How to Fax Puerto Rico From Australia

The way to send a fax from Australia to Puerto Rico with a machine is fairly straightforward, although sending a fax via email is much easier. You will need to dial the international dialing prefix for Australia first ( 0011 or 0015 ) followed by the country code for Puerto Rico ( 1 ) and then the number you are trying to fax.

Format your dialing to look like this:

0011 or 0015 - 1 - [fax number in Puerto Rico]

Australia 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

Puerto Rico is a U.S. territory and part of the North American Numbering Plan (NANP). The two area codes for Puerto Rico are 787 and 939.

Is Your Machine Dialing Too Quickly?

Sometimes delayed connections in the phone switches require you to insert a pause after the international dialing prefix ( 0011 or 0015 ), 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 Australia and Puerto Rico 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.
