The 649 area code serves a unique and specific purpose within the North American Numbering Plan (NANP), distinct from the typical geographic area codes assigned within the United States and Canada. Assigned to the Turks and Caicos Islands: The 649 area code is designated for the Turks and Caicos Islands, a British Overseas Territory located in the Atlantic Ocean and the Caribbean Sea. This area code is not associated with a location within the continental United States or Canada but is part of the NANP, which includes several Caribbean countries and territories. International Dialing Considerations: Calls to the 649 area code from within the United States or Canada are treated as international calls. This means that international calling rates and procedures apply, despite the Turks and Caicos Islands being part of the NANP. Callers should be aware of potential international charges and may need to dial "011" (the international access code) followed by "1" (the NANP country code), and then the 649 area code. Tourism and Communication Needs: The Turks and Caicos Islands are a popular tourist destination, known for their beaches, coral reefs, and as a luxury travel destination. The 649 area code supports the islands' communication needs, serving both the local population and the tourism industry, which is a significant part of the local economy. The 649 area code represents the Turks and Caicos Islands' integration into the North American telecommunications system, facilitating connectivity for this Caribbean territory with the rest of the NANP region.
