How best to send small parcel to the USA


Recommended Posts

I'm in Loei and need to send a small parcel to the USA. Post office only accepts surface mail during Covid. There is no Fedex or DHL etc in the area. I want to send express with tracking. Can anyone advise?

I was told they don't send any mail to the US at the present time the other day. I tried at one of the delivery services and they said the same. I can wait but I have to say I was quite surprised that mail has stopped. Maybe it's just up here in the Northeast.

I was told the same thing. ASEAN no problem but USA no. Thailand Post have an arrangement with DHL. I contacted DHL and they said yes they are accepting mail.

Seems our local Post Master is either ill-informed or he puts the farangs request in the too hard basket. No surprises there.

This file from the Thai Post website states parcels can be sent to the US in Thai and English.

It will not be cheap to send by DHL, UPS or the Thai P.O. which will ship via DHL.  Our son sent me a small package via UPS.  the charge was $130 USD!  I would expect the same or similar pricing going to the US from Thailand.
