International Mail ...With MaltaPost

Sending something internationally?

New Regulations when sending an Item of Value overseas

If you are sending an item of value abroad, you are now required to declare your items electronically prior to export.

This includes information on the sender, the recipient and the parcel's contents.

This data is required for customs clearance processes for cross-border e-commerce postal traffic and is a mandatory procedure required by postal operators worldwide.

Avoid spending unnecessary time at the Post Office

To speed the process up and avoid spending unnecessary time at the Post Office you can also declare your items from the comfort of your home or office. As soon as you submit all the details online you will be prompted with a Declaration ID Code.

It is advisable to print the CN22/CN23 label beforehand and present this to the Post Office together with your parcel.

Declare Your Items online

IMPORTANT INFORMATION: Due to the COVID-19 outbreak, the international postal service is experiencing severe disruptions. International connectivity and handling capacity is limited, whilst every postal operator is adhering to different levels of health and safety measures which may lead to further delays within the destination countries. We are constantly working with our international counterparts across the globe to meet the indicated delivery times. However due to the unprecedented situation, delays may be expected.
