    I have several parcels from EU countries that were sent mid-December and haven’t turned up yet, as well as a letter from France (also posted in mid-December). Can only hope An Post start clearing the backlog soon.


    … and don’t get me started on the parcel sent from the NL using Asendia Spain (eh?), which has spend a week in the NL, a week in Germany, and a week in London (where it still is)!

    Anyone have experience with how long they hold your non-EU package in customs jail for? I paid customs 2 days ago and no movement, I realise that's no time at all, but wondering is there massive delays with customs even after theyve been paid?

    There's delays across the board now with absences due to Covid. I've had 'your mail will be delivered on the next working day" notifications to not get them for three days.

    Similar to you on this one though, I paid customs on a non-EU print that came through DHL from Germany on the 9th and it's still listed as sorted. So certainly a delay there too.

    Ordered something from Germany before Christmas. DHL apparently handed it to An Post (they supplied the An Post tracking number) around the 19th. Nothing heard of it since, 24 days later. Madness.

    Does anyone know if there are delays for large parcel deliveries? I'm assuming they are delivered seperately to normal post.

    Ordered something from germany. Arrived in park west and then transferred to Merrywell DSU.

    I have never had it transferred to a dsu as opposed to a normal sorting office. Is there a difference.



  • Registered Users Posts: 354 ✭✭ Cookiee


    My package came today (on a Sunday!, Postman said they deliver Sunday now because of antigen tests) so it only spent 6 days in customs after I paid the fee. Not bad, because I see some people on Twitter waiting for stuff from December and November time.

    Any luck with your delivery yet? I ordered something from Spain - the parcel left Spain on 23 December and since then there's been no sign of it arriving in Ireland. I'm hoping it is in a queue in Ireland and not stolen somewhere along the line but there's no way for me to find out what's wrong! Frustrating!

    Yeah it arrived after An Post held onto it for 24 days or thereabouts!



  • Registered Users Posts: 44 P38Man


    Glad you got yours - I'll continue in hope then 🙄

    Tracked item from the UK has been sitting as "Your delivery has been sorted DUBLIN MAIL CENTRE, DUBLIN 12" for five days now. Its sort-of urgent so this is getting ridiculous.

    Seperately, conventional letter post from the UK - periodical sent every two weeks, one issue arrived on Monday and the previous one arrived on Tuesday!



  • Registered Users Posts: 354 ✭✭ Cookiee


    Seems to be the norm, I've had UK packages went from 'your delivery has been sorted', to 'we have your delivery in' for days and days and then randomly one day it changed to out for delivery and then delivered



  • Registered Users Posts: 44 P38Man


    The last tracking message on my package was that it was on its way to destination country on 23 December 😒



  • Registered Users Posts: 1,339 ✭✭✭ crossman47


    My experience over Christmas has been of major delays in standard post - internal and external. I got a Christmas card from Dublin this morning. No postmark but pretty sure it was posted before Christmas.



  • Registered Users Posts: 44 P38Man


    My parcel turned up on the AnPost system when I checked the tracking number tonight - ‘arrived’ in Dublin this afternoon - so there are still significant delays in the system, nearly a month since it left Spain



  • Registered Users Posts: 19 Srfcsean


    An post tracker said on 20/01/2022 ur parcel is in Ireland but there’s a customs charge , my question is how did an post no there were customs charges on my parcel that was still in America 😂😂 I’m still baffled by it , how did my parcel get here before the actual plane did 🤷‍♂️



  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators Posts: 13,541 Mod ✭✭✭✭ whiterebel


    If USPS used the electronic data as An Post have been looking for, they will have all the details in advance. Your post in confusing, it says it was in Ireland on 20/1, are you saying it wasn't?



  • Registered Users Posts: 142 ✭✭ JRH


    like people have said ... Amazon parcels fly through .. like super quick . Iv been using it quite a bit now as everything from ebay and uk post gets gets returned .

    But today ... heres a new one ... Amazon prime (through anpost ) left the box outside my front door . Never seen that with an post before , like the depot is a mile away . No big deal , but just odd , id usually get a delivery note through the door , then collect at depot . Was a pricy enough item also .

    When a foreign postal service "hands it over" it just means it has finished processing in that country.

    It's not saying it has left that country. It waits for space on scheduled air flights. If many of these are cancelled a backlog builds up in the holding area.

    Quite a few Germany- Ireland flights were cancelled in the past few weeks.



  • Moderators, Business & Finance Moderators Posts: 13,541 Mod ✭✭✭✭ whiterebel


    A parcel sent last Tuesday from Cork to Dublin still isn’t delivered.



  • Registered Users Posts: 3,100 ✭✭✭ VG31


    There are plenty of cases of An Post scanning an item when it arrives in Ireland and not delivering it for days/weeks.

    Deutsche Post DHL parcels come by truck from Germany to Ireland so flights are a moot point.



  • Registered Users Posts: 2,046 ✭✭✭ silver2020


    Depends on the service requested. Standard international mail from Germany comes on aircraft.



  • Registered Users Posts: 354 ✭✭ Cookiee


    I've had this happen before, an post just leaving an amazon package on doorstep, and no joke I live on the same road as the collection depot!

    So usually they just post the 'we missed you' slip through the door. So I contacted an post about it, they told the depot manager apprently, and then the next package I received had "do not leave" written with pen on it.. so they obviously had to tell the post man he can't leave packages on doorsteps.. I'd recommend contact an post if you want and they'll tell the manager

    Happy to report no delays my neck of woods. Package delivered today a day after entering network from abroad.

    The sender marked it as "next day delivery". That was OK, but AnPost send it twice to the wrong delivery office. Btw. I am from a village near Cork.

    I expect the parcel tomorrow in Tallowbridge and the next day in Youghal. Day after in Bandon. And then returned to the sender as not able to deliver. 🙄

    I had an international airmail parcel coming from London to Dublin. Was sent on a Thursday and rang on the Tuesday when it hadn't moved. Found out it was put into "storage" on arrival to Dublin as they didn't have the capacity to sort all the mail. An post very broken atm.

    Anyone have post they've sent stuck at "your post has been accepted in" sent a registered letter from dublin to Dublin at the post office and it still says it's at the post office, no further updates. Anyone experience this? What ended up happening?
