Overseas and premium-rate calls using the NRS can be made by using a prepaid phone card for use in Australia. Prepaid phone cards offer a range of rates for calls to overseas countries. Check the cost and terms and conditions of use with the provider of the card. Cards can be purchased at multiple values at convenience stores, petrol stations, supermarkets and on the internet. The cards come with their own instructions but generally, a local number is dialled and a special PIN number is entered before the overseas number is dialled.
NRS users who are temporarily overseas can make and receive calls to and from persons in Australia using the NRS.
