Number length[edit]

All telephone numbers are 11 numbers long (initial 0 plus ten numbers). The first two, three or four digits after the zero are the area code.
The possibilities are: (0xx) xxxx xxxx (for landlines), 0939 709 2858 (for mobiles) and 099xx xxx xxx (for MVNO).

When making a call within the same landline area code, initial 0 plus the area code can be omitted.

Example for calling[edit]

The international call prefix depends on the country you are calling from; e.g., 00 for most European countries, and 011 from North America. For domestic calls (within the country), 0 must be dialed before the area code. The prefix for international calls from Iran is 00 (e.g., for a United States number 00 1 ... should be dialled).

An example for calling telephones in Tehran is as follows:

  • xxxx xxxx (within Tehran)
  • 021 xxxx xxxx (within Iran)
  • +98 21 xxxx xxxx (outside Iran)

An example for mobile numbers is as follows:

  • 09xx xxx xxxx (within same providers, other providers or landlines in Iran)
  • +98 9xx xxx xxxx (outside Iran)
