    A change in Georgia's numbering plan was announced by the Georgian National Communications Commission. The change will be implemented on June 4, 2011 when all fixed and mobile phone numbers will become 9 digit (currently Georgian phone numbers are 8 digit).

    Fixed numbers

    Georgia landlines (fixed numbers) will be added digit 2 (two) between the area code and local number. Examples:
    -landline from Tbilisi, currently of the format 32 ??? ??? (8 digits) becomes 32 2??? ??? on June the 4th, 2011;
    -landline from Batumi, currently 422 ?? ??? becomes 422 2?? ???;
    -and so on...

    There is one exception to the above: the Rustavi region, with current area code 34 will be assigned area code 341 on June 4. Moreover, all former Rustavi local numbers starting with digit 1 (1?? ???) will become: 2?? ??? (digit one is replaced by digit two).

    Mobile phone numbers

    The vast majority of cellular numbers are added digit 5 (five) in the very beginning. Currently, mobile numbers are 8 digit and, with the addition of the extra digit they will become 9 digit. Examples:
    -cell phone numbers that currently have this format 58 ??? ??? become 558 ??? ???;
    -cell numbers of the format 68 ??? ??? become 568 ??? ???
    -and so on...

    There is one exception: cell phone numbers of the format 90 ??? ??? are added digit 7 (seven) becoming 790 ??? ???.

    Trunk code and International IDD/Exit code

    With this national renumbering, Georgia's national trunk code formerly 8 (eight) becomes 0 (zero). Also, the new code for dialing internationally from Georgia is now 00 (used to be 8 Pause 10).

    Important!

    The above described change in Georgia's numbering system follows a previous change to landline area codes implemented in April, 2011 when the following geographic area codes were changed:

    • Area code 222 became 422 in April, 2011
    • 34 >>> 341

    • 315 >>> 415
    • 316 >>> 416

    • 318 >>> 418
    • 331 >>> 431
    • 332 >>> 432
    • 333 >>> 433
    • 335 >>> 435
