[updated 2] Customs Clearance delay
How long does it take to process the clearance of a small package?
I have an incoming package from UK.
Its been with the Bureau of Customs for 3 days now.
Take note, its still in Manila. I’m in Davao. So I guess it will still take 3 days to get here after it has been cleared there.
I’m not aware of the standard processing time that customs need to clear a package. So i tried to browse their website. Not much of a help. It got me more confused actually, When I did a search on their page this is what i got…
Nam aliquam vehicula velit. Sed posuere odio eget nisi.
Aliquam lobortis commodo lacus. Vivamus nec est vitae nibh ornare aliquam.
Morbi id libero vel tortor elementum sollicitudin. Duis auctor auctor libero.
Aliquam auctor consectetuer eros. Curabitur lacinia. Donec ac ipsum. Nunc sodales viverra felis.
Morbi et nulla. Fusce eget orci vitae dolor consequat lobortis.
Maecenas rutrum nisl vel quam. Etiam suscipit dolor eget massa.
So I checked the url-> http://www.customs.gov.ph.. Hey, I’m still in the website of the Philippine Bureau of Customs.
Delayed package… Alien website…
After 4 days of processing… finally, Customs Philippines has released my package!
Delivery arranged no details expected as of: January 16, 2008 12:48
Now, how long would it take DHL to forward the package from Manila to Davao? Lets see
