More Information

( 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.
