Geo permissions name change for Norfolk Island (+672)

Geographic permissions exist to help you protect your application from fraud and abuse, or simply avoid unexpectedly high costs for voice or messaging usage. Voice Geo Permissions control which countries and subsets of phone numbers you can dial out to from your Twilio project and can be managed in the Console via the Voice Geo Permissions page or using the API.


We have updated the country name for the code +672 from “Norfolk Island” to “Australian External Territories” to be more consistent with the definition by the International Telecommunications Union (ITU)

  • Australian External Territories (country code +672)  
  • Norfolk Island (external territory of Australia) (country code +672 3)
