Peru +51

Communication of 4.VIII.2010

The Ministerio de Transportes y Comunicaciones , Lima, announces the implementation, by Ministerial Resolution No 477-2009-MTC/03, of the Virtual Mobile Area, which is due to come into effect on 4 September 2010.

The Virtual Mobile Area is a single mobile area for the whole of Peru (national coverage), whereby the numbering of mobile services is henceforth considered to be "non-geographic", i.e. not associated with any given departamento . The effect of this is to do away, where mobile services are concerned, with numbering areas defined according to departamentos . Calls will therefore no longer be differentiated according to geographic considerations, i.e. according to whether they are local or national long-distance.

Application of the Virtual Mobile Area encompasses the following public telecommunication services:

1)          Mobile telephony

2)          Personal communications service (PCS)

3)          Automatic dialling (digital trunked) multiple channel service

4)          Mobile-satellite service.

At the international level:

Persons located in another country and wishing to place a call to a mobile telephone in Peru must take account of the following changes:

 

From another country to a mobile telephone in Peru

Old dialling arrangement

New dialling arrangement (as from 4 September 2010)

51 + city code + mobile telephone number

51 + mobile telephone number

 

In other words, callers will need to key in only the country code for Peru (51), followed by the nine-digit number of the called mobile telephone, for any region within Peru.

 

At the national level:

To call a mobile telephone from anywhere in Peru, from a fixed or mobile telephone or payphone, it will be necessary to key in only the nine-digit number of the called mobile telephone.

To place a call from a mobile to a fixed telephone, the caller will first key in “0”, followed by the city code and number of the fixed telephone in question.

 

From one mobile telephone to another
