Jamaica Area Code 658

Published: September 06, 2017

The Caribbean island country of Jamaica uses the North American Numbering Plan and its area code within the NANP is 876. On September 15, 2016 a new area code was announced by Jamaica's telecom regulator as a relief method for existing 876 area code. Starting next year in November the new 658 area code will also cover the entire island and, as a result 10 digit dialing will be used for all local calls.

Key dates

  • May 31, 2018 - start of permissive 7/10 digit dialing period (all telephone calls on the island may be dialed using either 7 or 10 digits)
  • October 30, 2018 - 10 digit dialing becomes mandatory for all calls within Jamaica
  • November 30, 2018 - new area code 658 enters service
