This is the Post office . It is part of the KIwi bank , same as in New Zealand. This has just change since late last year. So you can see only a small sign outside the office in Alofi the capital. 

The Post office /Bank has a selection of stamps. They do not sell sets and mostly individual mixed stamps. They also offer a registered service using the old stype labels. However the staff do encourage use of this service  , as they told me it is very slow. 

Here is the only Post office worker who only works in the Post section. He is the Niue Postman . Since Niue post and Kiwi bank became one he now delivered mail around the island direct to customers. This is most unusual His name is Pana and everyone knows him. I told him he is famous .... 

This is the Philatelic bureau and Numismatic company of Niue. Stamps purchased here are officially for collection . The Bureau is supplied stamps from New Zealand Post. When Niue Post requires stamps they make a request from the Bureau . The Bureau is around the corner from the Post Office. 

This is inside the Bureau. They sell stamps and coins. However if you want stamps for mail they will re direct you over to the Post office. Interesting that the current definitive issue is sold out at the bureau and not available in the Post office either.
