The Postal Union of the Americas, Spain and Portugal (UPAEP) is an intergovernmental organization, gathering at present 27 State Members, with headquarters in Montevideo, in Uruguay. Established in 1911 under the designation South America Postal Union, this Organization has amended successively its scope and designation, at first with the enlargement across the whole American territory.
