Calling Jamaica Long Distance
Jamaica is a beautiful, relatively small island nation with only one time zone. That time zone, Jamaica Standard Time, is equivalent to Eastern Standard Time (EST) in the United States. When contacting Jamaica by phone, remember that unlike the U.S., Jamaica does not participate in Daylight Saving Time. So, from early April through late October, Jamaica is 1 hour behind EST.
When calling Jamaica long distance, begin with the country code 876. Unlike larger countries, Jamaica has no area codes. So, for a call within Jamaica, simply dial the local subscriber number, which always has 7 digits. For international calls, always dial the country code before the subscriber number.
