Telephone numbers in Aruba have country code 297. It is one of the few countries outside Africa to have a country code starting with 2. Before Aruba seceded from the Netherlands Antilles in 1986, it was part of the Netherlands Antilles numbering plan (+599)[1] with phone numbers starting with +599 8. Landline numbers begin with 28, 52 or 58.[2] Mobile numbers begin with a 56, 59, 64, 73, 74 or 99. Numbers are seven digits long, otherwise in line with the North American Numbering Plan, despite not being part of it.
