Hi Guys,

Can anybody offer any advice/help?

I had a document sent to me from the UK which arrived via Royal Mail recorded delivery on Sunday to the forwarders here, it still hasn't been sent to me yet though. Is this normal?

Starting to get a little concerned that it may be lost. Has anybody else had such a wait for documents?

Well, over here if you don't give a zip code the document does not get delivered.

Same thing happened to me a month or so ago. Was supposed to get something from England however, just gave them the address to my place instead of a zip code. The parcel ended up back in England.

I'm talking about Abu Dhabi though. Don't know if its the same case with Dubai.

Thanks for that Uberkoen.

It was my mother in law that sent it for me, I gave her my full business address including PO Box Number so I hope that is enough. Otherwise I guess I will need her to send it again or wait until family/friends come over!

^^ You mean the PO Box and not zip code .. they don't have zip codes here.

Normally if the sender has added your local phone number on the package, they will call you and ask you about your PO Box number. If there is no phone number or PO Box, good chance it'll end up back to the sender.
