The Cyprus Post, known in Greek as Κυπριακἀ Ταχυδρομεἰα, operates the postal services throughout Cyprus. The Cyprus Post website is available in both English and Greek, and provides information on pricing, services, tracking, postcodes, local post offices, as well as money orders and transfers.

Domestic letters mostly reach their destination the next day, with a maximum delivery time of three days, while international letters can take up to 1-2 weeks to arrive at their destination. Domestic letters cost a minimum of 0.34 Euros to send, and the price will increase depending on weight, distance, and if you want faster delivery time. Check what postal rate you can expect to pay with Cyprus Post's handy postal rate calculator tool.

If you want your letter to arrive faster, you can choose the slightly more expensive airmail option.

The price to send parcels differs depending on weight, size, and type of parcel, UPS and DHL also have locations throughout Cyprus, if you would like to send a package with these carriers.

If you are sending a letter or package internationally from Cyprus, the destination country will also affect the price, as Zone A countries (Europe, some of North Africa and the Middle East) are less expensive than Zone B countries (the rest of the world).
