Postage rates up sharply - MaltaPost clarification

MaltaPost today announced a sharp rise in postage rates, saying it had been negatively impacted by changes in the framework, set by the Universal Postal Union, establishing inter-operator fees in respect of international mail.

In a clarification issued after its original statement, MaltaPost said the increases apply for domestic bulk letter mail, domestic and international registered mail and domestic and international printed papers only.

It said that for a number of years, various services, particularly domestic letter mail and mail registration, have recorded systematic losses.

The MCA approved the new tariffs. The revised tariffs shall still remain among the lowest in Europe.

With effect from Monday 19th November 2012, the following postal rates shall apply:
