Postage stamps and postal history of Burundi
Burundi has issued postage stamps for national use since achieving independence on 1 July 1962. The country was formerly a part of the Belgian territory of Ruanda-Urundi and before 1962 used those postage stamps.
For the first issue after independence, Burundi overprinted stamps of Ruanda-Urundi with Royaume du Burundi. Subsequent stamps were inscribed "Royaume du Burundi".
Republic of Burundi
In 1966, following political turmoil, Burundi became a republic and from then the stamps were marked République du Burundi.
