Give it atleast another 10-15 days. I had sent an USPS express mail last year and it took more than a month to reach my parents.

Hi Guys,
I used 'Express Mail International' recently to send visa documents for my parents. I used the below link to track it online on the USPS website.
https://tools.usps.com/go/TrackConfirmAction.action

EG97805XXXXUS Express Mail International® Processed Through Sort Facility August 02, 2011, 8:54 pm ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS)
Processed Through Sort Facility July 30, 2011, 5:03 pm ISC MIAMI FL (USPS)
Arrived at Sort Facility July 30, 2011, 5:02 pm ISC MIAMI FL (USPS)
Processed through Sort Facility July 29, 2011, 7:01 pm JACKSONVILLE, FL 32203
Acceptance July 29, 2011, 5:20 pm JACKSONVILLE, FL 32246

As you can see I dropped it at the local post office on Friday afternoon at 5:20pm. The package was delivered at my house in Chennai at 5pm on August 9th.

I was able to track the package on 'India Post - Speed Post tracking' website
India Post - Speed Post Tracking

I used the same usps tracking number and entered it against the article number field seen there. Once you are on the next page, click the Movement link and you will see the status.

Date & Time To Office Event Remarks
09/08/2011 08:59:00 PORUR Article Received
09/08/2011 PORUR Article Delivered TO: My Dad's name

Note that I was not able to see any prior statuses apart from receiving and delivering at the final post office (nothing like awaiting Customs clearance, dispatched to Chennai etc). Also I'm not able to tell whether this package went through Mumbai or directly landed in Chennai.

Bottom-line, it took a total of 10 calendar days (7 business days). I hope this information is useful to all.

Hi - I am in similar situation, USPS registered mail going to Ahmedabad.

USPS tracking for my package status is also stuck on "SC NEW YORK NY(USPS) Processed through USPS Sort Facility" since Feb 24. Can you please track your package via IPS and post status? IPS Web Tracking/Item Tracking
Mine says "Insert item into bag" since Feb 24.

I have been using USPS Registered Mail service to send documents/pictures to India since last 16 years and never have this sort of delay.
Thanks and good luck.

Just FYI,

I know it may not be relevant to all documents sent but all the visa documents can be emailed. We scanned and emailed everything to my parents. Scanning /prinitng works out much cheaper and is almost instantaneous. My parents did not even have a email ID, we created a new mail ID for them, mailed all the docs to it and they just made a note of mail ID and password and went to a local cafe to get all the docs printed.

VOs happily accept scanned documents.

Btw, instead of using USPS, you may also want to look at FedEx, If you create a free account on fedex, the prices go down dramatically.

I just sent USPS flat rate medium box via USPS International Priority Mail. I filled out custom form as well (not sure, if it is required to fill custom form for sending any documents though). It took more than 3 weeks to reach to India. It reached safely though. I would suggest to call USPS and talk to customer representative. Provide all details, and s/he may be able to open international shipping incident (something like Service Request).

Hi Vishwa,

I am in a similar situation and wanted to find out if your documents reached India safely and how long did it take to process. Would appreciate your update on this.

Thank you.

Was your package delivered successfully? I am stuck in the same boat as you and it says "Insert item into bag" and has been stuck there since 5/9/2013.

Default Where is my package ? will it reach soon ?

Hello everybody,

I am really in trouble. I sent my GF's visa document by USPS on 11th june to pune,India, It's express mail and supposed to reach there in 3 to 5 business days. But it's saying "Your item was processed through our ISC NEW YORK NY(USPS) facility on June 12, 2013 at 11:10 am. The item is currently in transit to the destination." after that no update. Today is 20th june. Can anybody tell me where exactly it is ? Will it reach there before 26 because she has a flight ? I tried calling USPS but they are helpless. They opened a query but no answer as of now.

Please help me out. Is there anything I can do ?

Thanks a lot.
Saurabh

Default Find friends who travel and send with them

There is a quicker, cost effective and personal way to send such things. Check out ManyShip (you can google it). ManyShip offers a global marketplace that connects senders needing to send products/goods quickly and safely with travelers who have space to carry. The transactions take place inside trust networks only. They do manual checks on the people sending and carrying things to keep it safe for everyone. Safety of travelers is dealt with utmost seriousness.

with regard to delivery abroad, consider using American eBox as your forwarding agent. They provide an Express service akin to DHL with better rates and the needed tracking to all countries abroad. https://live.americanebox.com
