  1. Guys, how long does it take for a normal post (in my case - my offer letter) to reach India from canada ?
    some say it takes 15 days, some say 25-30days . So please share your views
     
  2. i've heard the same buttttttttttttttttttt....
    m waiting for offer letter since 16 days.
    one of my frnds recieved it in almost a month :(
     
  3. 6-7 weeks. It could be lost too in a worst case scenario . Ask ur college to send it via courier and pay courier charges by a credit card. U will get it in 4 days.
     
  4. They have sent it before 10 days inspite of my request to them to send via Courier
     
  5. It does not matter. Tell them regular mail never arrive at home and can easily be lost in transit. It happened to me before.

    Tell them that you are willing to pay courier charges. Then, they will send you a dhl canada address where you can arrange your shipment to be picked from college by paying courier charges online.

    you see, 6 weeks was a timeline given by a cad university to me . it has been three months now. No regular mail arrived at home. I was smart enough to smell a rat and told them to send it by a courier. I got it in 4 days.

    I'm from Pakistan.
     
  6. It depends from which courier is it sent ! I got mine in 6 days .
     
  7. My experience :
    Canada Post (Ordinary) - Montreal to New Delhi - 9 days (LOR) and 10 days (CAQ)
    DHL Express (Delhi<-->Canada) - 5 to 7 days
     
  8. Thanks for your inputs guys. i received my letter today.
    Approximately 10 days. Posted on 12th, reached my home on 22nd.
    the official canada post website mentions a similar time frame for international posts.
     
  9. Great news. Seems like every thing is fast paced between India and Canada. Visa processing takes days. International Mail delivery takes days. etc

    No idea why it is snail paced for Pakistan?
