What emergency number can I call while roaming overseas?
112 (one-one-two) is the standard emergency telephone number worldwide.
This means 112 will work even when the local emergency number is different.
For example: 911 for North America or 000 for Australia.
What else should I know about 112?
In countries where 112 is the standard emergency number, it can also be called from any fixed telephones including payphones.
112 is available for users with restricted sim cards (blocked, roaming not active) or expired SIMs.
112 is not available if you do not have a SIM card in your mobile phone.
Some international emergency call centres will make use of interpretation services to deal with calls in foreign languages.
Can I dial 000 while in another country?
No. 000 is only a valid emergency number within Australia.
