Sint Maarten New Telephone Country Area Code

Monday, October 10 2011, marks country Sint Maarten's first birthday. It came into being as an autonomous country within the Dutch Kingdom on 10-10-10.

Sint Maarten & Saint Martin

A new telephone country code went into effect on September 30th. The country's new dialing code is 1-721. The old 599 number will go out of service on September 30, 2012.

To call Dutch St Maarten from the USA, for example, dial:
  • New prefix: 1 721 + seven digit telephone number
  • Old prefix: 011 599 + seven digit telephone number
To call the FRENCH side, you need a different code... bien sûr !

So it goes...
