Indians are everywhere!
It doesn’t matter which country you are in right now, you are sure to find some Indians there. More than 30 million Indians are living abroad right now and being away from their Country I am sure they miss their country and their families every day.
Very few modes of communication are available and people moving abroad for the first time face problems calling their families in India, not knowing how exactly to dial an Indian phone number from overseas.
If you have a business in India, and you have US or UK customers, if they simply dial your local Indian phone number they will not be able to reach you, the call will not go through at all.
Every country has different country codes and different exit codes and to call an international number, firstly you need to know the exit code of your country and the country code of the number you are dialing.
The exit code for the USA is 011 and India’s country code is 91. So now that you know the exit code and country code of these two countries, we can get started on how you can call India from the US.
So, today we will be discussing how you can call India from the USA, but before we need to understand a few more things in detail to actually start the process.
India has two types of numbers, local landline numbers, and mobile phone numbers. Landline phone numbers most of the time are accompanied by the STD code of the particular state you are dialing.
So if you are trying to dial a local landline phone number from the USA you need to know the area code of the states as well. I am linking to a list of Indian STD codes that you can refer to while dialing an Indian number.
So, first lets see how you can dial a local Indian telephone number from the USA.
To dial a local Indian number from the US first start by dialing the USA exit code (011), now dial India’s country code (91), now dial the STD code of the state you are calling (eg: 11 for Delhi), now dial the full phone number you are trying to call.
Dial the US exit code (011), now dial India country code (91), now dial the mobile phone number you want to reach in India (xxxxxxxxxx).
So, this is how you can call an India number from the US with ease. This is very easy to do and you need to follow very few steps.
There’s is one more thing that can help ease this process and eliminate the need of using exit codes and country codes, using this method your friends or customers from the US can reach you or your business easily and for free.
If you have a business in India and are targetting USA customers for your business, you can buy a USA toll free number for your business so that customers from USA can call your business easily without getting charged.
USA toll free numbers eliminate the need for adding exit codes and country codes. If you want to provide your customers an easy way to reach you then I wholeheartedly recommend you buy a USA toll free number or a Canada toll free number.
If you are someone from the USA you can buy India toll free number for your business and distribute them among your Indian customers.
You can use the guide above to call other country numbers as well, all you need to know is your country code, country code of the country you are trying to call, and the phone number you will be calling.
Example: Your country exit code+ India’s country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Mexico exit code 00+ India’s country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Thailand exit code 001+ India’s country code (91)+ phone number
Dial South Korea exit code 001,002+ India’s country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Singapore exit code 001,008+ India’s country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Nigeria exit code 009+ India country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Australia exit code 0011+ India country code (91)+ phone number
Dial Canada exit code 011+ India country code (91)+ phone number
