Posta Shqiptare is the national postal service of Albania. Posta Shqiptaresh is a public limited company owned by the Albanian Government.
The postal services in Albania have started since the country was part of the Ottoman Empire. According to sources and history books it is thought that the first postal offices opened during the 1840s and 1850s. A more organized postal service started in 1878 where postal offices were opened in every city in Albania. In the end of the 19th century and in the beginnings of the 20th century, in Albania started working two naval companies which would also work as postal offices for deliveries abroad. The headquarters were in Tirana and consisted of a director, four telegraphists, a Prime telegraphist, two postal workers and a delivery worker.
The first Albanian post stamps were emitted on May 5, 1913. During this government were produced six different emissions of stamps.
Postal Codes in Albania consist of 4 digits; the first two digits show the branch on a district level located at the center of that administrative level, whereas the second two digits show the postal office offering service to a defined administration unit on a municipality level.
