68 Country Code

68 Country Code: Which Country Uses +68

Just like the 69 telephoning code, there is no such thing as the 68 country code; hence, which country uses +68? Calls received from a foreign number whose country code starts with 0068 or +68 will originate from one of the countries listed below:

  • Country code: +680
    Country: Palau
  • Country code: +681
    Country: Wallis and Futuna
  • Country code: +682
    Country: Cook Islands
  • Country code: +683
    Country: Niue
  • Country code: +685
    Country: Samoa
  • Country code: +686
    Country: Kiribati
  • Country code: +687
    Country: New Caledonia
  • Country code: +688
    Country: Tuvalu
  • Country code: +689
    Country: French Polynesia

The Meaning Of The Plus +

The meaning of the plus sign there is telling you to insert your international access prefix here. From a GSM mobile phone, you can enter the number in full international format, starting with the plus sign. The most common prefix is 00, but North America (USA, Canada, etc.) uses 011, Japan uses 010, Australia uses 0011, and many other countries use different prefixes.

Area Codes

As already mentioned, +68 is not an international area code and therefore it is not possible to call any country by dialing with this code. Therefore, if you wish to call an international phone the first thing to do is to know the corresponding country code, add the area code (if necessary) and the phone number you wish to call.

Below are the different area codes there are in the world:

The nine world zones are generally organized geographically, with exceptions for political and historical alignment.

  • Zone 1 uses an integrated numbering plan; four digits (1xxx) determine the area served in Canada, the United States and its territories, and much of the Caribbean.
  • Zone 2 uses two 2-digit codes (20, 27) and eight sets of 3-digit codes (21x–26x, 28x, 29x), mostly to serve Africa, but also Aruba, Faroe Islands, Greenland and British Indian Ocean Territory.
  • Zones 3 and 4 use sixteen 2-digit codes (30–34, 36, 39–41, 43–49) and four sets of 3-digit codes (35x, 37x, 38x, 42x) to serve Europe.
  • Zone 5 uses eight 2-digit codes (51–58) and two sets of 3-digit codes (50x, 59x) to serve South and Central America.
  • Zone 6 uses seven 2-digit codes (60–66) and three sets of 3-digit codes (67x–69x) to serve Southeast Asia and Oceania.
  • Zone 7 uses an integrated numbering plan; two digits (7x) determine the area served: Russia or Kazakhstan.
  • Zone 8 uses four 2-digit codes (81, 82, 84, 86) and four sets of 3-digit codes (80x, 85x, 87x, 88x) to serve East Asia, South Asia and special services. 83x and 89x are unallocated.
  • Zone 9 uses seven 2-digit codes (90–95, 98) and three sets of 3-digit codes (96x, 97x, 99x) to serve the Middle East, West Asia, Central Asia, parts of South Asia and Eastern Europe.
