COMOROS - UNION OF THE COMOROS

Union of the Comoros (Comorian: Udzima wa Komori, French: Union des Comores, Arabic: الاتحاد القمري‎ al-Ittiḥād al-Qumurī / Qamarī), is a sovereign archipelago island nation in the Indian Ocean located at the northern end of the Mozambique Channel off the eastern coast of Africa between northeastern Mozambique and northwestern Madagascar. Other countries near the Comoros are Tanzania to the northwest and the Seychelles to the northeast. Its capital is Moroni, on Grande Comore.
The country consists of three major islands and numerous smaller islands, all in the volcanic Comoros archipelago. The major islands are commonly known by their French names: northwestern-most Grande Comore (Ngazidja); Mohéli (Mwali); and Anjouan (Nzwani). The islands are officially known by their Comorian language names, though international sources still use their French names (given in parentheses above). The capital and largest city, Moroni, is located on Ngazidja. The archipelago is situated in the Indian Ocean, in the Mozambique Channel, between the African coast (nearest to Mozambique and Tanzania) and Madagascar, with no land borders.



These are my first registered airmail envelopes from Comoros, posted from the capital city on and I received in my hands on October 25,2017. Thank You Soilih for the big help for the perfect postmarking and the full blue UPU labels.

The beautiful covers from Comoros posted on July 24, 2017 and I received in my hands on august 28, 2017. Comoros is considered as one of the rarest country among philatelists to get a really traveled envelopes and stamps. It is a treasure for me when I receive the cover, because i tried a number of times to get back my envelopes but failed either by lost or not sent back the recipient. These covers were reached almost 10 months back but stucked in airport customs department.Thank You Solilih for the big help to arrange the beautiful covers.
