How to Fax GermanySending a fax to Germany from the U.S. on a traditional facsimile machine is easy! Just enter the number as follows:

011-49-[city code]-[fax number in Germany]

( 49 ) is the country code for Germany and ( 011 ) is the international access number from the US.  Be sure to prefix everything with a “9” if you normally do to access a line outside of your company’s phone switch.

It may be necessary to insert a pause in your dialing sequence after the “011” 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.
