Telephone Numbers in Thailand
The National Broadcasting and Telecommunications Commission (NBTC) manages Thailand’s telephone numbering plan. It is in accordance with ITU standards.
Thailand Phone Number Format
Thailand’s country calling code is +66. However, it’s not necessary to dial +66 from within Thailand. In 2001, the Kingdom switched to a closed dialing system. This requires callers to dial 0 followed by the phone number in order to reach their destination. It also means that callers must always dial the area code, regardless of their location.
A full phone number in Thailand contains nine digits, including the standard prefix 0. The area code and number are usually separated by a hyphen.
Geographic Area Codes
Geographic area codes in Thailand are one digit in Bangkok and nearby provinces, and two digits in all other provinces. These are a few of the area codes of major cities in Thailand:
- Bangkok (2) – the capital of Thailand
- Chiang Mai (52)
- Chiang Rai (52)
- Chon Buri (38)
- Phuket (76)
- Phang Nga (76)
Telecom Operators in Thailand
Telecommunications in Thailand are very advanced and on par with other regional powers like Japan and China. The mobile phone network in Thailand is dominated by three major operators: AIS, DTAC, and TrueMove H. United World Telecom maintains strong partnerships with local carriers to provide virtual Thailand phone numbers with the same quality as major telecom operators in the nation.
While Thailand is already a very advanced society, the government announced the introduction of Digital Thailand, with the intent to propel the nation forward economically and socially, with stability, sustainability, and prosperity. The foundation of the initiative encourages Thai citizens to make good use of the digital economy through innovation, human capital, and data capabilities. The initiative will boost its overall communication infrastructure with the ultimate goal of driving significant economic growth and opportunities for foreign investors.
