country code (CC)

The country code ( CC) is the international code for a specific country. For international telephone numbers, two zeros (00) are dialed before the country code, this is the international traffic prefix(VAZ). The country code is followed by the area code(ONKz), the subscriber number( SN) and possibly a number for the extension.

If you are within a country network, you do not need to dial the traffic separation code and the country code. The situation is different when calling abroad or from abroad, in which case the country code for Germany must be dialed after the international traffic access code (00). This is different for each country and can have one, two or three digits.
