Calling the Philippines Long Distance
The Philippines is 8 hours ahead of Greenwich Mean Time and 13 hours ahead of Eastern Standard Time in the United States; however, the Philippines does not participate in Daylight Saving Time. So, during Daylight Saving Time in the U.S., the Philippines is only 12 hours ahead of the eastern U.S.
When calling the Philippines internationally, begin with the country calling code, 63. Now dial an area code of 1-4 digits and a local subscriber number of 5-7 digits. For domestic long distance calls, you do not need the country code, but be sure to dial a 0 before you dial the area code. Not surprisingly, local calls are the easiest: simply dial the 5-7-digit subscriber number. Find a full list of Philippines city codes here
