Christmas 2021

MaltaPost continues to face unprecedented challenges. During the last two years we worked hard, invested in new technology and evolved to maintain business continuity. Despite these circumstances, we are proud to have successfully delivered thousands of e-commerce parcels and mail items.

We invite you to shop online for your gifts early and post your Christmas Cards and parcels well before the indicated deadlines, particularly for international deliveries. Ongoing Covid restrictions, reduced airline and freight capacity, seasonal high volumes and winter weather conditions are all impacting on transportation across the globe and eventually on local delivery. We remain committed to delivering all items the next day they arrive in Malta unless they are withheld for Customs inspection.
