In the Turkish Republic of Northern Cyprus (TRNC), the Turkish numbering plan is in use. Hence the international country code for Northern Cyprus is also +90. 392 is the area code of all landlines. Mobile Operators, Kuzey Kibris Turkcell and KKTC Telsim use 533 and 542 area codes respectively.

For calls from the Republic of Cyprus to Northern Cyprus, the code 0139 followed by the 7-digit subscriber number is used, which are charged at local call rates. 0139 is still used for direct calls to Northern Cyprus even after the numbering plan change of December 2001.
