Telephone in New Zealand

Telephone in New Zealand

New Zealand has a well developed and ubiquitous telephone system. The country's main phone company, Telecom, claims (as of 2009) to have about 4000 payphones in NZ which can be easily identified by their yellow and blue colours. All of them accept major credit cards and a variety of phonecards available from retailers. You may have to look hard for a payphone that accepts coins.
  • The country code is 64. New Zealand telephone numbers can be looked up online at .
  • The emergency telephone number from all telephones is 111 (you may need to use a prefix to get an outside line from business systems, usually 1). An emergency services call is normally answered with a voice request for Police, Fire or Ambulance, respond as appropriate and you will then be switched to the requested service. (Other common international emergency numbers like 112, 911 and 999 may also work, but do not rely on it)
