Telephone numbers in Albania

List of area codes in Albania.

Albania Country Code : +355
Albania International Call Prefix : 00
0 - For domestic calls (within the country), 0 must be dialed before the area code. The prefix for international calls from Albania is 00 (e.g. for an United States number 00 1 ... should be dialed). Below is an explanation when dialing a Tirana number:

2xxx xxx (from within Tirana)
04 2xxx xxx (from within Albania)
+355 4 2xxx xxx (from outside Albania)
History - Albania has the lowest rate of telephone use per capita in Europe with roughly 10 lines per 100 people as of 2008 ITU statistics. As a result, cellular phone use is very common throughout the country. The numbering plan has constantly evolved during the last 30 years. Tirana has passed to a seven digit plan as of 2008 from a four digit plan in the communist period by gradually adding one digit.
New Numbering Plan and Addition of Digit "2" - As of March 2008, a new numbering plan was introduced in an effort to improve the quality of the service and increase fixed phone use in Albania. The old plan stayed in effect in parallel to the new until 15 September 2008.

The new numbering plan introduces a new digit, represented by the number 2 that is put in front of local telephone numbers country-wide. For example, to dial a Tirana number with the old plan, it would have looked like XXX XXX . With the new plan, the digit 2 is added to form 2XXX XXX . The old plan is defunct and not longer in operation.

Additionally, changes include the replacement of the Municipality of Laç's calling code with the new 53 code.
