Same here, I needed to sent absentee ballot for runoff election, 3 months minimum for boat. I don't vote in the runoff this time around. I hate DHL, rip off and anything sent here by them goes to customs and yes you will pay whether you should or not. If we don't have have airmail by Nov. I will sent ballot no matter how expensive, the orange fascist has to go and I don't care if he's running against a soi dog.

My last mail from the states which usually takes a couple of weeks at most, this last time in Jan 2020, took about 6 or 7 weeks. Thought lost, but it did arrive. This lockdown is getting old real fast, I think, but "Stupid is as stupid does" as the saying goes. :roll:

As far as I know the only way to get anything back to the states via air is to use UPS (office in Nong Samrong) or the Thai P.O. which will connect with DHL or you can visit one of the 3 DHL offices here in town. I don't believe FEDEX serves this area.

USEMB says allow 4 weeks for delivery which sounds like it will go by surface (boat) mail.

There are no Customs charges on couriered documents, either here or in the US.

Tam I've had pretty good luck with DHL bringing in some bicycle accessories etc without going through customs. i think the rule of thumb is that anything valued at over $25 US goes through Thai Customs and may or may not get taxed. As for the imbecile in the White House I couldn't agree with you more. He has to go and the sooner the better!!

as Sean Stone has said, "I Have No Problem with Donald Trump".

Not really any difference between him and Obama or Bush, except less Wars.

What Bush (3) Obama (7) and Trump (0) What's not to like?

Hey Mike if you got time, might want to listen/watch this point of view, then again maybe not, what you got to lose?
