This code was introduced on 1 July 1998 when Cyprus switched from its old international dialling code of +800 to +357 for all incoming calls from abroad. This change was made so that all incoming calls would be routed through international carriers instead of neighbouring countries. This has helped increase security as well as improve call quality for customers calling into Cyprus from abroad. Check programingplease for Cyprus in 2010.
