Support/FAQs / How to call India from Australia?

To call a phone number in India from Australia, you need to do the following:

When calling an Indian phone number from your mobile, you first need to add the country code of +91, followed by the area code and then the local number.
To enter “+”, hold down the “0” on your phone keypad for a second until the “+” symbol appears, then press 91. Remember to remove the leading “0” from the area code/mobile number if there is one.

For example, to dial the number (22) 5555 1234 from your Australian mobile you need to dial +91 22 5555 1234.
If calling from a landline, replace the +91 with 0011 91, so it would be 0011 91 22 5555 1234.

Call a Indian number from your mobile:
1. Enter the “+” symbol on your keypad by holding down the “0” key until it appears*
2. Enter the India country code (91)
3. Enter the India area code (remember to remove the leading 0 if there is one)
4. Enter the India local number

*Your mobile phone converts the “+” into the correct international code no matter what country you are calling from. In Australia, this is 0011 so the “+” replaces 0011. You can do this anywhere in the world if you are roaming in another country.
