I am not sure about inbound. Outbound is okay. I sent a package to the US the other day. Trace says it has cleared US Customs last night and is enroute to the delivery add now.

Only inbound EMS packages that were already in storage during the fire. Your package should be safe...

I think mine got sent via priority mail and not express.

Quote:[hr][/hr]It might take up to 3 weeks if its priority mail...[hr][/hr]


serious? it's been about 10 days now, so about a week and a half to go.

Yeah registered parcel takes 2-3 weeks plus PhilPost sends out a notice for you to pick-up the package from the nearest post office. They never deliver to your house.

Bad thing about it is when you go there and pick-up your package, they will open it in front of you and charge you tax if they think you're receiving something that has commercial value.

Stupid corrupt @#%$.

On a side note, EMS tracking numbers should start with an E.

I've received priority mail previously. If I remember correct, it took a little less than a month. Picked it up from the QC post office. They didn't open it though and I didn't have to pay any taxes.

I hope I don't pay for anything for this next one.

Next time, I think I'll insist on using express.

Okay

A little EMS update.

I sent 2 boxes to the Philippines last week.

Upon arrival, stupid EMS sent the boxes straight to customs for pick-up instead of delivering them.

When the recipient went to the Pasay office to get the boxes, he was charged 19,000 pesos after the examiner opened the packages and checked every item. They assessed everything valued at $1,500. They were so pissed because the declared value was only $150. :lol:


Good thing my connect was with him (retired Philpost employee) so he only ended up paying 5,000 pesos.

I'm still heated though. Bunch of hungry @#%$.

If anyone needs help in picking up a package, let me know. My connect can always help you out for a minimal fee (he was given 500 pesos in a sealed envelope). I only suggest this if you can't justify the misdeclared/under declared goods that you'll be receiving. It will also help if you have a receipt (I suggest you scan an original receipt, photoshop the prices, print it out and have it photo copied) to show those greedy bastards. They can't do jack once you show them the receipt even if the prices are ridiculously low.

This is only the second time that an EMS package I sent was forwarded to customs. I guess they're trying to make up for all those lost $$$ when EMS burned down a few weeks ago.

I'm just thankful that the boxes have been released now. Paying an extra $100 is not bad at all especially when the total amount of the items I sent is over $6,000.

:lol:

took 5 business days for me to get my package, all i had to do was go pick it up at the salcedo village office.


they charge a minimal fee (50 pesos or 150 pesos, i forget) to deliver straight to your door.

I might be able to help you. I have someone who handles shipment of tech stuff for me, he is HK based but I think he offers shipping from the US as well. I will contact him and I will let you know once I get his reply.

I got something from Ebay shipped here via EMS. i never received anything Express (only Priority) but I've heard EMS supposedly delivers to your doorstep. That said, I was surprised to get a note today asking me to pick up the package at the Pasay office. Now I'm wondering whether I'll get charged tax or what. it's only a pair of shoes though.
