Area Codes for
Popular Cities in Mexico

You may have a telephone number for a biological parent or family members in Mexico of a U.S. foster child, but the number doesn't work. Before you throw that number away, you may be missing one small piece of information.

Back in 2001, Telmex, Mexico's national telephone company, made huge changes in its area code system. You can read more here, but the bottom line is that you may have a good telephone number if you put it with the new area code.

To help you find a foster child's family in Mexico, we have put together a list of the most popular cities in Mexico. If you still have any questions, email us and we'll do our best to help you.
