The Italian Post Office in Janina opened in August 1902. It closed from 1911 to 1913 because of the Italo-Turkish War. It finally closed in November 1914. For a period in 1917 it was opened as a Military PO using Italian stamps.

In February 1909, seven denominations were created by overprinting Italian stamps along with the denomination in Turkish currency.
