This is a survey of the postage stamps and postal history of Palau.

The Republic of Palau is an island nation in the Pacific Ocean, 500 miles east of the Philippines and 2,000 miles south of Tokyo.

Pre-independence[edit]

The islands first used stamps of Germany for the Caroline Islands and then stamps of Japan from 1914 to 1944. The islands then became part of the U.S. Trust Territory of the Pacific and used American stamps until 1983.

Independence[edit]

The first stamps of Palau were issued in 1983.[1]
