- Andorra (Spain)
Postal services in Andorra are unique in that they are not operated by the country itself, but by its two larger neighbouring countries, Spain and France.[1This is a legacy of the centuries of de facto control exercised by those two countries over Andorra. Correos of Spain and La Poste of France operate side by side.
However the postal code system, introduced in July 2004, has a different format from those of either Spain or France, consisting of the letters "AD", followed by three digits.
Both postal administrations issue their own postage stamps for use in Andorra featuring unique designs,[ as those of Spain and France are not valid within Andorra for postal purposes. These are used for international correspondence, as postal service within Andorra is free.
In WOPA we are happy to have both Andorra sets of stamps on the site and having launched them both simultaneously. Stamps are despatched by their respective Postal Administration (France or Spain) hence why we treat them as separate on the WOPA website.
