NOTE: The telephone and fax numbers include country and city/ area codes (in parentheses). The city/ area codes provided are those you use when calling from within the country where the mission is located. In some cases, you will have to use a different city/ area code if you are calling from outside the country. If you are unable to contact the mission, you should verify the codes with your telephone operator. When calling from one country to another, you must dial the local code for international calls before the specific country and city/ area codes of the number you wish to reach.

Canada Direct service is offered by Canada’s major telecommunications companies in association with Teleglobe Canada. On its international network, Teleglobe carries calls from more than 130 countries where Canada Direct service is available. The symbol indicates that Canada Direct service is available from that country. See more information at
