How can I call Nigeria from the USA?

You can call Nigeria directly from your cell phone or landline phone, but calling Nigeria can get very expensive when made directly trough your phone provider.

When you want to call Nigeria:

  • from the US or Canada: dial 011 (to make an international call) + 234 (Nigeria country code) + rest of the number
  • from Europe: dial +234 (Nigeria country code) + rest of the number 

Nigeria and most other countries in Africa are among the more expensive calling destinations in the world. You can save money by using an international call service like toolani.
By calling a local number in the USA, toolani will connect you to any phone number in Nigeria at a cheap rate and best call quality.
