    Hello! I need to fax our birth certificates, passports, etc. to my wedding planner in Ocho Rios. She gave me an "876" number to send them to. I looked online and it appears you just dial it like any other long distance number in the US? Does anyone know if there are additional charges for dialing/faxing "876" other than the usual long distance charges? I was nervous I would do it incorrectly and send our personal information to Joe Schmo in who knows where. And I also wondered if I used my work fax machine if it would cost money because it's out of the country. That wouldn't be good!

    Thanks!!!

      It will charge you for an international call, at least that is how I was charged with my carrier. I'm sure each carrier is different as to what the actual cost is, but be aware it is an international fee.

        This is correct. I think my call was about $2 per minute. Luckily we had a stateside planner through the resort that handled all of that so I only called once. You might also check with your cell phone compnay and see what their international rate is.

        You just dial like you normally would, 1 + area code + number.

        My recommendation is to scan your documents in (you can do this at Kinko's if you don't have or know someone that has a scanner) and e-mail the documents to her. That way you know she's the recipient.
