Technical info on UAE phone numbers

In the United Arab Emirates (UAE), phone numbers follow a specific format. The country code for the UAE is +971, and phone numbers have nine digits. The first two digits of the phone number indicate the mobile network operator, while the remaining seven digits are unique to each individual number.

Landline numbers in the UAE also have nine digits, but they do not have a specific area code. To call a mobile or landline number in the UAE from outside the country, the caller must first dial the international access code for their country, followed by the UAE country code and then the nine-digit phone number.
