HA NOI (VNS) — Viet Nam will change the area codes of 59 provinces and cities on March 1 following a circular issued last December by the Ministry of Information and Communications.

The new area code of Ha Noi will be 24 instead of 4. HCM City's area code will be 28 instead of 8. The new area codes of other localities can be seen in the table below.

Four northern provinces (Phu Tho, Vinh Phuc, Hoa Binh and Ha Giang) will not have new area codes.

In the meantime, all mobile phone numbers will consist of 10 digits. Currently, some are 11 digits.

The changes aim to ensure consistency in area codes and mobile phone numbers throughout the country, according to the ministry. There are nearly 7 million telephone subscribers and over 120 million mobile subscribers nationwide. — VNS
