Technical info on Peru phone numbers

  • Peru phone numbers follow the International Telecommunication Union's E.164 standard, which is the international public telecommunication numbering plan.
  • Country Code: The country code for Peru is +51. This code is used to dial into the country from abroad. When calling from outside of Peru, you will need to dial the exit code of your country, followed by the +51 country code, and then the local phone number.
  • Geographic Area Codes: Peru has various geographic area codes assigned to different regions or cities. These area codes are usually 1 or 2 digits long and are placed after the country code. Some examples include:
  • Lima: 1
  • Arequipa: 54
  • Trujillo: 44
  • Chiclayo: 74
  • Local Phone Numbers: Local phone numbers in Peru typically consist of 6 or 7 digits. In some regions, the length of the local number may vary. The local number is placed after the area code when dialing within Peru.
  • Mobile Numbers: Mobile numbers in Peru also have specific codes assigned to different mobile operators. These codes, usually 3 digits long, are placed after the country code when dialing. Mobile phone numbers typically have a total length of 9 digits, including the mobile code. Some examples of mobile codes include:
  • Claro: 9xx
  • Movistar: 9xx
  • Entel: 9xx
  • Bitel: 9xx
  • Dialing Format: When calling a Peruvian phone number, you will need to use the following format depending on whether you're calling a landline or a mobile phone:
  • Landline:
  • From within Peru: (Area Code) + Local Number
  • From abroad: +51 + (Area Code) + Local Number
  • Mobile:
  • From within Peru: 9xx + Local Number
  • From abroad: +51 + 9xx + Local Number

The history behind Peruvian phone numbers

  • Introduction of the telephone: The telephone was first introduced in Peru in the late 19th century. Initially, telephones were a luxury item, with only a few lines installed in the capital city, Lima, and other major urban centers.
  • Manual exchanges: Early telephone systems in Peru used manual exchanges, where operators connected calls by manually plugging in cables to route the call to the desired destination. These manual systems were limited in their capacity, and telephone numbers were short, usually two or three digits.
  • Automatic exchanges: In the early 20th century, as the demand for telephone service grew, manual exchanges were replaced by automatic systems. This change allowed for more efficient and faster call routing, and led to the expansion of the telephone network throughout the country.
  • Introduction of area codes: As the telephone network expanded, area codes were introduced to better organize the system and identify the location of the call. These area codes, known as "indicativos" in Peru, are usually two or three digits and are followed by the local telephone number. For example, Lima has the area code 1.
  • Expansion of telephone numbers: Over time, as the population of Peru grew and the demand for telephone service increased, the length of phone numbers also expanded. By the early 21st century, Peru had transitioned to a system with 7-digit local phone numbers, with some cities requiring an area code as well.
  • Introduction of mobile phone numbers: The widespread adoption of mobile phones in Peru necessitated the creation of a separate numbering system for mobile numbers. These numbers generally start with a 9 and are followed by an 8-digit number. Mobile phone numbers are not tied to a specific geographic location like landline numbers.
  • International dialing: To make international calls to and from Peru, the country uses the international dialing code +51. This code, along with the relevant area code and local number, allows callers to reach their desired destination from anywhere in the world.
