  1. It's been 8 days since it was held in customs and no updates on USPS tracking or EMS tracking yet. No letter from customs in the mail either. Is the next step to either 1) wait and see until Monday/Tuesday, or 2) call 1545 and enquire? Do they speak English or do I need my Thai mate to call them up?
  2. If you can't find anything but still really want to live and work in Thailand (and are willing to pay 30% of your income), you could consider Iglu. I considered using them but ended up finding my own way -- and the 30% cut they take was way more than the tax I pay anyway. Their consultants were pretty helpful and informative when I reached out to them. The main benefit that I recognized from them was the work permit and visa being sorted out for you + the networking opportunities they explained.
  3. Hey all A package I ordered from a USA merchant arrived in Thailand on the 10th but has had the status "Held in Customs" since the 10th of this month. I haven't seen this status before so I'm not sure what to do about it. Do I just wait and it'll eventually be cleared? Am I going to get a letter to come pay duties on the package? This is the 3rd time I've ordered the same package in the last 8 or so months and the manifest has always been correctly labelled, so I'm at a loss for why this particular order is "held" at customs. I checked the tracking code on the Thai EMS website and it says the status is "To Customs" and there's a link to the customs website. Searching for the tracking number on the customs website shows a completely unrelated order from a few years ago to some hospital in Thailand. Do you guys have any experience with this status? Hell, I'd even take some anecdotes or conjecture at this point.
