I checked on my tracking #, and this is what it says:
Your item is being processed by United States Customs.
Here is what happened earlier:


April 4 5:22 pm INBOUND INTERNATIONAL ARRIVAL KENNEDY AMC NY 11430

Does that mean it is being seized, or is in the process of going through customs?

I think it means customs is going to inspect the package.

That doesn't mean it has been seized.. yet. It just means it is at Kennedy being processed. Good luck.

perhaps processing could be the term they use for dispersing overseas mail-I'm sure kennedy has a large volume of mail coming in and there is a process of sorting and some inspection or whatever-I wouldn't lose all hope yet. Good luck.

I just got a package from Romania the other day. You will probably have to sign for it. It should have a red ticket taped to the package you have to sign. Just make sure it doesn't look like the package was opened and taped shut again.

You will get your package. You just happen to track your package will they posted the tracking at the customs office. All that means is they are bringing it over the boarder.. Dont worry, I know this for a fact. A bro of mine use to work for customs so I have a MAJOR inside track

chris223 is right. When you have something shipped international express (or any type of express thru USPS) there regulation is to post anytime it makes a stop and changes hands or transportaion methods It just means that your package has arrived in the states. I get stuff sent from china all the time that way and it always has that listed when I check the tracking at the website. It will probably sit there for 2 or 3 days. Then it will say something like "outbound, in route to it's delivery destination" when it says that, it has cleared and you will get it in about 2 days. Basically, it take about 5 days to get it from the day it reached the states.

ANYWAY, YOU SHOULD BE FINE. BUT THAT DOESN'T MEAN YOU SHOULDN'T TAKE THE RIGHT PRECAUTIONS WHEN YOU PICK IT UP!

i get it sent to a place like mail boxes etc. They sign for the packages when it comes in so I do not have too. Anyway, the stuff from china is growth, not as big of a deal as most AS.

Hey I have a question about USPS tracking...I sent a pkg to a foreign country the other day(express mail)When I track it all it says is that it left the country on April 2nd...why hasn't it said antything since then?? Shouldn't it tell me when it reaches its destination b/c it should be there by now??? Is USPS tracking slow or something???

Quit being selfish, your not the only package out there. It takes time for the systems to update sometimes. What class postage was it?

I go through a guy in Jordan that probably quite a few people know of on this board.. Is Jordan a flagged country? Has anyone had any problems with receiving packages from there?
