It has a public status with limited liability, and has been operating since its foundation in 1998, being the successor of the state postal service.

An important emphasis is placed on the quantity and quality of related services. The company is actively introducing modern e-solutions for clients.

At the same time, the company's service package is constantly checked and modernized in order to always meet the needs of customers as relevant as possible.


As stated above, MaltaPost p.l.c. was founded in 1998.

Let's delve into the history of the emergence of mail in Malta in principle. It is believed that the beginning was laid in the middle of the 16th century, and regularly grew steadily taking into account the presence of demand for delivery of letters.

Malta Post Reviews

Malta Post
Rate the carrier
How do we calculate the rating? People are more likely to post negative reviews (for example, when their package is delayed or lost) than positive reviews (when everything is fine). It doesn't mean that bad situations happen more often than smooth delivery, though. That's why we give the negative reviews lower priority to calculate a more accurate carrier rating.
