The Eritrean Posta Service (EPS) has been operating since the Italian colonial era in 1890. The services were provided to its Italian community only. As part of their expansion pan, the Italians established 26 post offices In every town and semi towns. After the defeat of the Italians in 1942, the British Government didn’t take any further action to improve the expansion of postal services country wide. To the contrary, the number of Post office decreases from 26 to 19.

In 1952 after Eritrean was federated with Ethiopia, the Eritrean Postal Service was reduced its status to regional post office with the name Northern Region Post Office and was deliberately neglected. Nothing was done by the Ethiopian Government to expand and develop the postal service system in Eritrea.

After liberation in 1991, the Eritrean Postal service started its operation with limited activities in Domestic mails only. After the official declaration of independence in April/1993, Eritrean Postal Service (EPS) became member of the United Nations, and in August/1993 member of the Universal Postal Union (UPU). Since then, the EPS is acting in the international postal works and most part of  Eritrea. At present there are a total of  32 postal outlets all over the country.
