Understanding Thai phone number formatting

Thai mobile phone numbers are currently 10 digits starting with an 08. As of July 2011, mobile numbers can start with 09 As of late 2014, mobile numbers can start with 06.

  • Dialing a mobile number with in Thailand (10 digits):   08-1234-5678
  • Dialing a land line number with in Thailand (9-10 digits):  02-1234-5678 or 043-213456
  • Dialing a Thai number from outside Thailand on a mobile phone (remove the 0 and add the country code):  +668-1234-5678
  • Dialing a Thai number from outside Thailand alternate formats:  00668-1234-5678
  • Thailand country code is:  66
  • The prefix for all mobile phones is:  08, 09 or 06
  • The prefix for all land lines is:  0 + local code


Tip:  When entering a Thai mobile number in your mobile phone, always start it with +668 or +669 or +666 and remove the leading “0″. (Enter +668-1234-1234 rather than 08-1234-1234)   This assures that when roaming in any country, you can dial the number and it will be understood in any country.

    We are making some changes, looks like you found one. Getting it fixed…

  • Aaron Getting

    Hmmm, found a glitch, surprised nobody else has. I needed to enter 09 so i erased the 08 entered the number with all ten digits and when I hit enter it said I must enter a ten digit number beginning with 08 or 09.  I tried again to make sure I typed it correctly.  

  • Kenneth Swedin

    Why the answer is after 21hours?

  • Bryan

    That is correct.

  • Ben

    Isn’t the 02 prefix for landlines in the Bangkok area only?
