    On September 4, 2010 the Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones Peru announced a simplified version of its calling plan for mobile numbers in this country. Previously, in order to dial to a mobile number in Peru one had to also enter the area code for the city/town called. Starting September 4 area codes are no longer needed for dialing Peru cell numbers, resulting in a unique numbering format for all Peruvian cell phones: 9?? ??? ???. Also, cell numbers lose the trunk code (zero) when dialed within Peru.

    Here are some sample dialing instructions:

    -Calls from US to Peru mobile: 011 + 51 + 9?? ??? ??? (previously 011 + 51 + area code + 9?? ??? ???)
    -More specific: calls from US to Lima cell phones (Lima has area code 1): 011 51 9?? ??? ??? (previously 011 51 1 9?? ??? ???) – so you drop the area code
    -Calls from Peru fixed/mobile to Peru Mobile: 9?? ??? ??? (previously 0 + area code + 9?? ??? ???)

    The page below has
    all the info needed to dial Peru.
