Two days after my post it cleared customs and made it here yesterday. Lesson learned, add more "lead time" to orders in the future!A week isn't unreasonable especially now. Judging by your description, these aren't "controlled substances?" If it has some indication of "medicine" on the declaration slip, it may've been pulled aside, but again, if not controlled stuff, they might very likely let it thru anyway. But that would involve it taking a bit longer in customs is all.
I wouldn't give up just yet. Wishing you good luck!
I've been told by others on other sites that DHL has their own setup. Most of the time their packages for me go into Cincinnati when coming in from abroad. Recently I ordered a router that shipped from Hong Kong. It made it from there, through customs and to me in 3 days via DHL.by the way, I have noticed very fast customs clearance with vendors using DHL. Do they get priority or have a diferent customs place? I probably sound dumb, but there is a pronounced difference in how long it takes to get through and I'm curious.
