How to Call

Calling local numbers while in Latvia: Just dial the seven-digit number as it is, because area codes are incorporated into regular telephone numbers: XXX-XXXX; to call mobile phones, dial 9XX-XXXX or 6XX-XXXX. 
Calling to Latvia from abroad: Just dial the 371 Latvian code plus the number as it is—or, in other words, 371-XXX-XXXX. Calling a mobile phone, also dial 371-XXX-XXXX. 
Calling abroad from Latvia: To call the rest of the world simply dial 00, followed by the country code and number. The country code for Estonia is 372. The code for Lithuania is 370. 
Operators: to book over­seas calls, dial 115. Operators speak rudimentary English. 
If you need to make phone calls from a pay phone, you should purchase a Lattelekom phone card—available at newspaper kiosks, post offices and some stores. For international calls, buy an international phone card. You can also purchase pre­paid card for your mobile.
