I don’t know if this is news to anyone else, but, since I don’t watch TV or stay tuned to internet news about the USA much – this was news to me.
You cannot send 2 tshirts in a box from Thailand to the USA until January. I was just told this by the postmaster that runs the local post office. Apparently, it’s from the department of homeland security – USA – not Thailand’s new law.
If the package weighs more than something negligible – mine was .4kg – you cannot send it air mail. My two ultra-light packages in envelopes were mailed air mail though.
Get this – to send .4kg in a small box – it will go by BOAT. They said about 3 months to arrive. That will make my son just real pleased to get part of his Christmas gift in late February. It was 260 THB to mail it by boat (registered w/tracking).
Send small gifts this year… lol.
