Zimbabwe was allocated its own country code by the International Telecommunication Union, +263, in the late 1960s, when it was known as Rhodesia. To dial a number in Zimbabwe from another country, the international call prefix depends on the country from where the call is being made, e.g. 00 for most European countries, and 011 from North America, followed by the country code.
To dial a number in another country from Zimbabwe, a subscriber would dial the international access code 00 followed by the country code and the number required, for example, to call a number in Johannesburg, South Africa, 00 27 11 xxx xxxx. Until 1996, the international access code was 110. Until the 1990s, calls to Zimbabwe could be made from South Africa using the regional code 0194.
