If you’re travelling or have recently moved to Hong Kong, here are the must-know contact numbers for emergencies, calling a taxi, reporting an item lost on public transit, foreign embassies, as well as organizations/associations to start growing your community. The Hong Kong area code is +852, but you can generally just dial the 8-digit phone number.

Tips: If you want to keep your caller ID hidden from the person you’re calling, dial 133 first. Your call will show up on the receiver’s phone as “No Caller ID.”

To make overseas calls, dial 001 first. Note that you may have to set up your temporary SIM card/phone plan’s IDD service (International Direct Dialing) before being able to make a long distance call.
