Lithuania uses an open telephone numbering plan with all phone numbers having nine digits, including the prefix "8", a 1-3 digit area code and 5-7 digit subscriber telephone number. The current plan was introduced in stages in 2001-2003, replacing Soviet-legacy area codes and altering some subscriber numbers.[1][2]

Overview[edit]

Lithuania uses a total of 47 area codes for landline phones, all beginning with 3, 4 or 5. Within same area code, landlines can be dialed without the prefix and the area code.[3]

Area codes for mobile numbers begin with 6, corporate or state institution numbers with 7, toll-free, reverse-charge and share-charge numbers with 8, and premium rate numbers with 9.[3]

Network services numbers begin with "1", dialed without a prefix. This includes numbers beginning with "11", reserved for emergency and special services, such as:

  • 112 – the national emergency number
  • 113 – Non-emergency medical number
  • 116 xxx – Harmonised services of social value
  • 117 - Telecommunication helpline
  • 118 – Directory assistance
  • 119 – Fault registration

Prefixes[edit]

Lithuania uses area code prefix "8", inherited from Soviet times and not changed during the 2002 changeover.[3]

It intends to change the prefix to "0", as used in many European countries.[3] The "0" prefix was not available due to delays rolling out the national emergency line 112, which kept Soviet-legacy emergency numbers 01, 02 and 03 in place until 2022 April 1.[4]

International dialing prefix "00" replaced Soviet-era 810 in 2003.

Lithuania uses +370 country calling code since 1993, replacing area code in Soviet-numbering space +7 012.
