone number

First: Dial ’00’: The international switchboard is reached from New Zealand by dialing exit code ’00’.

Next: Dial the country code of the country being phoned: Country codes are 1 to 3 digits.

Next: Dial the destination local phone number: Local phone numbers vary in length depending on the country being called.

… from a mobile phone

Use the same call sequence.

When calling from a New Zealand mobile phone while roaming outside of New Zealand, dial the call sequence as if calling from the country where mobile phone is currently located.

When calling from a non-New Zealand mobile phone while roaming inside of New Zealand, dial the call sequence as if calling from New Zealand.

… from a VoIP phone

Use the same call sequence.

When calling from a New Zealand VoIP phone while roaming outside of New Zealand, dial the call sequence as if calling from New Zealand.

When calling from a non-New Zealand VoIP phone while located inside of New Zealand, dial the call sequence as if calling from the country where the VoIP phone is registered.

… from a satellite phone

Use the same call sequence.

Most satellite phone systems have their own country code and calling sequence independent of Tokelau’s.

… sending a fax

Use the same call sequence.
