How to forward your existing cell phone or landline to a phone number in another country

With an International Virtual Number it's easy to forward your cell phone or landline calls to a phone in another country.


If you currently have a cell phone or landline and you intend to relocate or travel on assignment to another country, you may want to have your calls follow you to your new phone and destination.


If you ask your existing cell phone or fixed line service provider if you can forward calls to another country, you'll find the answer will be similar to these answers below.


  • No we cannot do that.
  • I don't think so.
  • I think so, let me check and get back to you.
  • That type of service is not offered.
  • You cannot forward a call to another country.


The same policies apply for the UK, Australia, Japan, Germany, Denmark, Costa Rica, Chile, Malaysia and 195 other countries.


The phone service providers or Postal, Telegraph and Telephone Service (PTT's) only forward a mobile phone or landline to another phone number inside the country where the number is  from - so far (now 2023) 99% of countries do not permit forwarding calls internationally.


Our strategy forwards your calls globally to any phone.

Your calls will follow you internationally

There are two requirements you'll need to have your calls follow you internationally.


Requirement 1

Your existing phone number you wish to forward overseas needs to have a call forwarding option.



If you live in the U.S., your U.S. service provider gives you the option to divert U.S. calls to another phone number in the U.S.. The U.S. virtual number you get from us will be the local phone number you would forward your mobile or landline to.


In other words, if you want to send your phone calls to a phone number overseas, you need to have a call forwarding feature with your existing U.S. cell phone or landline service. Mostly everyone can forward a call to another domestic U.S. phone number, just not international.


Requirement 2

Now that you've confirmed that you have a call forwarding feature on the phone number that you wish to forward overseas, you now need an international virtual phone number that actually does the international call forwarding.


It's your new virtual phone number that enables forwarding your calls internationally.


How to do it


When you receive your new virtual number, simply set-up (usually done with a keypad command) using your call forwarding option with your current mobile or landline phone provider, to forward your calls to the new international call forwarding capable virtual phone number that you select and register with us.


When a call is received by the new virtual number, it will instantly divert your calls to any phone number you desire globally. Customers set this call destination phone number up on the registration form. If you don't know the number yet, use your cell phone number or landline number temporarily until you can change it online to the final overseas call destination number when you know what that is.

Setting up calls to follow you

If you already know the overseas phone number where you want your calls forwarded, that is great but not mandatory to register for the service.

If you do not know the final overseas call destination phone number yet, you can temporarily set up your account with your home or office number as your 'ring to' number. So temporarily your new virtual number will ring to whatever number you set up using registration form.

When you arrive at your travel destination or anytime you determine your final overseas call forwarding number, simply log in to your portal and change the temporary 'ring to' number to the real international call destination number to start receiving your calls.

Remember to disable your phone's call forwarding when you return home

After you decide your call forwarding requirement is over and you return from your vacation or assignment, simply disable the call forwarding feature on the cell phone or landline that you used to divert the calls to the new virtual phone number.

Everything will now be back to normal and work as it did before. You can also cancel the virtual phone number since there is probably no continuing use for it.
