Hungary area codes

In Hungary the standard lengths for area codes is two, except for Budapest (the capital), which has the area code 1. Subscribers' numbers are six digits long in general; numbers in Budapest and cell phone numbers are seven digits long.

Making calls within and from Hungary

Calls within local areas can be made by dialling the number without the area code, such as 123-4567 in Budapest or 123-456 in other areas. However, this is not permitted in mobile phone networks.

Domestic calls to all other area codes must be preceded with 06 + area code. For example, a call from Budapest to Monor (area code 29) would be made as 06 29 123-456 and a call from Monor to Budapest (area code 1) would be made as 06 1 234-5678. When using mobile phones, the international format can be used instead: +36 1 234-5678.

Calls to international destinations are in the format 00 + country code + number. On mobile phones, + can be used instead of 00.

The country code for Hungary is 36.
