Brief History – Emirates Philatelic Association:

The Emirates Philatelic Association (EPA) was established according to Ministerial Decree No. 372 on June 24, 1996. Since then, the Association has tried to continue the success achieved by Philately in the UAE. It has an elected governing council for a four year period comprising a President, Vice President, Hon. Treasurer, Hon. Secretary, Chairman of Special Committees, and four Committee members. The EPA now has 520 subscribing members, many of whom are at an advanced enough level to participate in international shows. In a short period of time, the Association has been able to develop philately at local, Arab and international levels. This has been achieved through its zealous participation in various activities and exhibitions and through the effort put forth by its members.

The office is located at No. 87 Al- Bastakia Heritage Area, Bur Dubai to serve you. You can find us near the mosque in historical buildings. The office is called “Philately House” and is a permanent gallery to demonstrate the history of the post in the UAE. In addition, it shows the development of the post activities before the federation of the UAE till now, and the distinguished collection of postal stamps and postmarks as well.
