How to Call Kenya from the U.S.

Making calls to Kenya from the U.S. is now far easier than ever before.

If you’re still stuck though, take a look at our helpful “How To Call Kenya” guide below.

To call Kenya from the U.S., just follow these basic dialing instructions:

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 254, the country code for Kenya.
  • Then dial the 2-digit area code (see sample calling code list below) and finally the 5- to 7-digit phone number.
  • Note: If you’re dialing to a cell phone in Kenya, you must press 7 before the area code, so the dialing format should look like this: 011 + 254 + 7?? ??? ???
