The Latvian telephone numbering plan is a telephone number assigning system used in Latvia. All the numbers consist of 8 digits with exceptions for special services. The assigning process is controlled by the Electronic Communications Office (Latvian: VAS "Elektroniskie sakari") and regulated by the Public Utilities Commission (Latvian: Sabiedrisko pakalpojumu regulēšanas komisija).[2]


The Latvian SSR had the +7 013 area code. The original format was 8 (013) xxx xxxx. In 1993, Latvia switched to the +371 code. The plan remained relatively the same until 2008, when a 6 was prepended to all landlines.

Example number in Riga:

  • pre-1993: 8 (013) 678 9012
  • 1993-2008: 678 9012
  • 2008-present: 6678 9012

Mobile telephones

  • 2xх xx xxx—mobile phones.

Geographic numbering

  • 5 xx xxxxx, 6 xx xxxxx, 7 xx xxxxx—landlines and other location-based numbers.

The 5-series is currently only reserved for future use. The 6-series is generally used for landlines and the 7-series is used with payphones throughout the country.
