, officially the Republic of Uzbekistan, is one of only two doubly landlocked countries in the world (the other being Liechtenstein in Europe). Located in Central Asia, it is a unitary, constitutional, presidential republic, comprising twelve provinces, one autonomous republic and a capital city.  Once part of the Turkic Khaganate and later Timurid Empires, the region that today includes the Republic of Uzbekistan was conquered in the early 16th century by Eastern Turkic-speaking nomads. The area was gradually incorporated into the Russian Empire during the 19th century, and in 1924 what is now Uzbekistan became a bordered constituent republic of the Soviet Union, known as the Uzbek Soviet Socialist Republic (Uzbek SSR). Following the breakup of the Soviet Union, it declared independence as the Republic of Uzbekistan on 31 August 1991 (officially celebrated the following day).

The first stamps of Uzbekistan were issued on 7 May 1992. Before then, Uzbekistan used stamps of the Soviet Union. In 1993 and 1995 the Uzbekistan Post Office resorted to overprinting stamps of the Soviet Union as supplies of the new Uzbeki stamps ran low.
