Twilio international phone number availability and their capabilities

Twilio offers Voice and SMS enabled phone numbers globally. 

You can view regulatory requirements for all Twilio phone numbers at this page.  

Dual Functionality (Voice and SMS enabled) Phone Numbers

Twilio phone numbers from the following countries have dual functionality and can be used to make/receive phone calls as well as to send/receive messages. International permissions to make calls or send SMS to other countries can be enabled for Voice and SMS respectively.

Please note, all Twilio SMS-capable numbers can be used to send one-way SMS to other countries, with the exception of the United States which can only receive SMS from US and Canada numbers. However, to guarantee two-way messaging (receiving incoming messages from end users), you must use a number from the same country as your recipient. More details on two-way SMS here.

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.
