The rest of the world..

Twilio is in the process of providing phone numbers in more countries as quickly as we can. Each country has different regulations regarding the purchase and sale of telephone numbers, so we are not able to provide a timeline on when numbers in a specific country will be available.

You can make outbound voice calls from any country in the world by validating the caller ID of a phone number you already own in that country.
