I have one package that finally arrived after 4/5 weeks. While we were waiting for the package, we had no idea whether it had been lost or stuck somewhere. :>
The worst thing is that the package probably didn't worth 50 Euros but the sender just put $200 as the value of the package and we have to pay like 30/40 Euros to get the package.
You probably would just get a notice from the post office because you have to pay VAT on top of it. You are looking at paying 19% VAT for your package.
If a package gets stuck at customs, how long do they normally hold stuff?
I had a package mailed from the U.S., and the value was $200 (baby gear--not electronics). It's been almost 3 weeks since it was mailed, and they mailed it USPS priority.
If it is being held at customs, would I have heard something by now? I mean, how do you know whether something is being held or whether it's just lost??
Anyone deal with this?
