Telephone Codes

Hungary: +36

  • Calling from Hungary to foreign countries is pretty much the same as anywhere else. Almost all foreign countries can be direct-dialled. For calling local numbers, no prefix codes are required.
  • To call a local number within your area, dial the number only. You don't have to dial the area prefix code.
  • The telephone numbers in the capital Budapest are seven-digit. Suppose you call a number in Budapest from another area in Hungary, dial (061) and then the actual telephone number. The area code of the capital is (1).
  • To call another county, dial (06), then the two-digit respective area code and then the six-digit local number.
  • To call from abroad to a number in Hungary, dial your international access number (usually 00 or +), followed by the country code of Hungary (36), then the area code and the number (e.g., if you call Budapest: 00361... or +361 ...)
  • To make a call from a mobile phone to a fixed-line number, you always have to dial (06) and the two-digit area prefix.
