How to Call Nigeria from the U.S.

Need to call Nigeria from the United States?

Keeping in touch with relatives overseas once meant high rates and confusing calling criteria. Now Vonage makes calling Nigeria easier than ever before. With the Vonage World® plan you can call Nigeria with low per-minutes rates, all while enjoying unlimited1 calling to landlines in 60 countries and mobiles in 10 countries

To call Nigeria from the U.S., just follow these simple dialing directions:

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 234, the country code for Nigeria.
  • Then dial the area code (1–2 digits — please see a sample calling code list below).
  • Finally dial the phone number (5–7 digits).

Have family in Nigeria who often call the U.S.?

Here’s an idea: Why not give Vonage World® to your friends or family in Nigeria? It’s easy… just sign up for a Vonage World® account for them and ship them the Vonage Box™*. That way they can make unlimited1 calls to landlines and mobiles in the U.S. Imagine your brother in Lagos having the same U.S. area code as you. You and anyone in the U.S. can reach him on a U.S. number, rather than paying international rates to call Nigeria. And if you both have Vonage, calls between you are included at no additional charge! Vonage works anywhere there’s a high-speed Internet connection.
