This is a survey of the postage stamps and postal history of South Georgia and the South Sandwich Islands.
The first stamps specifically for South Georgia were issued in 1944 and consisted of overprints on stamps of the Falkland Islands for use in South Georgia when it was part of the Falkland Islands Dependencies.
From 1946 to 1963, South Georgia used stamps of the Falkland Islands Dependencies.
From 17 July 1963 South Georgia had its own stamps again, simply marked South Georgia.
Today the stamps of the territory are inscribed South Georgia & South Sandwich Is.
