British Postal Agencies in Eastern Arabia

British postal agencies in Eastern Arabia issued early postage stamps used in each of Abu Dhabi, Bahrain, Dubai, Kuwait, Muscat and Qatar.

Muscat and Dubai relied on Indian postal administration until 1 April 1948 when, following the Partition of India, British agencies were established there.

Two agencies were opened in Qatar: at Doha (August 1950) and Umm Said (February 1956).

In Abu Dhabi, an agency was opened on Das Island in December 1960 and in Abu Dhabi City on 30 March 1963.

The agencies also supplied stamps to Bahrain until 1960; and to Kuwait during shortages in 1951-53
