Not lately after COVID lockdowns

 

Usually we use DHL - expensive but it reaches

Only good for high value items

 

Post office Air mail - useless

Standard air mail - a lot of alleged non-arrivals amongst the many which do arrive.

Prior to Covid19 nonarrivals were very seldom.

Registered air mail - constant squeals of "it has been 3 weeks " etc.; even after buyers warned about delays.

But - the things do get through eventually.

4,5,6 weeks at Durban hub is not unusual before a thing is "On Route"

And then .... operations  elsewhere  are not likely on the ball 100%.

If one has relations in reliable places like UK - it can be worthwhile sending a DHL packet with several sendings  for onward transmission via Royal Mail etc. 

Expensive, but it worked well for me.

I bought the UK postage from online auctions at a small fraction of face. That helped to offset the costs and not punish the buyers too badly.
