Phone Service Information

Local calls
Landline numbers have six digits, and cellphones have seven digits. Local numbers do not require a prefix or a city code.
If you are calling from a landline, simply dial the last 6 digits of the phone number.

If you are using a cell phone, you must either dial 8 or +7 before the number. Example 8 701 999 4321 or +7 701 999 4321 (Kazakhstan still uses the same country code as Russia, +7, although this is supposed to change by 2020. So, on a mobile phone, you can also use +7 instead of "8" and likewise you may see either on your phone's caller ID screen.)

Here is what this all looks like:

>Landline to a landline: six digit number

>Landline to a cellphone: 8 + three digit cellphone carrier code + seven digit number

>Cellphone to a landline: 8 + city code (7172 in Astana) + six digit number

>Cellphone to a cellphone: 8 + three digit cellphone carrier code + seven digit number

International Calls
Dial for international access (8 10) + the country code + area/region code + local telephone number.

Calling Kazakhstan from abroad
Dial code for international access + Kazakhstan's country code (7) + Kazakhstan city code + Kazakhstan local phone number

Cell phones

Astana cell companies operate on a pre-paid system. A SIM card can be purchased providing a local cell number. As credit runs out, it can be replenished by purchasing more via electronic dispensers located throughout the city.
