How to Dial an International Fax Number

If you do business with clients who are overseas, you may need to send them a fax once in a while. The process for sending an international fax is almost identical to sending a domestic fax within the United States, except there are a few more numbers involved. Before dialing the fax number, make sure that your phone line has international-calling capabilities. You will be charged international rates while the fax is transmitting your documents.
