Any Mail arriving from USA?

Recommended Posts

I sent something important to US by EMS 2 weeks ago. Tracking shows it leaving Swampy outward express office then nothing more, and it has nto arrived at destination in US. No idea where it is or if it will ever arrive.

 

As for inbound - hot or miss, dribs and drabs.

Thanks for your report. Please let us know when it gets there. 🙂

fyi... I had a bunch of small packages mailed from the U.S. on various days in the first week of June via airmail. None of them had arrived until yesterday, when all half dozen or so of them showed up here in BKK on the same day.

 

The normal delivery time for my US to BKK packages via airmail is about two weeks. In this case, for whatever reasons, the end to end timing took about a month.

 

Still missing the only package among the group that likely would get flagged for any customs duty or VAT. That one was sent via USPS Priority Mail Intl instead of regular airmail, and still hasn't surfaced yet. Though I'm guessing I may get a duty due notice sometime in the coming week.

I tried to mail a letter to the US this last week, after July 1 and the post office still told me that they only have EMS. So I don't know if that is correct, PiB. It might be the locals here out in the countryside who are running the post office. They don't seem to be the quickest doing their job. Still waiting for that normal world.

And your local post office was right.  If you want to mail a document like a letter they only have EMS.  No can do regular letter by airmail....must use EMS.  Now if your want to mail a "parcel" by Parcel Post Air you can.  Take another look at my post which include the Thai Post Office snapshot of current services.

It seems like people are now reporting ~ 10 - 14 day deliveries for airmail letters ( 1 oz/ $1.20 ) from the U.S. to Thailand.

 

Is that a reasonable conclusion?

Yes, I think I'll stipulate that mail sent say before ~ mid-June is "on a boat". My Stimulus sent ~ May 1 - 15-ish remains undelivered.

 

I was specifically asking about items mailed from the U.S. more recently.

Same same. A letter may get dropped through the crack but over all not a chance. Airlines have cut back or canceled service to the USA. If you have to send or receive you need to use FedEx they deliver in about 4 days. I have two items that before  Covid 19 were sent by air mail in 7 days. These items will now be sent FedEx. Even Thai Post on ems is taken 15 days to the states where before it was 1 week.

My question was specific to airmail (1 oz/$1.20), usa to thl.

 

There have been a few recent reports in this thread reporting 10 - 15 days delivery.

 

 

Hence my question if this seems reasonable to expect now.

Not even. Use FedEx until this is sorted.

Although have received occasional direct mail from USA in couple of weeks it still appears to be a mess and Blue Cross insurance was using Jersey and some place in middle east to drop mail and just get one from January along with others from April and May (based on contents - although none have dated postmarks) so that appears to be an even worse choice.
