International Fax Number Format

It's important to double check that the international fax number format is correct. The person waiting to receive the international fax may not understand how to dial from your country, or send from your device. First, understand the pieces of the international fax number you were given.

Which numbers are the dial out code, international call prefix, country code, and the local fax number. Second, compare those pieces to the international fax number format expected by your service provider. Doing so will save you countless minutes if not hours while faxing international numbers
