Public phones are widely available. Public phones in Taiwan are divided primarily into two types. Coin phones, being the first type, accept coins in NT$1, NT$5, and NT$10 denomination. Phone cards can be stored with designated value, and used all over Taiwan. The cards are sold at railway, bus stations or convenience stores. When making local calls, it is not necessary to dial the area code.


How to make an international call?

International calls can be made by dialling:

002 + country code + area code (leaving out “0” in front of the area code) + local number. Besides 002, one can also dial 019.
