International calls

To make international calls or call home from Uzbekistan, dial in this order: 8-10 + followed by your country code + phone number. For example, 8-10-44-34-574-5748.


For international calls to Uzbekistan, dial in this order: your code to use international line + 998 + city code + local number. For example, 00+998+71+231-2735.

The main post office is near Oloy Bazaar where you can make cheaper international calls. You may also buy cheap international call cards available throughout the city or in Paynet outlets.
