mostly hit and miss. I had seen issues on both sides. sometimes it took a week, other times it took over a month. sometimes no custom issues, sometimes got custom issues (opened/duty etc.).

Hi diptiparmar:

Please update your profile.
Your profile does not have much details. Enter your profile details today. Example: Labor, I-140, 485 details, etc. so we know more about who you are.


To answer your question:

A USPS rep told me once that they have a contract with Fedex. So, you prefer urgent delivery, they send it through Fedex. And you can track your package.

How much time it will take - it depends upon which service you prefer - regular postage, fast deliver, overnight.

Customs may or may not open your package.

Which city it will be easy: Depends upon the custom officer, working that day.

I would suggest you to send through Fedex or UPS, even if it costs more because once the package is outside US, you cannot track it through USPS, unless it is overnight or Express delivery.

You can send a registered post via USPS and it usually takes 10 days
Never send ordinary post, it will never reach the detination

I have tried both regaular and registerd post via USPS and never missed any post. Sometimes it took time, sometimes it was within 10 days.

Once I got my mail back as undelivered as apartment# was wrong :cool:
