    Question Coronavirus and International Packages ?

    Does anyone know the current situation regarding delivery/sending international and inland packages ?
    Obviously, I'm assuming there are long delays in delivering/receiving due to controls at national borders and I'm assuming different countries have different rules.
    There is the issue of signing for parcels because of the social distancing rules. How is that working ?

    Interested to hear your experiences.

    Above all, however difficult it is...do stay safe and heed these exceptional rules for your own safety and that of other people !!!

    I have a package from AgarwoodAssam and Naaz perfumes stuck in transit for weeks now. Both transactions are currently held up in New York and Mumbai according to the EMS tracking info. One package has been in US Customs in NYC since March 18th with no updates and the other has been in Mumbai as well waiting to be shipped since March 16th. The Mumbai package got stuck in transit at the airport it’s supposed to ship from. I guess I’ll get a nice surprise one day if they ever come.

    I've had long delays of packages from Germany, France, Italy, Hungary, and Australia to the US. It's not the end of the world (so to speak), but I'm disinclined toward further international purchases until the pandemic is resolved.

    I have had no delays or any problems with DHL Express deliveries from Germany, Sweden, or France. Throughout this crisis, thankfully still 2-3 days transit time to my door.

    All of my orders came thru India via EMS that were placed at the beginning of the month. My one order thru DHL actually arrived a day early.

    I have an order that's been held up in customs for nine days so far. I expected some delays and at this point I'm just hoping I'll get it and have completely given up on when. To be fair the expected delivery date is April 20th so I'm well within the expected time frame. Everyday when I check the tracking status I'm thinking Anticipation.
