Regular postal service came in with the French rule in Algeria, initially as a military post established in 1830 in Algiers, which was then opened to civilians in 1835, but still using military handstamps until 1839, after which datestamps with town names became standard. The service expanded into the interior along with French control, with 295 post offices in operation by 1880.

From 1848 until 1924 the normal French postal administration was active in Algeria. The French considered it to be 3 French departements (départements français d'Algérie): Alger, Oran and Constantine. The more southern area was"Territoires de Sud" and fell under military administration. From 1849 onwards the normal French stamps were used and stamps from Algeria can only be found if cancelled in an Algerian bureau. 83 post offices had a small number cancel "oblitération Petits chiffres" between 3710 and 4448 (but not all of these numbers). Most frequent are 3710 Alger, 3721 Constantine and 3732 Oran.
