Hungary area codes[edit]

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[edit]

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.
