Unlock GoPhone while abroad

I have a Nokia Lumia 635 GoPhone with ATT.  I will be abroad this summer when the six months lock period expires, and I'm eligible to submit the unlock request on the ATT website.

 

My question is:  Will the code be enough for me to unlock the phone and use it with a different carrier while I am abroad?  Or do I need to be connected to an ATT network to finish the unlocking process after I enter the code that ATT sends me?

When you receive the unlock code, if you put a foreign sim in your phone, it will ask for the code. If entered correctly, the phone will unlock and be usable on the foreign sim.

Perfect!  That's the answer I was hoping for.  Thank you.
