According to ALLCITYCODES.COM, the area code of Iceland is +354. This code is used when making phone calls to Iceland from other countries. It is also used for international text messages sent to and from Iceland. The area code of Iceland is divided into two regions, each with its own unique two-digit prefix. These prefixes are used in combination with the seven-digit local numbers to make a nine-digit phone number. For example, if you wanted to call someone in Reykjavik, the area code would be 5 followed by a seven-digit local number. Different areas may have different calling plans, so it’s important to check with your service provider before making an international call. In addition to providing access to landlines, the area code of Iceland can also be used for mobile phones. Mobile numbers start with a three-digit prefix followed by a six-digit number. For example, if you wanted to call someone in Reykjavik on their mobile phone, the area code would be 354 followed by a six-digit local number. It’s important to note that some mobile networks require an additional two or three digits after the initial three digits of the prefix; again, it’s best to check with your service provider before making any international calls or sending texts from abroad. To make an international call from within Iceland, dial 00 followed by the country code and then the full nine or 10 digit phone number you wish to reach; for example, 001 6151234567 for a call to Nashville in Tennessee (country 1 and city 615). When calling within Iceland itself there is no need for an area or country code – simply dial the seven or eight digit local number without any preceding zeros or symbols. Iceland is a parliamentary representative democratic republic with a multi-party system. The President of Iceland, currently Guðni Th.
