Barbados Stamps | Useful Links

This site has been designed to be a specialist site and therefore focuses only on the stamps of Barbados. There are many other sites catering for pretty much every stamp requirement, so below are just a couple which I have found useful. Please note that the listing of the sites here does not imply any sort of endorsement, these are just sites and people I have dealt with in the past and whom I have found helpful.

West Indies Philatelic Study Group

This society was formed in 2022 as a merger of both the British West Indies Study Circle (BWISC) and the British Caribbean Philatelic Study Group (BCPSG). The new society has a website with the archives of both previous societies as well as a huge number of other resources. You can visit the website here.

Barbados Post Office

The official website for the Post Office in Barbados is currently down and the main source for all new issues and news about the upcoming stamps of Barbados is available on Facebook. If, however, you are looking for a guide to The Post Offices of Barbados the guide on this website was updated in 2024.
