How do you dial a +27 number?


When making a phone call to South Africa from the UK, you will need to dial the country code for South Africa, which is +27. To make a call to a landline in South Africa, you will need to dial the area code followed by the seven-digit phone number. For example, if you are trying to reach a landline in Johannesburg, you would dial +27 11 followed by the seven-digit phone number. To make a call to a mobile phone in South Africa, you would dial +27 72 followed by the nine-digit phone number.

South Africa has its own country code, which is +27. To dial a South African number from the UK, you need to dial the international access code (00), followed by the South African country code (27), and then the South African phone number.

So, for example, if you were trying to call the UK number 01234 567890 from South Africa, you would dial 00 44 1234 567890.
