Telephone numbers in Paraguay all have the same format since 2002, consisting of the country code (595), followed by a phone number.
Phone numbers in Paraguay have 9 digits. The first two or three digits are the area code, the remaining six or seven digits are the subscriber number.
According to ITU document for Paraguay, the national number format for the basic telephony service may have 2 variations:
|Area code||Subscriber number|
|A B||X Y Z M C D U|
|A B E||X Y M C D U|
Where A is NOT equal to 0, 1, 8 and 9; and B, X and Y is NOT equal to 0.
To make local calls inside Paraguay, the 6- or 7-digit subscriber number is used.
To make a call to cell phone, dial "0" + the number of cell phone.
To make inter-provincial calls, it is required to dial prefix "0" followed by (P)QR code + the 9-digit phone number.
(P)QR is the code for long-distance basic service providers which have the following format: (P)[2-7][1-8]. Presently(?), digit "P" is reserved. Thus, only 2 digits "QR" are used presently.
To make an international call, it is required to dial prefix "00" followed by (P)QR code + the international number.
Numbers starting with the digit "1" are used for special services like Ambulance - 128.
