How to Call Tanzania from the U.S.

Are you getting tense every time you need to call Tanzania because of the difficulty with international codes and calling rules?

Are calling cards to Tanzania driving you simply nuts? Read our “How to Call Tanzania” guide below before you go off the deep end.

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

  • First dial 011, the U.S. exit code.
  • Next dial 255, the Tanzania country code.
  • Then dial the 2-digit area code (check out the sample calling code list below), followed by the 7-digit phone number.
  • So calling Tanzania from the U.S. will look like this: 011 + 255 + XX + XXX XXXX

Vonage has plenty of great plans but for cheap calls to Tanzania your best solution would be Vonage World®.

Your favorite people in Tanzania can now call you as frequently as you both want!

If you give your best friend in Mbeya the gift of Vonage World you’ll be sharing your area code with him or her and the two of you can connect for free! You both will need to have Vonage World accounts, so each one of you will receive a Vonage Box™.¹ We deliver both boxes to you (delivery, activation and equipment cost nothing!), and you ship one of them off to your friends. Then, since you both will have the same area code, calls from Tanzania to people other than the two of you are treated as simple domestic calls.

So to review:

  1. Sign yourself and your buddy up for Vonage World.
  2. Receive 2 Vonage Boxes¹.
  3. Ship him or her one.
  4. Call each other for free!

The cheapest call to Tanzania you can make is through Vonage, and if you hurry you can save on a temporary Vonage World introductory offer. Get going and get calling!
