1993 – Independence and admittance to the United Nations

In Kyrgyzstan, until 1992, the stamps of Russia and, subsequently, the Soviet Union were used. Kyrgyzstan has issued stamps from 1992. A word of caution concerns stamps inscribed Kyrgyzstan that are not recognized by the Kyrgyzstan postal authorities. These stamps have appeared on the market since 1998 and cover a wide range of issues mainly aimed at the thematic collectors market. These issues are not listed in the catalogs.
