Help, is package lost after arriving in Dublin from USA?

    Hi all,

    My family in the States sent me a bit of a care package for Christmas. It was sent via USPS and arrived in Dublin airport a couple weeks ago. Obviously after arriving in Dublin, USPS tracking stopped/has had no further updates.

    As I’ve never done this before, I’m unsure of the process and how long it’ll take to receive the package. It’s my understanding the package will be handed over to An Post at some point, and I have contacted them referring to the USPS tracking number to see if they have received it, and so far they haven’t.

    Any insight on this? Will I receive a customs notification before its transferred to An Post? Will the tracking number remain the same after handover from USPS? Any idea how long this usually takes?

    Many thanks to anyone who has some info on this, I’m quite lost.
