Pristina - Post Report Question and Answers

How do you send and receive your letters and package mail? Are local postal facilities adequate?

DPO/Pouch. When we have tried to ship something from another European country to Kosovo, it's been challenging. Part of this is because not all countries recognize Kosovo, but also during the early pandemic shut down typical shipping routes were not open. Note: Food / household supplies were always available. It was less expensive and easier to have items from other countries shipped to our US DPO/Pouch address than directly. - Aug 2021

Pouch and DPO (although that might change). I've never used the local postal facilities. - Jul 2019

We are lucky to have Austrian KFOR soldiers here, and allowed to send and receive mail and parcels via them. - Nov 2016

Via DPO if you are with the Embassy via DPO. Be aware that when you are ordering from US to Kosovo that some items cannot be delivered outside of U.S. So if there are things you really need, investigate as to wether you can get them mailed to Pristina prior to departure. The work around is to mail to a relative or friend in the States and then have them mail it to you. - Jun 2016
