Question: What is country code 01131? I am attempting to call the phone number 01131 10 206 xxxx.
Answer: 01131 is the country code for the Netherlands when dialed from the United States or Canada.
‘011’ is the exit code to call from the U.S. or Canada to the international switchboard. If calling from a different country, this code is different.
’31’ is the country code for Netherlands.
To call this number from within the Netherlands, dial 010 206 xxxx. Do not dial the leading ‘011’ or the country code ’31’. Include a leading ‘0’ (trunk prefix) with the number. If calling within Rotterdam from another landline phone, dial 206 xxxx (do not include the trunk prefix ‘0’ or the area code ’10’).
To call this number from the United States or Canada dial ‘011-31-10-206-xxxx’. Do not include any leading ‘0’ (sometimes listed as ‘089’ in the phone number).
To call this number from the United Kingdom, France, Germany, Spain, Italy, India, or many of the countries with exit code ’00’, dial ’00-31-10-206-xxxx’. These countries use exit code ’00’ instead of ‘011’. Do not include any leading ‘0’ (sometimes listed as ’01’ in the phone number).
To call this number from Australia dial ‘0011-31-10-206-xxxx’. Do not include any leading ‘0’ (sometimes listed as ’01’ in the phone number).

Question: I have a phone number starting with +31. The full number I have is +31 20 665 xxxx. How do I call this number?
Answer: +31 in a phone number means “call the Netherlands.”
“+” in a phone number means “dial your country’s exit code.” In the USA and Canada this is “011.” In the U.K., France, Belgium, Germany, and many European countries, it is “00.” In Australia, it is “0011.” In Japan it is “010.” Many mobile phones can dial a plus sign and it will automatically dial the local country’s exit code.
“31” is the country code for the Netherlands.
The rest of the phone number appears to be for a phone located in Amsterdam.
To dial this phone number from within the Netherlands, do not dial the exit code or the country code (31). Add the trunk prefix 0 to the phone number. Dial 0-20-665-xxxx.
To dial this phone number from the USA or Canada, dial 011-31-20-665-xxxx.
To dial this phone number from the U.K., France, Germany, Belgium, any many other European countries, dial 00-31-20-665-xxxx.
To dial this phone number from Australia, dial 0011-31-20-665-xxxx.
