I have a couple of references that are very willing to vouch for me, but they are working out of the country right now.  They both have email access, but calling them is rather pricey.  I want to note why I haven't included a phone number on my reference list and/or encourage an email to them, but I'm not sure how.  Anyone else had this issue?  What did you do?

If they have a phone number at which they are able to be reached (wherever they are), I would just list that. Either the area code will give it away, or, if you like, you could just put in a little *note saying 'out of country - extra fees may apply.'

list the email, with a note
currently working over seas.

should do the trick.

they can drop them an email and figure out how to talk to each other.

my last recommendation I gave out I did over skype.
