"118 72 12 34" matches the format of "AAA SS SS SS"

Most phone numbers in Ethiopia are written in the following formats:

   Prefix: long distance or international
   --------------------------------------
   |   Carrier or area code 
   |   --------------------
   |   |   Subscriber number
   |   |   -----------------
   v   v   v
   0   AAA SS SS SS     - Local format
  +251 AAA SS SS SS     - International format

Most telephone numbers in Ethiopia have 9 digits and are written in the format of "AAA SS SS SS". Here are some examples: 118 72 12 34; 912 11 87 95.

When dialing locally inside Ethiopia, the long distance prefix of "0" is required. So the format becomes "0 AAA SS SS SS".

When dialing from outside of Ethiopia, the international dial-in prefix "+251" is required. So the format becomes "+251 AAA SS SS SS".

When dialing from Ethiopia to other countries, the international dail-out prefix "+" or "00" required.

To validate phone number formats for other countries or regions, see our Generic Phone Number Format Validator.
