1 March 1999: Expansion to 7-digit national numbers

According to information in a document by regulator CONATEL as posted on an ITU numbering plan page (Word format), Haiti's national numbers were changed to 7-digit format by prepending the digit '2' before existing 6-digit subscriber numbers.

There was an indirect reference to the proposed national renumbering from an NCHR - Haiti Insight article. This is an unofficial reference.

There is a lack of formal and consistent telephone numbering information available regarding Haiti. However, there are sufficient details available to suggest that a 7-digit plan is now in effect. The numbering change would also allow for a future entry into the North American Numbering Plan, although there are no known serious plans for such a move.

until early 1990s?: single-digit area code format

Old country code lists in various telephone directories were indicating an old format of single-digit area codes in effect for Haiti at one time. 1 would be for Port-au-Prince, 2 for Gonaives, 3 for Cap-Haitien. No details are available on the old format, or when this was changed to a 6-digit national number format.

Telecom regulator is Conseil National des Telecommunications (CONATEL).
