The area code for The Bahamas is 242 and the country is part of the NANP.

The area code was created in a split from the original area code 809 around October 1996. The area code is also represented on the telephone dial by the letter sequence BHA.

In The Bahamas, a local telephone number is dialed using the seven digits of the telephone number. Callers from the United States or another NANP country would dial 1 242 and the seven digit number. Callers from outside the NANP would dial their international access code, followed by 1 242 and the seven digit number.
