Stamps with a value in Belgian francs or euros may no longer be valid from 2023. De Tijd discovered that a new Royal Decree is being drawn up on this. Post and telecom regulator BIPT is currently organizing a public consultation on this.
Since 2011, bpost no longer issues stamps with a value. Unstamped postage stamps in Belgian francs or euros issued after October 2, 1961, remained valid indefinitely. Article link https://www.news1.news/news/2021/02/old-stamps-may-no-longer-be-valid-from-2023.html
The competent minister Petra De Sutter (Groen) wants to put an end to this, according to the bill. If approved, the old stamps will become unusable from January 1, 2023.
Bpost says the old stamps cannot be checked by machine and that other countries have already banned the old stamps. “Moreover, there is enough time in the transition period to still use the old stamps,” says bpost spokeswoman Veerle Van Mierlo. Old stamps cannot be exchanged for new stamps or for money.
