Hey! I have someone in a swap who has sent an angel package to Germany.It's been about 3 weeks now, and she's starting to worry her angel package has gotten eaten by the postal system somewhere.  I'm wondering if those of you who swap to/from Germany could give me a bit of a heads up on how much time it usually takes to ship from the USA to Germany.  Thanks!

Did she send airmail or parcel post?  Parcel post can take up to 3 months to arrive.  Airmail is usually, at tops, 3 weeks.

It took almost six weeks for my package to Germany to arrive and I sent it first class airmail...I think it is because of their customs and not the postal service...

It just arrived to her! She did say it was held up on customs.
