Please ensure you check your mailbox regularly. Signature is required for certain destinations/shipping methods, and if you are not in at the time of delivery, you will be notified by your local post office to pick up your mail or reschedule a delivery (depending on the services your post office provides).

The next scan would be either at your customs or post office when the package arrives & is processed by your local administrative offices.

There are occasions, especially during busy seasons (mainly in the US), where the postal workers neglect to scan in at checkpoints and unfortunately this is out of our control.

Here are some tips:

1. Sometimes signatures are required for international delivery. But if you're not in, or if you miss the bell/knock, the postal worker may leave a slip for you to reschedule delivery or go to your nearest post office to pick it up. Please note that if you didn't reschedule the delivery nor pick it up within a 2-3 week time frame, it will be marked as unclaimed and returned to us. We will then process it as a returned item.

2. Your local post office may be able to pull up records on where the parcel was placed, who signed for it, and certain couriers are also able to pinpoint a GPS location of delivery.
