How to make a phone call while you’re in Colombia

When you travel, usually you don’t have a sim card (chip) from any company from the country where you go; besides, sometimes get access to internet can be a problem therefore, for some people, communicate with relatives or friends at home could be a concern.

Fortunately here at Bogotá pass, will show you how to communicate with someone else in Colombia and other countries as well.

First of all remember that country’s phone code is +57

Most of phone numbers here in Colombia have seven numbers excluding the area code. The area code like in other countries, determinate the city or a specific area.

Here in Colombia these are the most important area codes:

Bogotá (1)
Medellin (4)
Cartagena (5)
Barranquilla (5)
Cali (2)
Salento (Quindio) (6)
Ibagué (8)
Villa de Leyva (8)
Santa Marta (5)
San Andrés (8)

Other area codes

So, if you would like to communicate for instance with us from other country please dial: +57(country code) + (1) Bogotá area code + 7443897 (Bogotá pass phone number)

On the other hand the mobile phones have ten numbers and it is presented like this: (3xx) mobile company code +(1234567) phone number.

Therefore, if you want to give us a call to our mobile from other country please dial: +57 (321) 4820537.

Quite different is the dial phone call technique when you have a sim card (chip) from any company available in Colombia (Movistar, Claro, Tigo).

Here some dial situations:

  • Mobile to traditional phone line. Please dial: (03) + (x) area code + (1234567) phone number
  • Traditional phone line to mobile. Please dial: (03) + (3xx) mobile company code + (1234567) phone number
  • Traditional phone line to another one (in the same area) Please dial: 1234567 (phone number directly)
  • Traditional phone line to another one (in other city or area) Please dial: (07 or 09, or 05) phone company code + (X) area code + (1234567) phone number.

Besides in the different cities on the streets and plazas you can find some peddlers who provide the phone call service. You can recognize them because they have a lot of phones added with a little chain and have a sign with the message “Minutos” (see the footage above). Each minute’s price is added to the sign too, therefore if you want to save money please locate the people which have a sign with a message like “Minutos a $200 or $250″
