Hello I'm after some help please, I dont speak polish but I am expecting a package from poland to the UK. It was posted on the Tuesday the 26th of april (which was 6 days ago) and I'm wondering when it will arrive.

I have a tracking number of RR383862976PL, I have treid the royal mail website and it says "There is no data currently available for this tracking reference. Please try again later"

Bearing in mind that Friday the 29th April till Monday the 2nd of may is a UK bank holiday so theise 4 days wont count. Generally how long does items from poland to the UK take

Also I cant seem to find the polish post office website, Could some one please track it for me on the polish website and see what it says,

Tracking number:RR383862976PL

thanks :D

sometimes it takes up to 15 WORKING days and at peak times such as xmas even longer than that. since the item's been posted from Poland you have to check its progress on Poczta Polska's website (if that's possible) or Parcel Force or whoever elses service was used. ask the sender to look it up since they have the tracking details. it won't be possible to track it on royal mail's website because they are not the service provider here.

I've always found mail from Poland to the UK quite quick.

it's not Poczta Polska's service that was used here by the looks of it, their website states there is no item with such identification number. could be Parcel Force then. i think you don't have anything to worry about too much just yet, they're still within their time frame to deliver it. bank holidays usually mess it all up for some time.

Hi there I ordered something from Poland on 24 March 2018...payment was processed and it allegedly shipped on 2nd May 2018 it is now 14th May and still no sign of it. I've sent more than 10 emails asking for info and had no response....have I been ripped off?

How was it sent? The Polish postal service is Poczta Polska. If it was just sent by ordinary Poczta Polska post and it was sent via the economy option it can literally take months. If it was sent Poczta Poksa 'priorytet' but unregistered it can reach its destination within a week or two or it can be stolen which happens quite frequently. If it's sent Poczta Polska registered (polecony) you should have received it by now. If it was sent via courier you should definitely have it by now. Check back on your original order/invoice and see what postal service was used. There might be a tracking number. If you send emails in English to a Polish company you will very rarely, if ever, receive a reply so not getting a response doesn't necessarily mean they ripped you off. Also customer service in Poland can be good or equally non-existent.

It's weird you had to wait 6 weeks for it to be shipped. Unless they made it clear that it could take that long before they send it, because they didn't have it in stock?

It can take a while. I have been shocked sometimes at how long it takes a normal letter to get from Poland to the UK. Often more than a week, sometimes close to two weeks.

Just remembered there were two Bank Holidays in the period you refer to, so it's not surprising you didn't receive it yet, even via the courier option.

Hello again
Having the same issue with a parcel from the same company as last time..I'm not going to use them again after this..I'll look again I've sent lots of emails and no response...the parcel was shipped on 21st is now 16th February...shipping cost £12.95 and was described as courier rate..I have not been provided with any tracking number..even though the website states you will get a tracking number..I have asked repeatedly! and as I say no response...have there been any issues/ holidays in Poland that might have delayed things for this length of time?

The last 2 parcels I got from them were here within 10 days...

Any advice gratefully received..

It should teach you this first time not to use their "services". Buy from the common known shops/portals only.
BTW which website/company?

"It should teach you this first time not to use their "services".
Wow! Could you be any ruder? It's more than reasonable to use the same company a second time to determine where the fault lines. One problem could be down to a multitude of reasons along the supply chain but should the same problem arise a second time it's almost certainly the fault of the company.

Getting mail from Poland


Hoping someone can tell me how long mail takes from Poland to U.K. sender said they sent it on 3-4 days express on 13th, it left Poland on 15 but the tracking shows no updates since then. How long should I wait before accepting its missing?

It varies, however if you've used Poczta Polska expect delays and potential theft.

It's only a week or so and that is normal enough.

We are waiting for some documents from Poland that were posted about 10 days ago. It is just a few pieces of paper in a letter sized package, not a parcel, I'm guessing no more than an A4 sized envelope, but still hasn't arrived. Any ideas how long this could take? I don't have much detail on how it was sent as there are multiple people in the middle between the sender and ourselves, but I think just ordinary mail! We will be away from next week and ideally would like to know it has arrived before leave...

It can be a bit unpredictable to and from Poland.

I find UK to PL normal for a registered letter - took 6 working days. I also sent a box via DPD from Ireland, which took 5 days.

Last time we got a letter from PL to UK, it took around 5 days, normal sized letter unregistered. This was about 6 months ago.

Hi, I too have ordered from Poland. I got the message from Poctza Polska on the 22nd July that my parcel has been shipped, it is now 7th of July, should I assume my parcel has been lost of stolen?

I checked the tracking in the royal mail website and it says it is still in transit over sea from Poland.

Could it be stuck in customs in the UK? Since Brexit packages that aren't properly labelled get delayed.

My documents were sent by Poczta Polska on August 1st. The parcel was sent with the status "priority". The first two days I could track the parcel on the Poczta Polska website, according to the last status there "the letter left Poland." The Royal Mail website only has the following information, which has not changed since August 3 "In Transit. This item is now leaving the originating country. More information will be available when it arrives in the UK". These documents are very important to me. And I'm very worried that the package could be lost. Does anyone know how long it takes for these packages to be delivered? Thanks for any information

Thanks for any information

be patient for a while - European mail is delivered through air mail and as you have probably heard airports currently have labour shortages
