I need to get some letters sent to me from the UK. Has anyone received mail using recorded delivery recently and know how long it might be taking?

Yes. I had 2 items sent separately by International track and signed in October and they arrived between 3 and 4 weeks later at the local post office. Its a good idea to have your phone number on the envelope so the PO can call you when they arrive.

Use the following links to track the item in each country. Only shows it reaching Girne in TRNC and allow a week for it to get to a local PO. You can't send it to a PO box but put the full address with Mersin 10, Turkey, postcode (e.g. 99300 whatever the postcode is for your area)

Have you had any arrive in 2 weeks recently? I think it's all taking longer at the moment due to lack of transport during Coronavirus. It also states on the RM website that mail can't be sent to PO boxes because they need to be signed for but I guess here it just gets held in the PO until you sign for it.

I had two parcels, not from the UK, one from Poland and the other from Albania. Both of them got to Istanbul within two days but then seem to sit there for in excess of 25 days before coming here.

I think there must be a huge backlog of post in Istanbul.

Parcel sent by recorded delivery from Scotland to Lapta Post Office which is our c/o address on 31st October. Tracking says delivery was attempted on 24th November but no one home!!! (Uh Post Office???) So in answer IF it had got to us it would have taken about 4/5 weeks. It's a small package containing two classical CDs. Don't know where it is now so will have to investigate.

On both of mine, I had the sender put my phone number and the post office rang me to say it was there.

I sent a tracked small parcel.that took 17 days to arrive at Girne Post Office, last Thursday. The recipient advised me to put their phone number on the label and they received a text to go and pick it up.

My letters seemed to be stuck in Mersin and then someone told me about the tracking website for TRNC http://gonderitakip.gov.ct.tr/
I found they had arrived in Girne then I just kept checking at the local PO until they turned up, about a week later.

Thank you for the info on TRNC tracking site, I didn't realise there was one. I now at least know that my parcel has arrived in Girne P O. It is after all a long, long way to Lapta!!!
