I have a situation that I have not seen before. Some scans were skipped but basically it went inbound into customs, then outbound out of customs about seven days later, and then there are two scans: arrived at Jamaica and departed Jamaica and both have the same timestamp. No tracking updates since.

Can I assume that it made it through customs and it’s just taking its time to get to a regional distribution center or is it possible that they grabbed it? What gets me is the identical timestamps of the scans. Thanks and good luck to anyone waiting.
Any updates? I would bet you probably have received by now but if not, it's coming. For me, outbound scans have a 100% delivery, but some have apparently still had them snagged but I think it's rare
Still nothing. It’s been five days since it says it departed Jamaica. If it really did it would’ve been here by now so I think either something is really messed up with shipping or more likely it got taken by customs. I agree about the outbound scans but it really should’ve arrived by now. I live very close to the POE. I don’t know. Thanks for your words of encouragement though.

Well, this is odd. I wasn't expecting this pack for a couple of weeks. Arrived yesterday at ISC NY, inbound scan, now tonight got the Jamaica scan but no outbound scan. Just dispatched from Jamaica.?? Fingers still crossed cause as I said, it's only guranteed if you get the outbound scan and this pack didn't get that. I'll keep updating

I also have a package that went inbound into customs, then shows outbound, arrival AND departure in Jamaica with the same time stamps. I'm concerned; this happened to me last month resulting in a LL. Fingers crossed; I really could use these.

So, I have a similar deal, got inbound, then arrived at Jamaica right after. No out bound. That was last Sunday. No movement since. Says the usual thing about Jamaica... on its way etc.
Never had one like that.

That’s exactly what mine had and I have not heard anything for almost 7 days. No movement. I am waiting for a LL at this point.

My package left country of origin a month ago and that was the last scan I got. Thought it was a goner until today, when very much to my surprise, I got a delivered scan. Checked the mailbox and there it was, completely intact. I've had some scans skipped in the past but this is the first time to skip all the scans, so it does happen.

Love reading these stories. I’m being my nosy self - and you certainly don’t have to answer, - but mind saying if it came from either Europe or Asia? Asia seems to take forever most often.

Anyway I’m just happy for some good news as well!! 👏👍

This is a dumb question, but I don't have much experience with Customs scans. Earlier tonight my tracking said Expected Delivery 11/22, which I know doesn't mean anything, and Inbound into customs. Then the message changed from expected delivery date to say Your item is being processed by United States customs. Does this scan mean the package is now literally being looked at by customs? vs just waiting around in the customs area for someone to decide to look at it or not?
It doesn't matter either way, but I am really curious about the scan meanings.

@surten I don’t think the scans are quite that accurate. It just means the package is in the customs area. Hopefully it comes out and continues on its way.

I just had one fly through, Once it landed everything was smoothe as far as inbound, outbound, Jamaica etc.

Only took 13 days from start to finish. I believe that's one of my fastest deliveries to date, was not expecting it for it for another week to 10 days.

Anyways, Tempted to place another order now but this time a year it's a gamble.

Mine arrived -- and in record time. No scans after it left Jamaica until it showed up at my p.o. a day later. Total traveling time was 11 days. With the odd time stamps I had been worried it was a goner. Very happy to receive! Best of luck to those waiting.

Forgive me if this has been answered before, but I don’t have too many packs hit Jamaica, in fact I’m pretty sure this is the fist time I’ve at least ever seen a scan from there.

But let’s say my letter showed a scan as processed thru IScee N/Y, (which I know, means squat in terms of its safety), and then 1 minute later a scan saying arrived at regional facility - Jamaica Int’l Dist. Center.
Is that mean my letter is I n the clear, or is that what you’re all dealing with that I read about the last couple of pages… and it doesn’t necessarily mean you’re in the clear?

Any help understanding this is appreciated, thanks!

It sounds optimistic that you're all good!

ISC is just where all international mail and packages are dumped. There are five ISCs in the USA (NY, Chicago, Los Angeles, San Francisco, and Miami). Then it would go to a distribution center like Jamaica. There it will go through customs. Until your package leaves Jamaica on its way to its destination, it is not in the clear.
