How to Send International Fax

If you are employing fax for your professional communications, it is probable that your faxes aren’t just limited to your own country. Most business users who use fax have to often send faxes internationally too. Therefore, it is important to learn a way through which you can send and receive faxes internationally.

Today you will even know something better than sending faxes internationally, and that is faxing without a fax machine or a phone line. This is enabled by using an online fax service provider which has the capability of global coverage.

We will discuss how you can use the internet to send and receive faxes to any corner of the world. Therefore, let us get started:

Part 1: What Do I Need to Fax Internationally?

In order to send and receive faxes, you don’t require much. As promised before, you won’t even need a fax machine, phone line, or any additional hardware other than what you already have.

Here are the things you will need to send an international fax:

Online Fax Service

An online fax service bridges the gap between the internet and a fax machine. You can use the online fax service to eliminate the need for any additional hardware. Further, you can send faxes directly through your computer or phone with an online fax service.

Fax Number

You also need a fax number to send or receive any fax (internationally or locally). Luckily for you, we are going to tell you how you can get a free fax number with the online fax service.

Exit Code

An exit code is a code that you will need to enter at the beginning of a fax document. It is based on the country from which you are going to send the fax. For example, if you are sending a fax from the United States to any other country, you will need to use an exit code: 011 at the beginning of the fax number.

International Country Code

The country code is a code that is used to identify the country to which you are sending a fax. This code comes in the recipient’s fax address after the exit code. This code is similar (though not the same) to the country code you dial before making an international call.

Receiver’s Fax Address

This is the fax number of the receiver. The receiver needs to share this number with you. Once you have it, the complete fax address to send international faxes becomes:

[Exit Code] [International Country Code] [Receiver’s Fax Number]

Now let us take an example. Suppose that you have an office in the US and you need to send a fax to a Chinese goods manufacturer with the fax number ‘123456’, the fax address will be:

011 86 123456

You can find the exit codes and country codes for all the countries in the later sections. For now, let us discuss the online fax service that you will need to use to send and receive international faxes:

Part 2: How to Send An International Fax Online for Free

Sending and receiving international faxes with CocoFax is as easy as faxing locally. There are only minute changes in the destination fax address, the rest is totally the same.

Therefore, let us discuss the steps to fax internationally without a fax machine or phone lines.

2.1 Fax Internationally through Web Browser

You can use your web browser of your phone or PC to send and receive faxes. Just follow these steps:

Sending International Faxes Through Browser

Step 1: Register for a CocoFax account. You will get a 30-day free trial and the luxury to choose your own fax number. Once you register, you will be taken to your CocoFax dashboard. You can also access this dashboard later by logging into your account.

Step 2: Click on the ‘Send Fax’ option on the corner of the dashboard. The new fax popup will open. You will need to enter the new fax details here.

In the ‘To’ field, enter the destination fax address. This address is of the form:

[Exit Code] [Country Code] [Fax number]

For example: 011 86 123456

The ‘Note’ and the ‘Cover Page’ field are optional. The note will appear on top of the fax document. The cover page is the first page of the fax document on the receiver’s end. You can also choose to leave these fields blank.

The important part is attaching the fax document. You can use the paper clip icon to add the fax document to this fax. CocoFax supports a variety of formats, including: pdf, doc, docx, xls, xlsx, png, jpg.

You can also attach multiple fax documents to a single fax. These documents will be merged as a single one and sent to the receiver.

Step 3: Once you have double checked the information, click on the ‘Send’ button. CocoFax will transmit your fax immediately.

When the fax document is received successfully by the receiver, you will get a delivery report in your email inbox. Even if the fax isn’t successfully transmitted, you get a delivery report about the same as well.

**The most common reasons for the fax being undelivered are that you entered an incorrect address or the receiver’s fax machine is busy or turned off. Theoretically speaking, there will be no shortcomings or issues on CocoFax’s end.**

Receiving International Faxes Through Browser

Receiving international faxes is even easier than sending them. Once you have created a CocoFax account, CocoFax gives you a fax number of your own choice. Anyone can send you faxes on this number.

When you receive a fax on your CocoFax fax number, you can check it at any time as per your convenience. It is available in the ‘Inbox’ tab of your CocoFax web dashboard.

2.2 Internationally through Email

CocoFax gives you the freedom to fax directly from your Gmail or any other email client. While emails by themselves do not support sending or receiving faxes, CocoFax acts as a translator between your email client and the other person’s fax machine.

Sending International Faxes Through Email

Step 1: Get a CocoFax account using the email address which you want to use for faxing. The first month is completely free for you to try out the services.

Step 2: Open your email client on your phone or computer. Click on the option that you use to create a new email. The new email popup will open.

In the ‘To’ field, you will need to enter the fax address of the receiver as mentioned in the previous section. However, this needs to be followed by ‘’. The format becomes:

[exit code] [country code] [receiver’s fax number] []

For example:

The subject field can contain any note that you wish to appear on top of the fax document. This field can be left empty as well. The email body is the cover page to the fax document. If you do not wish to add a cover page, you can leave it empty too.

Lastly, the fax document needs to be attached to this email. Make sure that there are no special characters in the document’s name.

Step 3: Once everything is done, double check all the information (especially the address). Click on the send button.

CocoFax will receive your email and send it as a fax to the receiver. You will then get a delivery report about the fax in your email inbox. This report also contains the transmission time and other important details.

Receiving International Faxes through Email

Once you register your email address with CocoFax, you will start receiving faxes in your email inbox automatically. You just have to make sure that you share your CocoFax fax number correctly with people.
