How to Fax Canada From South Korea

The way to send a fax from South Korea to Canada with a machine is fairly straightforward, although sending a fax with a smartphone or email is much easier. You will need to dial the international dialing prefix for South Korea first ( 001 or 002 ) followed by the country code for Canada ( 1 ) and then the number you are trying to fax.

Format your dialing to look like this:

001 or 002 - 1 - [fax number in Canada]

South Korea has at least two international dialing prefixes. The prefix depends on the carrier or network (and sometimes region) from which you are dialing. The first code will usually select the default carrier.

Dialing Codes and Things to Know

Canada is part of the North American Numbering Plan; it shares '1' as a country code with the U.S., Puerto Rico, and other memebers.

Is Your Machine Dialing Too Quickly?

Sometimes delayed connections in the phone switches require you to insert a pause after the international dialing prefix ( 001 or 002 ), the country code ( 1 ), and the number that you are dialing.

Some machines interpret a comma ( , ) as a pause, while other models use the pound sign ( # ).

Speed Settings

Noise on the long-distance call between South Korea and Canada may cause data loss during transmission. If this happens, try lowering the baud rate on your fax machine to 9600 baud.

Note: Lowering the baud rate will allow a more stable connection, however, it will slow down transmission. Long-distance calling charges may be more.
