What Is International Call Forwarding?

An international call forwarding service automatically forwards calls from a virtual phone number to your designated phone or SIP address anywhere globally.

How do International Call Forwarding Numbers Work?

When you call a virtual number, it is connected to a cloud-based international call forwarding service which routes the call to one or more numbers chosen by the recipient. From the caller’s perspective, there is no difference between a virtual number and a plain old traditional number.

In fact, the caller and recipient may be located in different cities or different countries. However, for the caller, the phone number dialed is a local or toll-free number. So, no long-distance charges or (in some cases) international dialing codes are necessary.

An example of international call forwarding:

Imagine your US-based business targeting UK customers. With our service, UK customers dial a local number. You can set up automatic call forwarding for calls made to your UK number. These calls will now forward to your US office and reach you directly, fostering trust and encouraging engagement.
