    1. Hi Mr Hoo,

      It is actuallu too late. The cut-off date for the Standing Order Deposit Account was on 02 January 2017. Please refer to the latest blog post on the Malaysia Stamp Schedule with the cut-off dates.

      Your option is to queue early at the nearest Philatelic Bureau branch.

      All normal post offices will only sell stamps and very limited Miniature Sheets and envelopes. No folders will be sold in normal post offices.

      As this issue is speculative, the dealers and scalpers will send their “agents” as early as 07:00 am or earlier.
