    Postal service to the Philippines.

    Four and a half weeks since I posted my Valentines card, it has still not arrived in Leyte.

    The Royal Mail website claims 6-7 working days for International Standard delivery, that's airmail, I even put a little blue "Par Avion" sticker next to the stamp.

    Oh well, it might get there early, only another 50 weeks to go.

    Don't expect it to arrive at all. You should've just bought a card online that doesn't go thru customs (from the online shops where you buy gifts for the Philippines).

    We sent 2 small packages of coffee for my parents in the past thru Royal Mail. One arrived after 3 months and the other went missing. We sent it via air cargo and supposed to arrive in 3 to 5 days. After probably 14 months, the other box turned up and my mum had to pick it up from the post office. It arrived from UK to Philippines after 3 days from the day we sent it. It was stuck in the Philippine customs all those times. Do not trust Philippine customs in anything, whether letters or packages.

    I sent a small package to Valencia via Post office 30th December air mail, the receipt and paperwork states up to 7 weeks delay because of covid restrictions and if not delivered by 25 days I can claim value of contents and postage so I put in my claim. Hopefully it still could arrive ok
