Old stamps in the former currency of Belgian francs can be used until 2028, as long as their values correspond with the value of a stamp today, VRT NWS reports.
The current cost of a Bpost stamp stands at €1.39, which amounts to 50 Belgian francs. This means that letters or packages may have to include multiple old stamps to make up the difference.

In any case, this will come as good news to those in possession of stamps that predate Belgium's conversion to the euro in 2002, as they will now have until 1 January 2028 to use them up.
However, Bpost also told VRT NWS that older stamps can only be used on non-priority items which are delivered within a maximum of three working days.
