||The Latviannumbering plan is a closed telephone numbering plan. Subscribers' numbers are all a standard length of 8 digits and are used for all calls, even in the same area. Phone numbering in Latvia is controlled by the Public Utilities Commission and Electronic Communications Office.
||Under the current numbering plan in Latvia, all phone numbers are 8 digits long, starting with a 2 or 3 digit, except for smaller towns, which have 4 digits, city code for landlines. For all calls, local and national, all 8 digits must be dialed, except for emergency or other special short numbers.
||International call prefix: 00
||112 - main
||01 - fire department
||02 - police
||03 - emergency medical service
||04 - emergency gas service
||112 calls are handled by the State Fire and Rescue Service. If police or medical assistance is required, the call is redirected to the department the caller asks for. 0x -numbers are not reachable from mobile phones on their own but they can be prefixed with +371, e.g. +371 0x .
There are plans to introduce two new emergency numbers in 2010 that will be reachable from mobile phones (the current ones will remain in service)- 110 for police and 113 for the emergency medical service. -
||Special service numbers in Latvia may have different lengths, ranging from 3 to 6 digits. Formerly, before changes to the numbering plan were introduced on September 4, 2008, there were only 3 or 4 digit numbers.
||11x-numbers (except 112) are usually used by telephone companies for special services, such as dialing assistance or phone line damage reports.
||1xx-numbers are allocated to different companies for client services. Calling costs vary depending on the service provider, e.g. Lattelecom client service number 177 is toll-free for those who call from Lattelecom network phones, but it is not free to those who call from mobile networks.
||118x-numbers are allocated to inquiry services.
||16xx-numbers are allocated to network providers (both mobile and landline) for client services. These numbers are available only for calling from particular networks. ( Example: 1655 is available only for LMT clients
||116xxx-numbers are not allocated yet, but are expected to be used for toll-free non-commercial social services.
||18xx-numbers are allocated to different companies for various services. Some of these numbers are available for calls, some are sms only.
||82xxx-Premium-rate services (for example, speaking clock services, such as 82154 or 82174
||88xx and 89xx-numbers Premium-rate numbers for services that may include gambling, erotic material or violence.
||Some special service number holders have 8-digit geographical numbers to make their services available for access from abroad. Usually these numbers are chosen to be similar to short numbers. ( Example: Latvian railway information service number 1181 is accessible from abroad by dialling +37167231181
