Can I use Verify with any number in the world?

Applies To

  • Verify API
  • Fixed Numbers
  • Mobile Numbers
  • VoIP Numbers


Yes. Verify works with both fixed and mobile numbers in all countries around the world, excluding North Korea.


Verify does not support Premium, Toll-free numbers, or VoIP numbers (i.e., virtual numbers such as Skype Numbers) outside of the US, as these are generally not considered to correspond to real users.

When you try to verify one of these numbers, the verification request will be rejected, and no SMS or call will be made. You can see all rejected verifications in your Vonage API account dashboard by going to Tools > Verify > Search Rejected.

Additional Information

If you are receiving Error 15 in response to your Verify API requests or you are having trouble sending requests to a specific country, see Error 15 on Verify API Request.

If you feel you need any of the above restrictions to be removed, submit a Support request with your use case.
