Fax Number

First, the international country code is entered, then the fax number.

It is important to double check to ensure that the fax number you have been given does not replicate either the international dialing code or the country code of the location you are sending. Some people will send this information (or the wrong international prefix) when sending fax numbers internationally, and can sometimes confuse a transmission.

Can you fax documents internationally

Yes, when you send an international fax you can attach and send any type of document, the same as when you send a fax to a local number. With the eComfax Online Fax solution, you can send documents in files: Microsoft Office, txt, pdf, tif, jpeg, html, png, and many others.
