1 In Australia, 112 is mostly used when away from population centers. Callers dialing 112 must specify that they are in Australia and give their location.

2 Papua New Guinea should be getting one number for all services in the near future.

When roaming with a GSM telephone in the European Union, use 112 for emergency services.

The world is a volatile place. Many of the countries listed here have gone through considerable changes in the past couple of years (Hong Kong, for example, was returned to China, and the European Union (EU) has standardized much of Europe.) In addition, some countries are in the process of changing their systems to one number for all emergency services. This list is accurate to the best of our knowledge. Many of the EU countries are retaining, at least for now, their old emergency numbers even as they standardize on the new 112, and are listed here if still in operation.

Every effort has been made to confirm the accuracy of these numbers, but mistakes do happen. Please try to confirm your information before travelling, and let us know if you find any inaccuracies.

Any updates, corrections, additions, filling in gaps, etc., would be greatly appreciated. Please send information here.
