Dubai Postal Cancels
1963 - 1972

The Dubai Postal Authority used a variety of cancels from 1963 - 1972, when it had its own postal service. The cancels may be divided into two main periods: 1963-1965 when the contract for the Dubai postal stamps was held by Michel Stephan and 1965-1972 when the Dubai postal authorities were themselves responsible for their stamps. My thanks to R. Howard Courtney for supplying the photocopies and the earliest known used (EKU) dates of many of these cancels. My thanks to Khalid al-Omaira for supplying the images of several other Dubai cancels and for the earliest known used dates of a number of these cancels.
