How to Call the Dominican Republic from the U.S.

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

  • First dial 1 – the Dominican Republic country code.
  • Then the area code – 3 digits (809, 829 or 849).
  • Finally, the local phone number – 7 digits.

To call Dominican Republic, do you dial the 011 U.S. exit code required for international calls?

Some international numbers have a plus sign (+) or exit code (011) you must enter before the country code.
In this case, the Dominican Republic is part of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), so it’s not necessary to dial the 011 exit code required for most international calls.
