22 June 2001 - extra digits for French Overseas Departments

As of 22 June 2001, the French Departments (DOM) of Guadeloupe, French Guiana, and Martinique require 10-digit domestic dialling.

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; +596 234567 international

After 22 June 2001: 0 596 234567; +596 596 234567 international

Mobile numbers:

Before 22 June 2001: 345678 domestic; +596 345678 international

After 22 June 2001: 0 696 345678 domestic; +596 696 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:

Also see information for France +33 for an overview of the French departments and territories.
