Technical info on Albanian phone numbers
- Albania phone numbers, like most phone numbers around the world, follow a specific format designated by the International Telecommunication Union (ITU) in the E.164 recommendation. Albania is part of the country code 355, which is assigned to the nation as part of the ITU's global numbering plan.
- Country code: +355 (or 00355 for international dialing)
- Area code: 2-4 digits
- Local number: 4-6 digits
- The area code and local number combined typically have 8 digits in total. The area code represents a specific geographic region or mobile network, while the local number identifies the subscriber within that area.
- Area codes in Albania:
- Tirana (capital city): 4
- Other major cities and regions: 2-3 digits (e.g., 22 for Shkodër, 32 for Elbasan)
- Mobile operators: 2-3 digits (e.g., 66 or 67 for Vodafone, 68 or 69 for Telekom Albania)
- To dial an Albanian phone number from within the country, you can simply dial the area code followed by the local number.
- When calling from outside Albania, you must first dial the international dialing prefix for the country you're calling from (e.g., 00 for most European countries, 011 for the US and Canada), then the Albanian country code (+355), and finally the area code and local number.
- For example, to call a number in Tirana from the United States, you would dial:
- International dialing prefix: 011
- Country code: 355
- Area code: 4
- Local number: XXXXXXX
- The complete dialing sequence would be: 011 355 4 XXXXXXX.
The history of Albanian phone numbers
- Early developments (1912-1944): Albania declared independence from the Ottoman Empire in 1912. During the initial years, the telephone system was rudimentary, with phone lines limited to a few major cities like Tirana, Shkodra, and Vlora. The phone numbers were usually short and varied from two to four digits.
- Communist era (1944-1991): After World War II, the Communist regime led by Enver Hoxha nationalized the telecommunication sector. The government expanded the telephone network and introduced a more structured numbering system. Phone numbers were usually five to six digits long, with area codes assigned to different regions.
- Post-Communist period (1991-2008): With the fall of Communism in the early 1990s, Albania underwent significant changes in its telecommunication sector. The government liberalized the market and allowed private companies to enter the industry. As a result, the number of phone lines increased rapidly, and the existing numbering system was soon deemed insufficient.
- Introduction of the new numbering plan (2008): In response to the growing demand for phone numbers, the Albanian Telecommunication Regulatory Authority (AKEP) introduced a new numbering plan in 2008. The plan expanded phone numbers from six to eight digits (not including the country code) and introduced a new area code system. Landline numbers started with a "4" followed by the area code and then the subscriber number. Mobile numbers, on the other hand, began with a "6" or "7" followed by the mobile network operator code and the subscriber number.
- Ongoing developments: Since the introduction of the new numbering plan in 2008, the telecommunication sector in Albania has continued to evolve. The market has seen the entrance of new mobile network operators and the expansion of services like broadband internet and Voice over IP (VoIP). To accommodate these changes and ensure the numbering system remains efficient, AKEP may introduce further modifications in the future.
