how to dial from uk to south africa


Assuming you would like tips on how to dial from the UK to South Africa:

There are a few different ways to dial from the UK to South Africa, depending on what phone service you are using.

If you are using a landline, you can dial 087124303087, which is the South African country code. Then, you will need to dial the area code for the city you are trying to reach, followed by the local phone number.

If you are using a mobile phone, you can dial +27, which is the South African country code. Again, you will need to dial the area code for the city you are trying to reach, followed by the local phone number.

You can also use an internet phone service to call South Africa. To do this, you will need to sign up for an account with a service like Skype or Google Voice. Once you have an account, you can add South Africa as a contact. Then, you can call South Africa for free, or for a very low cost.

The country code for South Africa is 27. To call a South African landline from the UK, you need to dial the international access code (00), followed by 27, then the area code without the first 0, and finally the local seven-digit number. So, for example, if you were calling the Cape Town office of South African Airways, you would dial 00 27 21 934 0000.

To call a South African mobile phone from the UK, you need to dial the international access code (00), followed by 27, then the South African mobile code (71, 72, 73 or 74), and finally the eight-digit local number. So, for example, if you were calling a Vodacom mobile in Johannesburg, you would dial 00 27 73 123 4567.

Calls to South Africa from the UK are not cheap, so it’s worth considering alternatives such as Skype or WhatsApp calls, which use an internet connection rather than your phone’s minutes.
