German Offices Abroad

In 1899, the Reich Post Office setup its own postal system in Morocco to better serve German trade companies in the region. The system began with seven post offices, with the post office in Tangier serving as the main office reporting directly to the Reich Post Office in Berlin.

With the outbreak of World War I, the post offices in the French Zone were occupied and closed. The post office in the International Zone of Tangier was closed two weeks later, on 19 August 1914. Post offices in the Spanish Zone (Arsila, Alkassar, Larache, Tetuan) remained open until 18 May 1919, when pressure from the French finally led to their closure.

Alkassar (27 May 1901 – 16 June 1919)
Arsila (1 May 1911 – 16 June 1919)
