Samoa Area Code

+685 is the dialing code for Samoa.

The area code of Samoa is +685. It is the country code assigned to the islands of Samoa by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU). The +685 area code is used for both landline and mobile phone numbers in Samoa. The local dialing format for making calls within Samoa is to dial 0 plus the seven-digit phone number. For international calls, you must first dial +685 followed by the seven-digit phone number. For example, when calling a landline in Apia, you would need to dial +685 20 1234567.

When calling a mobile phone in Apia, you would need to dial +685 76 1234567. If you are calling from outside of Samoa, you will need to use the international access code for your country before entering the country code for Samoa (i.e., +685). In addition, there are some services which require a specific prefix before entering the seven-digit number such as directory inquiries (+685 11) or operator assistance (+685 12).

For those located within Samoa who want to make an international call, they must first dial 00 followed by their country’s exit code and then enter the destination number with its corresponding area or city code. For example, if one wanted to call Australia from Samoa they would need to dial 00 61 2 9123 4567 where 61 is Australia’s exit code and 2 is Sydney’s area or city code.

Overall, it is important to remember that when making a call within or outside of Samoa that one must always include the appropriate area/city codes as well as any additional prefixes that may be required for certain services such as directory inquiries or operator assistance. Additionally, when making an international call from within Samoa it is important not forget that one must always begin with 00 followed by their country’s exit code before entering the destination number with its corresponding area/city codes.
