Area Code: none Subscriber Number: 10 digits Trunk Prefix: n/a International Prefix: 00
A similar change to 10-digit domestic dialling occurred 15 December 2000 in the French Department of Reunion.
International calls into these departments use the country code as before, but then dial the last 9 digits of the new domestic subscriber number, omitting the leading zero.
Mobile numbers in these departments are also now standardised to always began with 06 for domestic dialling.
Previously, calls within each department could be made by dialling just the 6-digit subscriber number.
The numbering changes are as follows:
Fixed/wireline subscriber numbers:
Before 22 June 2001: 234567 domestic; +594 234567 international
After 22 June 2001: 0 594 234567; +594 594 234567 international
Before 22 June 2001: 345678 domestic; +594 345678 international
After 22 June 2001: 0 694 345678 domestic; +594 694 345678 international
While the system is harmonised with France's numbering plan, there are no current plans to use country code +33 to reach the departments. Technical difficulties with carriers in countries near the departments were the reason cited by France telecom regulator ART.
ART made the decision on these changes 14th June 2000. For further information, see the pages:
