Our delivery estimates should be used as a general guide only. Please bear in mind that:  

  • restrictions and capacity constraints are causing delays in most countries
  • some countries are not currently accepting parcels
  • items may be held longer than usual by Australian and overseas customs authorities
  • all estimates are for metro destinations – items sent to regional and rural locations will likely take longer
  • circumstances can change quickly – before sending please check our international updates
