Hi there,

I sent a parcel to India 2 weeks ago. The guy in the post shop said it would take 3 to 10 working days to arrive. It has not arrived yet, I know it only been two weeks and things in India are a bit different. I am just wondering if anyone of you has experience with sending stuff from NZ to India. The parcel itself is not very big and had rather unexciting stuff in it (NZ-Chocolate, socks and a card ) How long would it be stuck in customs?! The parcel was sent to Mumbai.

Thanks for your help.

give it another week, things don't run as smoothly in india as it does in some parts of the world.

If the package is registered, you could trace where it currently is via online postal portals. Sometimes, customs officials need to "test" the contents, to make sure the declaration is genuine.

Thanks for your reply. I guess I have to wait. I just don't want the parcel to get lost or the content to disappear... I'll give it another week before I start investigating...

Give it a month, then assume it's lost permanently.

If its not registered you don't have a prayer..
However, I sent a blanket by DHL (ultra light so it doesn't press on wounds) by DHL and it arrived..

... One of those blankets that gets more valuable with age?

Arunse... Valuable jewellery? You don't. Wouldn't you think twice about that anywhere in the world?

If you must, then I suppose you use one of the international couriers, declare its true value, and pay to insure it. My guess is that that will be very very expensive. Please also consider customs duty of the receiving country.

Had a problem recently with an Amazon return, of a computer component to UK. It was accepted by a local courier, who then got back to me saying they were unable to export it, but could transfer it to DHL who could. Cost twice as much. Amazon paid anyway... Over half the value of the item... So I didn't have to cry.

No body would take jewellery. Even if they do they would charge a bomb. Even after you pay a bomb there is no guarantee that it would arrive safely at your intended destination (as you might need to state what is being sent).

Wouldn't it be a good idea to carry it along with you? Please carry the proper bills along with you and be prepared to pay duty.

Oh dear. Hope it doesn't turn out to be another scam. Hope you don't stand to loose too much.
