Oi mateys, I bought an item on ebay and the seller shipped the item to me through your services, the problem is that my package has been stuck with the same status (02:28am / Item Leaving the UK / LANGLEY HWDC) for 5 days. The parcel has been with royal mail for 7 days, I would like to know happened to it considering it says on your website that it takes from 3-5 days to get to me.

Can't see any mentions of processors on the country guide for Portugal so probably no problems with Portuguese Customs. What's the tracking number?

It is stuck in Portuguese customs. It isn't that unusual. UK customs randomly select batches for extra checks when going in the other direction.

Whats the average time it takes to be realeased from customs? I understand that they can hold it as long as the want, but it would be nice to get an average release time. Cheers.

I don’t think I have ever seen statistics for UK customs, let alone overseas customs services. But an average would be meaningless anyway, because they seem to apply different levels of checking to different batches.

Hi my tracking number is RR345970241TR

It's probably stuck in customs (and could possibly have a customs charge). UK customs choose random batches of mail for more detailed checks, your item could well be in one of those batches

Also got a parcel stuck at Langley HWDC (at least I believe so) since the 7th Aug. How long normally does it take to clear? I am getting frustrated with the delay :(
A further question, it's a $300 phone but the seller declared it as $18. I'm ok with paying VAT, but can anything else happen, such as them sending it back to seller or seizing it? Seller declared it as a 'gift'
Funnily enough its still 'in transit' from Singapore according to RM tracker, but phoning them, they confirmed its with customs according to their internal systems. Is this normal?

I think there was a fairly recent thread where it mentioned something about problems with lithium batteries coming from or passing through Singapore.

In any case there's a fairly good chance that there'll be customs charge to pay, keep an eye out for a grey card in the post

I’m in the same situation , I had a package returned from Norway and it’s been 10 or so days now and it still says it’s in transit. Is it likely to be at customs or is it more likely to be lost by now ? I’ve emailed Royal Mail too but as you know it takes 5-10 days for a response .
