Shipping times from USA?

Postby ExpatBob » Fri Jul 06, 2012 12:13 pm

I had a package of books and DVDs shipped to me from the US, via USPS. It was last seen on the 24th of June in Miami, just curious if it is languishing in the Correo Chile somewhere, if I should have seen it by now. Is there a predictable timeframe that one can expect to send packages here from the US, or is it an anyone's-guess situation?
I'm expecting either a slip telling me I owe taxes, or a package. So far I haven't seen either. Or is this a sort of psychic thing where I am supposed to know it's here and go to Aduanas to get it?
Nothing irreplaceable, which is why I sent it as a test. Total value of everything in there maybe US$100 max.

Between 2 to 6 weeks (unpredicable), 8 when there are strikes, or lazyness times like Sep,Jan,Feb,

you will either get the package or and aviso.... you dont need to guess anything, just wait :)

Also depends on where you are in Chile. Here in Puerto Aysen we are happy if something arrives in 2 weeks. DHL and FedEx both take 10 days for 'overnight'. On the long side we've had letters take a year.
