Commonwealth countries and territories whose postal administrations are not known to have issued, or had issued on their behalf, any legitimate postage stamps during 2023 up until the end of October.

British Indian Ocean Territory 
Brunei Darussalam 
St Kitts 
Saint Lucia 
Solomon Islands 
South Africa 
Trinidad And Tobago 
Turks And Caicos Islands 

Therefore at the end of October, 27 Commonwealth philatelic entities are not yet known to have issued, or have had issued on their behalf, any legitimate postage stamps during 2023. This represents 30.7% of the existing philatelic entities (down from 31.8% at the end of September 2023) and compares with the figure of 24.7% at the end of October 2022. However there are still a number of issues from some countries about which we may not yet be aware such as the proposed Eastern Caribbean Bank 40th anniversary minibus in which St Kitts, Nevis, Saint Lucia and Montserrat may have participated; the PAPU Tower African omnibus - may Kenya have participated in that joint issue? - and issues from British Overseas territories including Anguilla, Turks And Caicos Islands and Montserrat linked to the succession of King Charles III.
