Making international calls is different from traditional local calls. To call friends and family in Eritrea, you will need to dial your current country code, then the Eritrea country code, Local area code in Eritrea, and then the phone number you wish to reach.
For example, if you are making a call from the United States to Eritrea and you want to call someone in Eritrea with the phone number 08035555555;
You will dial the United States country code, 011 and then the Eritrea country code plus 8035555555. Alternatively, you can replace the country exit code (011) with (+).
