On February 17, 2008, Kosovo formally declared independence. International Telecommunication Union (ITU) on December 15, 2016 assigned and published in the operational bulletin No.1114 international codes for Kosovo:

-E.164 Code (as defined in the ITU-T recommendation E.164): 383
-E.212 Code (as defined in the ITU-T Recommendation E.212): 221
-Q.708 Signaling Area/Network Code (SANC): 7-2014.

ARKEP(Regulatory Authority of Electronic and Postal Communications ), as a sole administrator of the Country Code, in close cooperation with the relevant stakeholders including ITU, is in the process of implementing these codes and introducing the important mechanisms for ensuring effective competition, including Number Portability. Furthermore, in line with the ITU Recommendations E.212 and Q.708, ARKEP has assigned the Mobile Network Codes (MNC) and International Signaling Point Codes (ISPC) to operators (mobile and fixed) that operate in Kosovo.

Taking into consideration the importance of implementing the above mentioned codes for the electronic communication sector and challenges of the process itself (replacement of SiM cards, new roaming agreements, etc.), after consultation with operators, ARKEP has approved the Migration Plan including the activities and timelines, which are summarized as follows:

1)      Until 01 of June 2018, the entire process of the implementation of the new code E.164: +383 should be concluded. After this date all other existing codes (currently +377, +381 and +386) that are used by fixed and mobile telephony networks should no longer be active in Kosovo (cannot be able to originate and terminate international traffic in Kosovo).

2)      By 31 December 2018, the implementation of MCC: 221 must be fully completed.

With the facts mentioned above and many users of your services, it would be great to see Kosovo ITU phone codes listed in your phone numbers services for your users.
