At the same time, you may not want them worrying about calling an office in the Caribbean, the Philippines, Singapore, Vietnam, Honduras, or wherever your office may happen to be.
Using global virtual phone numbers takes geographical phone number differences out of the equation, while also allowing for more robust communications between your customers and your customer and tech support staff.
How Global Virtual Phone Numbers for USA and Canada Work
A virtual phone number from another country looks and acts like a native phone number to callers from within that country. However, any calls made are automatically routed to a phone located elsewhere in the world.
For example, let’s say you’re running a financial consultancy located in Brazil with many of your clients living in USA. Rather than giving them your Brazilian phone number and expecting them to call you using international long distance, you could simply get a USA global virtual phone number. You can order either a toll free global virtual number for USA or choose a regional global virtual number such as for New York, Atlanta, Miami, or Los Angeles.
To the caller in the United States, or Canada as the case may be, it is not readily apparent that the global virtual phone number is for a business located in Brazil. If you use a city-specific global virtual phone number such as for Miami, Florida, it will appear as though your business has a local office in that city.
This is one of the least expensive ways to establish a local business presence. Since the global virtual phone number transfers the phone calls from USA or Canada to your designated phone in a different country, your existing office staff can handle the incoming calls. Similarly, you could also choose to have the global virtual phone numbers ring to a call center.

Who Pays for Any Associated Costs with Global Virtual Phone Numbers?
Global virtual phone numbers work much like traditional toll free phone numbers. The account holder pays for the call forwarding costs. If you get a toll free USA global virtual phone number, your callers will not incur any expenses whatsoever. On the other hand, if you get a regional USA global virtual phone number, your USA callers may incur local or long distance charges based on their locations in relation to the location associated with the phone number.
