Stamps of Tuvalu

Updated October 8, 2011

The Tuvalu Philatelic Bureau sells all new stamp issues and first day covers at face value. The staff at the bureau offer a very efficient and friendly service, despite the relative isolation of Tuvalu. Stamps and philatelic items are available by mail direct from Tuvalu, and most major credit cards are accepted. Notification of new stamp issues by mail is available on request, and standing order accounts may be opened for new issues.

Ordering Tuvalu Stamps

The Tuvalu Philatelic Bureau now has an official website, called the Stamps of Tuvalu.

The website was made possible by the kind voluntary services of Mr Drevis Uitterdijk from Holland, with the cooperation of TuvaluIslands.com. Apart from creating this website, Mr Uitterdijk continues to maintain and update the site, working closely in collaboration with the TPB. They welcome any feedback from visitors that could help improve the services.

Stampsoftuvalu.com has images and order forms of all Tuvalu new issues and some past issues, and allows the purchase of stamps directly from Tuvalu by email orders. Credit card services are available.

Those collectors paying by credit card may also FAX their orders. Please contact the TPB for more information.

Tuvalu uses the Australian Dollar, and there is no charge for postage and handling.

Stamps are used for postage on all orders, which is a bonus for collectors.

Tuvalu Philatelic Bureau Newsletter

The Tuvalu Philatelic Bureau publishes a newsletter several times a year with information on new stamps and articles of general interest about Tuvalu. Collectors may subscribe to it by email or airmail by contacting the bureau at the above address.

TuvaluIslands.com is making all current and past issues of the newsletters available for viewing in PDF format on line. This service is currently in progress, and it is hoped that all issues, going back to 1976, the inaugerational year of Tuvalu stamps, will be posted.
