Why Your Business Needs to Get Hong Kong Virtual Numbers
Hong Kong virtual phone numbers are capable of vastly expanding your business capabilities as soon as you buy one. The reason is that virtual phone numbers are part of the evolving digital landscape, which allows organizations to use add-ons and features that can increase their capabilities.
- Business hours and after-hours call routing
- Voicemail and voicemail-to-email forwarding
- Interactive voice response and auto-attendant
- Advanced call routing like simultaneous and sequential forwarding
- Call activity reports
For instance, your business may be based in New York City, which is 13 hours ahead of Hong Kong. By using the feature known as “time of day routing,” you can reroute calls from your Hong Kong number to another call center in a favorable time zone when you’ve officially closed business hours at your headquarters. Or, you can use “call recording” to monitor your employees and create a document of interaction with the public, which is also a requirement for international governing organizations in finance, investing, and more.
How to Get a Hong Kong Virtual Phone Number From United World Telecom

Once you’ve selected your country code, you will have the option to select the type of Hong Kong virtual phone number, including:

- “National”: these are non-geographic numbers in Hong Kong. They can be dialed locally in Hong Kong and from outside the country.
Depending on the type of Hong Kong virtual phone number you select, you will either be able to choose your new number from a list of available phone numbers or you’ll be provided one upon activation.
