Saint-Martin phone numbers explained

Number details

Saint-Martin phone numbers are nine digits (ten including a leading ‘0’ that is not dialed when calling from outside the region). The leading ‘0’ is used when Saint-Martin is called locally or from France or French Overseas Departments and Territories (except for those in the Pacific).

The first three digits designate whether the phone number is a landline (‘590’) or mobile (‘690’) – these numbers exist to make the Saint-Martin phone system compatible with the French system. Note that the country code for Saint-Martin is also ‘590’, resulting in ‘590’ being dialed twice in the phone number.

Mobile numbers begin ‘690’.

Saint-Martin shares country code ‘590’ as well as exchanges ‘590’ and ‘690’ with Guadeloupe and Saint-Barthélemy.
