The Kingdom of Saudi Arabia has one of the most efficient and reliable telephone services in the world. There is direct dialling to virtually every country in the world.
The country code for dialling Saudi Arabia from abroad is 966 followed by the city code and the phone number.
For example, to call a number in Riyadh from abroad, first dial the international access code, then 966 (for Saudi Arabia), then 1 (for Riyadh -- you only need to use the leading 0 of the city code when dialling from within the Kingdom), and then the seven-digit number.
