How to Call Romania from the U.S.

Making calls to Romania 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 Romania” guide below.

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

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 40, the country code for Romania.
  • Then dial the area code — 2 digits for the capital Bucharest, and 3 digits for all other areas.
  • Finally, dial the 6-to 7-digit phone number.

Note: The area code and phone number will always total 9 digits.

International calls that are blocked

Several service providers allow users to block international calling or even use “blocked” as a default. Double check this setting. This does not apply to Vonage World®.

Cell numbers that don’t have area codes

Area codes shouldn’t be added to international cell phone numbers, and further, in most countries, cell phone numbers have a dedicated starting digit not used for landlines.

No trunk code

If you’re dialing a number starting with zero, drop that first digit. The zero is referred to as a “trunk code” and is used only when calling within certain countries.

Internet phone (VoIP) connections

A few VoIP providers let you forego dialing the 011 exit code before making an international call. If that feature is turned on, however, leave out the 011 U.S. code.
