Jamaica Area Code Information
Jamaica is currently assigned two area codes 876 and 658. Area code 876 was created from a split of area code 809. On April 30, 2019 area code 658 was put into service as an overlay of area code 876.
Area code 809 originally covered most of the Caribbean when it was established in 1958. It was not until 1995 that an area code was established exclusively for Jamaica. Since Jamaica previously shared area code 809 with other Caribbean nations the establishment of area code 876 was technically a split of area code 809.
