Telephone numbers in Swaziland

Swaziland does not have area codes. From 1st April 2010 (mobile numbers) and 1st February 2011 (fixed numbers) all subscriber numbers have 8 digits when called from abroad. This was achieved through adding a 2 in front of 7-digit fixed-line numbers and 7 in front of 7-digit mobile numbers.

Tables of telephone number information/formats can be acquired – see http://www.grcdi.nl/telephone.htm External
