Telephone numbers in Saudi Arabia have 7 digits, 5 digits (00966) for area codes (from 011 to 017 except 05X whose code is confined to mobile numbers).[1]

Numbering plan[edit]

The country's country calling code is +966. Saudi Arabia's numbering plan is the following:

Although if you switch between providers the your number prefix stays the same. For example, if the user of 0559565411 (STC) switchs to Zain (059) they still keep their original number (0559565411) without any adjustments.
