Registered Post from Australia to Switzerland

Anyone out there know how long it takes to receive a parcel via Registered Post from Australia to Switzerland? I have checked on the Australian Post website and they say 3-10 business days however I am unsure if that is through Airmail or Sea Mail. I would imagine Sea Mail would take much longer.

Thanks in advance for any input received!

Well then, 3-10 business days it is.

In fact, it doesn't matter whether they send it by air or sea. If they say 3-10 days than thats all you need to know. But of course, it would have to be one pretty fast boat to make it in 3-10 days.....maybe Richard Branson is about to attempt another world record....

Seriously, remember that inbound parcels can sometimes get delayed in customs, so could easily take twice as long.

Re: Registered Post from Australia to Switzerland

We get packages quite regularly from Sydney from the grandparents, and they arrive within the 10 day mark.
