Make no mistake: we’ll be doing a lot of business with China now and in the future!
To send a fax to China from the U.S., dial the number like this:
Area codes are usually 2 – 4 digits and phone numbers are usually 6 – 8 digits.
Note: Some subjects may be considered “sensitive” and are not suitable for faxing to China. Be careful what you send!
Here are some popular area codes for China:
( 86 ) is the country code for China and ( 011 ) is the international prefix number from America. Add a “9” if you normally do to access a line outside of your company’s phone switch.
It will usually be necessary to insert a pause in your dialing sequence after the “86” to allow the phone network time to connect you to an exchange. This differs by make of machine, but may be a comma or “#” sign inserted into the number.
Sending a fax to China can be very expensive from a regular phone line — particularly if you have to try the connection more than once.
A better option is to sign up for a fax to email service such as Efax or myfax. These services allow you to send unlimited international faxes to China simply through your regular email for cheaper than a single long distance phone call to Asia.
