You may have asked yourself: Does this island nation even need postage stamps? How do postal services work here? If you’ve ever tried to send a letter or a parcel to the Maldives, you’ll agree that these services are poorly developed here. Even sending a postcard from the Maldives can be an almost superhuman feat – you can buy a postcard, but you can only get a stamp for it from a vendor by chance, and they are perhaps only available in the capital Malé.

Nevertheless, there is a post office in the Maldives and Maldivian stamps have been issued there since 1906!
