Telephone numbers in Venezuela
The Venezuelan Numbering Plan is an open telephone numbering plan with three-digit area codes and seven-digit telephone numbers that directs telephone calls to particular regions on a public switched telephone network (PSTN) or to a mobile telephone network, where they are further routed by the local network. The last revision of the current numbering plan is September 21, 2000.

Other area codesEdit
- Codes starting with 1XX specify a particular carrier to route a call to (XX denotes the carrier code).
- Codes starting with 5 are region-free and are treated as local calls wherever the calling party is dialing from (within Venezuela only).
- Codes starting with 8 are toll-free numbers.
- Codes starting with 9 are assigned to premium rate services.
- Despite being specified in the last revision of the Venezuelan numbering plan, no carrier has implemented this type of service yet.
